What Happens After a Long Day

Elizabeth had a nightmare last night and woke up at 3:00am.

And then she never went back to sleep.

I tried for an hour to get her to go back to sleep. Then I brought her in our bed and told her that she could stay if she went back to sleep. She didn’t. But she was quiet and just poked me repeatedly with all her pointy little appendages. We may have dozed a bit more, but neither of us really slept again.

So then we went to the zoo today for six and a half hours.

This is what Dibits looked like when we got home.


And then after I woke her up and brought her inside, this is how she looked.



I think perhaps an early bedtime tonight…
