I really wish Elizabeth slept when we went on vacation. She even slept better this time than normal vacations. She didn’t have the hours long periods of crying every night before falling asleep like normal.

Last night, she woke up crying at 1:30am. I went in and got her settled back down and she went back to sleep. She woke up an hour later, sobbing, and wouldn’t go back to bed. I took her into bed with me and she stayed awake for another two hours, but was at least calm and quiet. After four in the morning, I took her back to bed and she slept until morning.

This morning, she explained to me why she didn’t want to sleep on her crib last night. There were chipmunks in it. I wouldn’t want to sleep in a crib full of chipmunks either.

    I wonder if their names were Chip and Dale?

    I would not want to sleep with chipmunks either. Hopefully you will be able to rest now that you are back home.

      I asked her if they were Chip and Dale and she said no. She denied that Chip and Dale are in fact chipmunks and argued with me on that fact.

    These kids and their imaginations! There were alligators in Sophie’s bed last night. It’s so hard to rationalize with her at 3 in the morning!

    It’s so funny that Meghan said that about alligators. We have four crocodiles in our backyard, according to my 2 year old. But we shouldn’t worry about them, because the foxes will chase them away (which we DO actually have in the back yard).

    You can’t argue with that logic :-)

    Skeeter sleeps so good at home but is a nightmare anywhere else. Its the #1 reason that keeps home.
