Our youngest son had always slept through the night beautifully. Until the month of June. We visited family and while staying with them Liam began cutting his first teeth, which meant he began waking up in the night. It has taken quite a bit of time to get him out of this habit, but for the last three nights he has slept for 11 solid hours!

I don't know if it's because I'm not having broken sleep but I have been having the craziest dreams. Last night I dreamed that my living room was filled with empty laundry baskets! Two nights ago I dreamed that I had a party in my children's piano teacher's back yard and we woke her and her husband up. In my dream I invited them to come join us and even gave them a potted geranium for their troubles but they did not want to hang out.

I seem to have always had vivid dreams. I can still remember a hand full of dreams I had as a child. I had three that were recurring. As a very young child, maybe 5, I would dream of winter and winter clothing. In my dream my mom was bundling me up, to the point of not being able to move, and I would go outside and sneak into the backyard. Once there I would strip off my scarves, mittens and hat and bury them in the snow. But then spring would come and the snow would melt and my mom would find out what I had done! I had that dream pretty frequently as a kid.

I love hearing about dreams, especially from my kids.


  1. empty laundry baskets??? has to be a dream....

  2. Dreams are so insane! I really hate it when I have quasi lucid dreams... they're the ones where I know that I'm dreaming, and I know what I want to happen, but then I'm not lucid enough to make it happen, and I get all dream-frustrated. Sucks.
