So last night while lying in bed with Lil’ A he said something that totally blew me away (oh and he have said a lot of things that blew me away lately!)
“Mommy, A had a bad dream last night!” this coming from my 3 years old mouth and it stunned me not only that he said it in a full sentence but then he was able to describe the dream “A was in a train and the train sinking, Mommy”.
Okay, maybe he had watched too many Polar Express and yes, he is train-crazed but had moved on from Thomas to just everyday trains (and planes!) and there was a scene where the train almost sinks in a frozen lake.
This is the first time he had describe a dream and I am taken by it.
My only answer to him was “It’s okay, pumpkin…bad dreams are not real they are just stories of your sleep, sometimes you will get good dreams, sometimes you will have bad dreams.” As I can’t think of any better answer then I pulled him into my arms holding him and planted a kiss (or two!) while he nestled his curly head on my collar bone.
Aaah….if only Mommy can protect you in your dreams too.
