Scary Dream



My child woke up screaming from a nightmare. I rushed out of bed because 1) I didn't want the child's screams to wake the other children, and 2) sometimes when this child screams in the night, the bed is less than a minute away from being wet.

So I pulled the child out of bed and brought him/her to the bathroom and said, "Shhhhh. You don't need to cry. Your bad dream is all over," at which point the child began to scream louder.

That's when I realized I should have cleared my throat BEFORE trying to console the child.

We'll just call you "Freddie."

LOL!

At least if the child is anything like my kids, he/she won't remember a thing in the morning.

Next time you should put a flashlight under your chin as you use that Freddie voice. Teach that kid to quit bugging you in the middle of the night :)

At least you made it before the bed was wet...did the bathroom floor stay dry, though?

hey, thanks for the tip on the sarcmark...definitely going to check that out! Could have used one today, actually.

Don't know if you'll even see this at this point but I am laughing out loud, for real
