12:30am.....I'm just falling asleep as Isaac wakes up crying. Terry goes to check on him but can't figure out what he's saying. I believe he's saying "monster", and so I go in and lay with him. Terry comes and saves me a few minutes later. Isaac goes back to bed.
1:00am......Isaac starts crying again, and is out of his door by the time I get to it. He comes and lays with us (a rare occurance) and starts crying when I won't take him down stairs. By crying I mean wailing.
1:10am.....Terry has a minor meltdown because he needs to sleep and Isaac gets more upset. I quiet him down, and then he lays with us for a while.
1:30am...Terry takes Isaac back to bed.
1:45am....Isaac's door opens...I take him back to bed and sing once quick verse of Away in a Manger.
2:00am...Terry is mostly back to sleep. I am not.
2:15am...still awake and no sign of sleepiness.
2:30am....surfing the web on our laptop in bed....
3:30am...finally falling asleep.
6:30am...the baby starts talking in her crib.
7:30am...Isaac is up.
I'm only on cup of coffee #1. Fairly certain more will follow.
NOTE: Terry was well founded in his meltdown. You see, if I take Isaac to bed after he's upset, I often can't leave without upsetting him again. Terry doesn't cause that effect. So...whenever Isaac wakes up, Terry usually goes in first for a quicker exit. Terry knew that if Isaac didn't sleep, he wouldn't either!
