It is 6:15 a.m. and Jimmy and I are just getting up. Last night was a rough one. Madi crawled into bed and totally crashed at 5 p.m. We tried to get her up for dinner but she wouldn't budge. So we let her sleep. She woke up hungry at 11 p.m. and was pretty wired. We gave her some "melatoney" as she calls it and it worked for a few hours. She woke again at 2 a.m. and really had trouble. We finally broke down and let her lay down on the loveseat and watch her Barbie movie on the itouch. It ran out of battery after about an hour. At least Jimmy and I managed to sneak in some sleep during that hour. At around 4:30, after the itouch failed her, I insisted that she get back into bed with us. We were all frustrated, but we managed to laugh at the situation. As Jimmy said, "these are the things that memories are made of."
Madi finally fell asleep again, and we are trying to let her sleep in as long as she can. She is so excited to get Charlie today that she would ask Jimmy what time it was every five minutes that she was awake during the night. I think we might have to have a family nap this afternoon.
We are meeting our guide, Tracy, at 8:30 in the lobby this morning and will be on our way. We promise to keep you posted as best we can.
