Bill took Owen downstairs while I tried to get Sydney back to sleep. She tossed and turned and whimpered for about two hours (she also ended up with a 103 degree fever, which may have been the reason why she woke up in the first place), and then she decided she was done trying to go back to sleep and we went downstairs to join the boys.
Around 4 am, the kids finally wore down and we were all able to get to sleep. Poor Bill had to get up 3 hours later to go to work, and Sydney woke up crying shortly thereafter, hot with fever again.
Both the kids are snoozing now, but of course I can't get back to sleep despite only getting about four hours last night. Okay, I spoke too soon - I hear someone getting up...and here comes Sydney, looking miserable and sleepy. Between the time change and the constant illness, we are a wreck here at Chez Gardiner!
