I thought it couldn't get worse. I was wrong.

Good news: My cold is much better. So is Riley's.

More good news: Riley slept really well last night, 7:15 to 1:30 then a feeding then back down until 6:00.

Bad, bad news: Maddie woke up EVERY 30 MINUTES all night. All night! I tried putting her in the crib, putting her in her car seat, putting her in bed with us, feeding her, you name it. She was wide awake and wanted to play. Oy. GH's mom took her in the wee small hours and let me and GH get some much-needed sleep. I'm torn between feeling bad for Maddie--she's someplace unfamiliar, she's coming down with a cold--and feeling like she is working me. If we'd been at home, I would have been tempted to let her CIO, but GH's parents would pitch a fit and just not let that happen. Also, I don't think she'd be acting like this if we were at home, so it's kind of a moot point.

I'm hoping for better tonight, optimist that I am! I'm not going to say that it can't get worse because that would just be asking for trouble.

Yeesh...sounds pretty awful, so sorry to read that you had such an awful night, glad that you got some help and were able to get a little sleep. Hope the sleeping schedule gets back on track.

The pressure of parenting in front of the in-laws must just add to the fun. I'm sorry Maddie had a hard time. I hope you're home by now and getting settled back into a routine.
