I woke up with a pit in my stomach because I had a dream my daughter was jumping on a bed after I told her 10 times not to (which is a current, common, everyday, annoying occurrence). In my dream I was really angry with her and then she fell and knocked herself unconscious and I felt awful after the fact for being mad at her. I have weird dreams that sometimes come true (If I dream you are pregnant…you better watch out) so I was nervous this would happen future.
After my heart slowed down, and I couldn’t fall back asleep (surprise, surprise) off I was to quietly get some water. I was still on thin ice after I woke my husband up in the middle of the night, so I was on my best behavior. I decide to peep in on my little angel to see how cute she is and instantly that pit in my stomach is back.
Half asleep, I peer in at her bed and she is GONE? I instantly awake and realize she is on the floor luckily.
Saturday I decided to move the”bed rail pillow” to give her more room in the bed, which was going great until tonight. I ran over to her to make sure she was breathing since in my cra-cra head I had already had her kidnapped and murdered when I didn’t see her in bed, I had to be sure she was alive. Especially because she didn’t stir when I entered the room and gasped. She could hear an ant fart normally and luckily she was fun. That’s when I ran for my phone to take a picture of this minor panic attack so I could explain it to my therapist.
Moral of the story-I woke up and checked on her for a reason. Her little head was stuck under the bed, if she would have tried to get up she probably would have freaked and Mom’s always know when something is up. They can tell in your voice, by the look in your eyes, and mannerisms. I have had a few instances when I knew something was up with her, and it was. No matter what, big or small…Always trust your Mommy gut! (even if it is in your dreams).
