Jack: Mom, can we meet each other tonight in our dreams and play all night?
me: Good idea! Let’s try it!
Jack: I don’t know how to actually DO it though…
me: Okay, I’ll come find you and tap you on the arm. If it’s the middle of the night, then you’ll know it’s a dream right?
Jack: Ha ha! Yeah, you get me then we can go and play. I want to go to the bowling alley.
me: I think they’ll be closed.
Jack: Mom…the DREAM bowling alley will be open.
me: Oh yeah! Didn’t really think about that. (I tap him on the arm)
me: This is a dream and I’m waking you up to come play with me.
Jack: (puzzled look on his face) Huh? No it isn’t a dream yet!
me: How do you know you’re not sleeping right now?
Jack: (punches me in the arm)
me: OW!!! Hey!!
Jack: Ha ha ha! See? In a dream it wouldn’t hurt.
me: We’ll just see about that…

That’s funny. I used that when Madison was having nightmares. We would meet in ‘dreamland.’ Before bed we’d talk about what we were going to do. It worked very well.
I will freak out if I have a dream about Jack. 🙂
Heehee. Smart kid. I dole out random slaps, punches, pinches and tickles to remind Noah he’s awake all the time.
I’m gonna have to ramp up on that kind of stuff, just so there’s no confusion. ha ha!
