In brief: 4yr old

Children are continually growing and changing thier habits.
They also have mental stresses adults may not realise. If you realize a real problem with your childs health, for gods sake, take her to your pediatrician and get her examined.

In brief: Not restful sleep?

A child may not be getting restful sleep, due to snoring, being in the "wrong" sleep stages, or other problems.
Such a child can be tired in the daytime, and sometimes irritable or even hyperactive. Also, there may be a non-sleep issue, such as anemia, lead poisoning, medication side effects, thyroid imbalances, etc... A visit to the doctor, and maybe a sleep study & lab tests, can be helpful.
