Bean has had nightmares since she was a couple hours old. At least that’s what I think. So now at age 3 when she wakes up, oh, 4-5 times a night (almost every night) I’m ready to pull my hair out.
For a while prayer worked. We’d pray together at bedtime, and then when she had a nightmare we’d ask Jesus to make it go away. But after a while it stopped working for her – I doubt Jesus stopped answering, but I’ll never understand the complexities of the 3-yr-old psyche and how prayer affects it.
So we moved Bean into her little brother’s room. Yes, he’s 18 months old. And apparently he’s super-baby, because he can protect her from all the nightmares in the world! Nothing scary can get past Little Man with 3 binkies in his crib. I don’t know what it is, but when she sleeps in his room she sleeps through the night. No nightmares.
Now, what to do if you’re a MOO? I sadly have no advice for you. But if you wish to dish, please leave your comments in my … (what rhymes with dish and wish?) You get the idea… For more works for me tips, head over to Rocks in my Dryer.
