Halle has always had particularly vivid dreams. Sometimes I even hear her talking in her sleep when she’s having an exciting one. It’s rather cute, but can also be problematic.
A couple of years ago I wrote about her adventures with leaves in Dreamland, but more recently her dream involved a giraffe.
Middle of the night, she woke up from a full bladder that, coincidentally, interrupted her as she was having a very thrilling ride upon a giraffe.
I can sympathize. After all, it’s not often that someone gets to ride on a giraffe!
So she very understandably was quite angry at having lost that.
After answering nature’s call, I coaxed her back to bed and told her to try to find the giraffe in Dreamland again but alas, when I asked her about it the next morning she said that the giraffe hadn’t come back.
I once read an article that said that very small children often can’t tell the difference between the dreamstate and reality, and can even get so excited by what’s happening in the dream, that they’ll even get out of bed and run around the room while in their dreamstate adventure scene!
