Madeleine woke me up last night around 1:30 am. I heard her crying and fussing in her room and when I came in she was sobbing and incoherent. I finally managed to sort out that she thought there were bugs crawling all over her bed.
I'm going to Sting-er-eee!

I flicked the lights so she could see there weren't any bugs (but not too long so as not to wake the other kids) and got her calmed down enough to go back to bed. Unfortunately she would not go to sleep and this same scene was repeated at 1/2 hour intervals until 4 am.
