I was woken up by Joshua last night as he tucked the blankets around me and dragged me to his side of the bed. "what's the matter?" I asked. I knew he was dreaming.
he often does funny things while he sleeps . . . and I wake him up and tell him it was all just a dream.
"the chandelier is going to crash down on top of you!" he warned me.
I wasn't surprised that he was having nightmares about that chandelier. I've been secretly afraid of that chandelier since the day we moved in.
I thought about waking him, but instead I just thanked him. it was nice to be rescued.

That is AWESOME! My dad used to wake up and rescue us from the tigers (during a really stressful period in his career). We'd be up doing homework in the living room - and he's stumble out and tell us it was all under control! Mildly disturbing but very amusing and endearing!

that's so funny. The other day Luke was snoring and I gently elbowed him and asked him to turn over...and kindly in his sleep he said "sure honey, you can turn over." I was like, umm, that's not what I was asking...He didn't remember that...
