This post is about a dream I had, but first let me take you on a journey.
Earlier this week, the lovely Eden Riley put a call out for advice on how to get her youngest boy to sleep in his own bed as she was crazy tired. I keenly jumped in to add my two cents worth, because I’m good like that. However, my advice was crap. I told her that I often awoke to find at least one, maybe two, of my three children sleeping wedged between myself and my husband.
So, when last night came I thought I’d try out a new approach. I closed my eyes, I summoned all my inner energy and I willed my children to sleep the whole night through in their own bed. Yep, that’s right – I willed them to sleep. It didn’t work.
Miss 4 slept the whole night through in her own bed, except we forget to put a pull-up on her and she awoke dripping wet. Nearly 3 refused to go to bed and instead somehow managed to convince us to give her chocolate custard while watching Keeping Up With The Kardashians. She then climbed into bed with us and bounced up and down squealing for half an hour. That, in turn, woke the 1yo who then screeched until we let her into our bed. When she was put back to “sleep” she spent what felt like the entire night rolling over and sitting up. She would sit there staring at us and rattling the bars of her cot, before one of us would put her flat again, only to have her repeat the process continually until morning.
And that, my friends, is when the title of this post comes into play – The Snot Dream. For the few moments I actually slept last night I had this recurring dream. I had this dream that there was a piece of dried snot stuck up my nose. I kept trying to sneakily pick it out, but every time I’d give it a go someone would come and talk to me. I had the same dream over-and-over-and-over. Each time I’d be somewhere different and each time I had snot stuck up my nose. Even when I was sleeping I was being tormented. It was so cruel. I fear I may never get a good night’s sleep EVER AGAIN.
Do you get a good night’s sleep at your house or, more fittingly, have you ever had a snot dream?
