In My Dream Last Night
I think I’ve mentioned that I used to sing to my sons each night after stories and before bed (and before they would start goofing around with each other, climbing up and down the bunk bed, “Mommy, he won’t stay in his bed”, “Tell him to be quiet”, “Mommy? Mommy? MOOOOOOOOM!!!”). They typically picked ‘When You Wish Upon A Star’ or ‘Somewhere Over The Rainbow’. I dreamed about this last night. Their bedroom was decorated in a way that I wish I could have afforded, the lighting was different than the reality. But those boys? They looked as magical as little boys do, smelled of Johnson & Johnson shampoo, and were fetching in their He-Man pajamas. I woke up with a wet pillow that I was holding so tightly I didn’t recognize at first what it was. But I’m very glad it wasn’t a kid – I would’ve smothered him (or awoke to some serious screaming).
When Aaron and Theresa married last year, he and I met on the dance floor for ‘our’ dance. And he whispered in my ear, “Mom, I’m gonna get you”…He did, he does, he always will..
Wishing you a tranquil kinda Tuesday…
