AH tossed and turned all night with bad dreams. Even after putting her in bed with us, she kicked and whined. It was like watching a puppy when they’re sleeping and they suddenly start barking in their sleep; you wonder what it is they could be dreaming about.
After trying everything to comfort her so she would
be quiet so I could get some sleep sleep soundly, she was still stirring. And by stirring, I mean running her feet up my back as though she were climbing stairs.
She was talking in her sleep, so I asked her what was wrong. I hoped that I could figure out what it was she was dreaming about that had her so upset.
I asked her, “Baby, what’s wrong? Why are you crying?”
“I can’t do it. I can’t do it all by myselllfff.”
Ah, of course.
Because what’s more troubling to a 3 year than not being able to something by his/her self?
