They are still not to the level of weird achieved during pregnancy....but pretty close
What?! I didn't write down for posterity my crazy pregnant dreams?
Here's a quick rundown on the absolute-hands-down-oddest-dreams-I've-ever-had:
While pregnant with String Bean I dreamt I went to the car while in labor and delivered....a litter of kittens. Ugly ones. That was disturbing to me for a couple reasons:
1) I hold cats in utter contempt. I cannot stand them. Unless they are completely outdoor animals and keep the rodent population down....maybe.
2) I had always assumed my offspring would at least achieve a "homely" status.
But for my daughter to be born an ugly version of an animal that I hold in disdain.....that was a hard one for me to swallow.
While pregnant with Bitty Bean the crazy dream did not concern delivery. (Thankfully) It instead involved the drive home from the hospital. In the dream she was safely loaded into her car seat and had a lovely pink blanket tucked around her..... then the car seat was set on the ground next to the car as we loaded everything else in.....and then we drove off. We just left our 3rd daughter in the parking lot of the hospital and went and had lunch.
It seems food is a recurring theme of my dreams
However, my wild and wacky dreams while pregnant with the girls were NOTHING compared to what happened in my brain with the man-child. In the dream, we went to the hospital and I delivered Boy Bean....but he wasn't a baby....or a chocolate bar....or a litter of kittens....he was a fully-grown werewolf. And as soon as the umbilical cord was cut, he turned to attack me. So, there I was, running down a main thoroughfare of the city....in my hospital gown....being chased by my newborn-werewolf-man-child.
Thankfully, in the past two weeks Boy Bean has not shown any signs of being anything other than 100% human. But I'm still keeping my running shoes handy.
Well, to be honest, now that I've actually written down those dreams....my post-partum one's are not even worth mentioning.....I mean, no one will need therapy from those! Although maybe I should see someone...
