Tuesday


Last night Lucy was awake for almost two hours. I went into her room and she looked at me and said "momma, I am so sad" when I asked her why she said that "Jacob got squished by a car". She was sobbing. I tried to tell her it was just a bad dream and that baby Jacob was asleep at his house and she shook her head and said "no momma, he pushed down and picked up a stick and a car squished his whole whole body momma" and she continued sobbing. I calmed her down and repeated that he was fine and sleeping and that she had a bad dream. This went on for a long time. Finally sleep overtook her. This morning she fretted about it again and even a call to Jacob's mom did little to soothe her nerves. Good thing we had a playdate/dinner scheduled. When Jacob arrived at our place tonight she looked so happy, and for a long time was peaceful and sweet to him.


I hope that she has sweet dreams tonight. Poor baby.

That is scary for her to have such an awful dream with someone she knows so well.

Speaking of which I had a dream (not bad) last night and you and Lucy were in it. We were at your house - but it wasn't your real house - it was another one of your houses ;) I can't really remember what it was about but we were doing a lot of moving around in your big house. Ha! I'm sure it has nothing to do with all of the changes about to happen over here.

oh poor Lucy.
I have very, very vivid dreams. At 35 you would think I know a dream from wakefulness, but this weekend I had a terrible dream that I couldn't find my husband. I woke and my husband wasn't in bed. I went downstairs and he wasn't there. I found in the basement. I was shaking with fear.
At 35 I understand Lucy's bad dreams.
Hugs to her. and you.

Oh poor little girl. That's a scary dream for an adult, let alone a 3 year old! Sweet dreams, Lucy!

Oh for sweet :) Glad she was able to see him so quickly after the dream to ease her mind.

So sad. It is tough to have dreams like that as an adult let alone at her age. I have to say she is so adorable. Lucy has such beautiful eyes. Love your blog.
