A Family Sickness and A Family Lost
Our young one has had trouble sleeping due to his stuffy nose. He's a little better today, but we're hoping that will be gone sometime within the next few days. The horrible thing about all this is that now my wife and I starting to feel some of the symptoms... Sore throat... itchy eyes, slight runny nose... Oh man... If one of us gets sick... it's going to be hell at home.
I also wanted to mention dreams in this post. I'm sure we all can agree that children have some vivid imaginations. They soak things up like a sponge and they say the funniest things when you least expect them. Well, I don't really know which bucket to put this episode...
The other night, our daughter dropped in on us in bed exclaiming that she had a nightmare. Fair enough, she's had a few that involved her pillow missing or her eating a giant marshmallow. No biggie, right? Well, the next morning she decides to tell me what her nightmare was about. It turns our that she had a dream where she had no family. I assured her that she will always have a family and that we'll always love her. Her voice cracked, just a little, and then told me about how scary it was.
Then again... maybe kids just grow up too damn fast now a days... I'll let you know once I figure it out. Until then. Later!
