That's about it, really.
A thread for those of us who aren't asleep, for whatever reason.
Badgerlette decided that sleeping from 8 to 11 is totally enough sleep for a little girl, and after patting, rocking, bottling, driving aimlessly, she's watching superted.
I give up, I'm tired. She'll collapse eventually.

I'm awake due to the storm, which had me going in to check on my girls and finding miss 2 years old sleeping in vomit. So a late night shower for us. I hope she is ok and not sick.
DF will be home from work in an hour or so, so I may as well stay up.

Miss Cookie, hope baby sleeps for you soon.
Monkeysmum, you POOR thing. *slightly awkward hug* MS is bad enough, HG is a whole new league. Make sure your tablet is charged and bagged always!
Runaway- Hope your DD is ok and the storm leaves you alone mostly.
Badgerlette is still awake. Never mind, I have tea!
What did all we insomniacs do today?
