I generally don't remember my dreams. I usually wake up with absolutely no idea what I thought about during the night. Which is just fine with me, because the dreams I DO remember are generally weird.
But sometimes, I'll be be-bopping along through my day, and it'll just hit me. A vivid image of my dream from the night before will just fill my mind. That obviously happened to me today or else I probably wouldn't be telling you about this.
Apparently last night I dreamed that I had a baby, but I was a TERRIBLE mother. I kept leaving my baby places. Or I'd just leave the house, leaving the baby on the changing table. Or I'd put the baby in the bed with me, and I'd roll over on top of it. (I say "it" because I couldn't tell whether it was a boy or girl). And I kept trying to tell everyone that they should take my baby away because I was such an awful mother, but no one would listen.
Definitely NOT a fun dream. Especially because I really do worry that I won't have an ounce of motherly instinct when I finally do have kids. I panic that I'll constantly be googling things like "What to do when you drop your baby" or "How to keep my children from hating me."
Okay I won't actually google those things. But I am pretty clueless. Thank goodness I have an amazing family who'll make sure I don't screw my kids up too much. :)
