We all know our kids have bad dreams. We’re the ones holding their hands and soothing them back to sleep. But what happens when you have a really bad dream? You know the ones I’m talking about. These are the dreams where something has happened to your baby.
I had one such horrible dream last night. My youngest child had been taken away from me. They would not give him back. I knew he was safe. But, he was no longer mine. I know enough about dream interpretation to realize that a few things could be at play in my subconscious: a new custody agreement and my preschooler’s recent comment that he is getting too old for things like holding my hand. I’m sure these things all culminated in a horrible nightmare that I couldn’t find my baby boy. Nonetheless, those dreams are the worst!
I know I’m not alone in these kinds of dreams. Tell me, what kinds of scary dreams do you have about your children?
