"Sweet Dreams"

Since Austin started school a few weeks back, he has been having more nightmares.  I have never seen him experience so many in such a short time period, a little overwhelming and heartbreaking.  What is interesting is he is verbalizing what has happened in the dream right away and will wake me in the middle of the night to tell me.  This is such a huge development for Austin because sometimes he has trouble telling me what is a dream and what is his imagination.  If he tells me right away about his dream, I know it is not his imagination but if he comes to me with a "dream" later in the day, I suspect it is a daydream.  (He still calls it a "dream".)  This is going to be a little harder to explain to him.  He is also having many wonderful, happy dreams too and can verbalize those to me as well, which is GREAT!

Kaleigh being the sweet and sassy little girl that she is, has heard Austin say he has had a nightmare and this makes her feel badly for him.  When it is time to go to sleep, she finds Austin and gives him a kiss and says "Sweet Dreams Austin!"  What wonderful babies I have ... :)

What great progress! I feel bad for him with all of the nightmares. Hopefully with time they'll fade. I'm also really glad Kaleigh is being sympathetic with him. Sweet girl. :)

Hi Victoria,

Yes, he is doing very well. I feel horrible too but I think I may have found a remedy. (It is going to be in my next blog post "Hodgepodge".) Isn't she so sweet? Thanks!

Hope all is well!

That is so sweet of Kaleigh! It's amazing how kids can fight and bicker (at least mine do!) but then they can also be the sweetest, most tender little angels when their sibling is in need of it.

Thanks Judy! :) Yes, mine bicker and fight too!!! LOL!

I know, isn't it great?! It just warms my heart when Kaleigh gives Austin a hug or a kiss to make him feel better. :)

Thanks again!
