Do you ever remember when you were a child and you had those bad dreams and nightmares? I still do even though I can’t remember what they were about. I can still remember that bad sensation. You wake up and your heart is beating so fast and it feels so real…
Well my two youngest boys are having those bad dreams… I am trying to remember if Joey ever had a bad dream and wake up crying in the middle of the night. Nope I can’t remember not even one bad dream that he would have.
Little Luis has been having lots of bad dreams lately and it is frustrating when he can’t tell me what it was about. He wakes up crying and it is always around 2 and 3 in the morning. The instant I hear him my hearts pounds ever so fast! I go running across the house to his room trying not to step over Peanut Butter (My little dog) to go to his room. When I get there I just take him in my arms and rub his back till I get him back to sleep.
Last night it happened again around 2:30 am. I rushed to his side and calmed him down. Then around 3:30 am I hear a cry again buy as I am dashing from my bed I realize that it was not Little Luis and that it was Mickey. He was standing on his bed and as soon as I ran into the room he held his hands out as if he new that I was going to his aid.
I asked him what was wrong and he said “Mommy I had a bad dream with a Gorilla” I calmed him down but he did not want to sleep in his bed so I carried him to our room and laid him down to sleep.
At 4:00 am I hear another cry and dashed out of bed again to Little Luis side. Calmed him down and off to try and get at least ½ hour sleep as I wake up to work at 4:30. Needless to say I am very tired today.
I wonder what can be causing these bad dreams? I really do watch what the see on TV. Any suggestions? We always pray at night and that comforts Little Luis. I guess I am just frustrated with what can be causing them…
