Our daughter had the weirdest dreams last month and I totally spaced it until last night when another happened. Which means that this will not only be a post about the love of my life, Reese’s Pieces Chocolate Cookies (but really, I’m obsessed with these) but it’s also going to be about sleep.
Or the lack there of since becoming a mom I seem to sleep so light I can hear a bug sneeze.
And sleep walking. I haven’t done it, but our oldest daughter went through a creepy night terrors phase. Just wait until you’re out cold and then suddenly she’s standing by your bedside sound asleep and yet staring at you. HOLY CRAP.
And of course the nightmares. I’m going to give you a quick run down in no particular order and then I want you to leave a comment with a weird dream your kid had and I’ll randomly pick a winner for a $25 Amazon gift card. Ready? She has dreamed,
A dog was trying to sit on her lap.
Her toes were hurting because they were stuck in a sock. Which they weren’t, she was barefoot.
Soap bubbles were trying to get her from the sink.
It was dark.
A witch was outside (note to self, Halloween costumes at school can be creepy)
Yup. The soap bubbles one was definitely the weirdest. Now let’s hear yours!
