So we're on vacation with the family, all seven cousins and assorted aunts, uncles and grandparents, and the kid's sleeping on a little blanket nest in the corner of our room. The other morning, around 5, we heard a series of sad wails, then something I still think was, "I can't find the green one!"
I've always wondered what litle kids dream about, but whenever I've tried to ask the kid, she just replied with whatever I suggest to her. "Did you dream about books?" "Yeah." So I quickly abandonned that approach.
But this cry made me think: if mine are about being stuck in an office, and screwing up the electronic bill paying so the insurance gets cancelled, why wouldn't a 2-yo's anxiety dreams be about a matching game where none of the tiles match?
