I always wonder do kids dream. Sometimes I see my kids smile and grin while they sleep. Hmm..yes confirm they dream. Probably dreaming of something happy (e.g. got lots of food to eat, got lots of people to love them, etc…). But sometimes they have bad dreams too…as a result of playing too much during the daytime.
I have myself to blame sometimes when Faythe has bad dream. That’s because I always like to play with her after work, before sleep on weekdays. Sometimes we play hide n seek, sometimes we play tickling each other. Other times we will play blowing each other’s ears or even some other silly but entertaining game.
Faythe herself is a very playful toddler. Sometimes she can laugh by herself and once she started it, she goes on non stop laughing *roll eyes*. And me being a playful person will join her for fun.
Here’s what happens when she has bad dream. The incident happened 2 days ago.
Moday morning (2-3am)
Everyone were sound asleep, suddenly Faythe cried while sleeping on her own mattress. I was very lazy to pick her up so I just let her cry for a while. Daddy picked him up after 5 minutes and tried to soothe her. He put her in between us, but she still cry.
Mommy: Faythe…oi oi ah…Mommy here (this normally works, once she hears my voice she will return to sleep quietly)
Faythe: *still crying*
Mommy: *aiks…not working*…kept quiet
Faythe: gwen ma…gwen ma (calling my MIL)
Mommy: *alamak…why this girl dreaming bout MIL kah* Grandma oi oi lahh…you oi oi OK, tomorrow we go grandma house
After awhile she stopped and continue sleeping
Monday morning (7am)
I just finish taking my shower, dressing up when suddenly:
Faythe: mommy..mommy…( she just wake up, call me twice, then hit the sack again)
Mommy: aiyoo…dreaming bout me pulak
When she woke up, I decide to ask her what she dreamt about
Mommy: Faythe…just now you dream ah?
Faythe: *kept quiet*…she must be wondering what is dream huh…
Mommy: What did you dream about?
Faythe: *Still quiet*…Daddy (she said)
Mommy: huh..u call grandma and mommy but u dream bout Daddy?? You sure or not?
Faythe: *kept quiet*
So what’s my conclusion on her 2 bad dreams:
Ahhh…must be dream of Daddy beat her up, and she was asking for help from MIL and myself kekeke…Daddy likes to cuddle her and play tricks on her very often, but sometimes she doesn’t like it..so probably that went into her dream.
