Hot Dog Anyone?
My children often have nightmares and I find them tapping my shoulder, in the middle of the night, wanting to crawl into bed with me. I try to comfort them and then make them a bed on the floor, or tell them to go back to their room. It is a pretty common occurrence and usually their nightmares are pretty scary.
Well it just so happened Savanah came in my bedroom the other night (it is mostly Caleb or Kennedy). She tapped my shoulder and told me she "had a bad dream." I told her it was ok and that she needed to go lay back down. But she was obviously still scared, so I crawled out of bed and made her a bed on the floor.
In the morning I asked her what she dreamed about. She shook her head no and didn't want to expound on last nights terrors. But I told her to tell me and we could talk about it. I finally coaxed it out of her. Here is her dream in her words~
" I was playing hide-n-go seek with Chandler. (this is her cousin) We found a really good place to hide and Caleb was looking for us. When he found us, he thought we were giant hot dogs and ate us."
At this point she teared up and I seriously had to turn my head to hold back the laughter. That was it! That was the dream? No goblins, or bad men, or monsters? Beau comforted her as we both tried hard to compose ourselves. I usually feel sympathetic and did, it is just that her "nightmare" took me by surprise!!
I had to write this one down. It is one I don't want to forget and I am sure when I tell her when she is older we will have a lot to laugh about! HA
Also, I finally has some time to post another Photography session I did last Wednesday! Click here!
