    A Lot Lately....

    Lately I've been having nightmares. The kind where you wake up screaming bloody murder. There's always this one boy, or wolf. I feel like I know them. The boy always wears a red cloak that's blood red. But he's got dark hair and really deep blue eyes. Its like your looking into a...

    I don't have a lot of nightmares. But on Christmas Eve morning I had a really horrible one. My greatest fear is a man from my past coming to get me like he said he would, and doing all the things he said he would do to me. It seems unlikely now, since he is in jail. But the...

    Why?

    Why is it that once you have kids most of your nightmares seem to revolve around them?  I swear this is the reason that parents wake in the middle of the night to check and see if babies are still breathing. Mine is always that I can't find my eldest son, and I finally find...
