i don't get nightmares that much anymore ~ you know the kind that wake you up in a cold sweat, covers up to your chin (because at night, blankets covering your whole body somehow protect you from dream monsters), have to turn on the light on sort of dream. every once in a while i have those, but not too often.
my new nightmare is what i like to call the mom nightmare. i am constantly having dreams about things not getting done, me running late, missed school conferences...those sorts of things. and they wake me up, and i can't get back to sleep. the only difference is that covering myself head to toe with a blanket will not protect me from the disorganization that i sometimes feel about being a parent.
so this is why it's 2:56 am, and i am writing this post. because i just had a dream that it was just me and four kids (my dream had to add two more kids into the mix to make it extra scary), and we were running late. like school has already started and no one can find their jacket sort of late. i woke up with my whole body clenched in anxiety and now i can't get back to sleep.
at least with a monster nightmare, you wake up and realize that no such thing could ever happen, and after a while, the dream sort of fades away and you can laugh about how silly it was that you were scared. but when the sun comes up in a few hours, it's a definite possibility that the kids and i will be scrambling around trying to get ready for work and school. but you know what? that's ok ~ that's no nightmare, it's just life.
