Last night was rough for me. The boys were up a lot because they both have colds and Bean was having nightmares. Crying in her sleep, screaming occasionally. Eventually I joined her, snuggling in to calm her down.
Today at lunch she told me that she had awful dreams last night that I told her no more dessert. These weren’t dreams about monsters or storms or stranger danger. No fear involved. She kept me from sleeping from 2AM on because she had dreams that she wouldn’t get any more sweets after supper.
