Alice woke, crying, the 'not-going-to-calm-down' cry, just before 11pm last night. It took me several minutes to get upstairs, by then she was hot and sweaty and in a real state.

It took me several minutes to get her to the breathy stage and a few more before she could say what was wrong. I asked if she felt poorly, if something hurt or if she'd had a bad dream. The second time she answered that it had been a bad dream - even uttering those words was enough to start the 'ugly' cry off again, she was very upset, it was upsetting to see her like that.

Needless to say she then spent the night in my bed and has been very tactile ever since, but she still won't (or can't) say what the dream was about.
