Bed bugs

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.

Maybe she had two much cake and ice cream and it gave her bad dreams. It was totally worth it her, of course.

Any signs of insect bites? One always wonders. Of course, it could be any number of things including bad dreams and just plain growing pains.

No sign of insect bites however in the light of day - 2 thoughts came to mind...saltine crackers and consumption of a cake containing eggs. The crackers having been munched all over the house yesterday.
