Worst Dream Ever
Would it be monsters? Someone dying? A car accident?
A plane crash? Being chased by a shark?
A million things can go through your mind, but I doubt you ever considered this...
Today my son said to me, "Mommy, I had the worst dream ever."
"What did you dream about?" I asked.
"Well, at first we were supposed to go to a party. It was a family party. That was ok because it was a family party with our family. But when we got there it wasn't a family party."
He started shaking so I said, "It's ok. It was just a dream. If someone got hurt it wasn't real."
He looked at me and sighed in the most exasperated way and then he continued, "No one got hurt. It wasn't a family party. There were like a hundred people there!"
Ok, did you just laugh? Yes, the first instinct is to laugh, but I did not laugh. Instead I just gave him a long hug. For my son, this is truly the WORST DREAM EVER.
That was it. There was no more to it. There were a hundred people there and that was the nightmare.
Autism... Aspergers... Anxiety... He lives it every day, every night, all year long.
