Dear Blogger World,
First of all, let me just say that I am using my precious internet quota time at work to tell you all about this crazy dream of mine that I had last night. And let me begin by saying that, well, babycenter.com did warn me that I might have dreams about taking care of baby animals, but I sure didn't think it was actually going to happen!!
So I had a dream last night. Just like I do every other night. But this night, I dreamt that I had my baby - about 3 months early. And as it probably should be, the baby was very tiny and skinny. However, for some unknown reason, I had to be away from home for a few days and didn't even get to see my baby until day 3, probably.
Being the mother, I apparently knew what I had to do to take care of my baby, so I walk into the bedroom and there is my baby sleeping in the crib. However, she's starting to fuss (that's what it was in my dream - a girl) and of course, I just know that it's because she is hungry. So I take her weak, frail body out of the crib and try to get her to latch on. She doesn't even try to suck, but I don't know that. Apparently I am holding her and have a blanket or a shirt over her (because she is so tiny) and I'm thinking I am nursing her but this whole time, she is just sleeping against my chest!
This continued on for a little while, all the while with me getting frustrated that my baby wasn't latching on and nursing. I really wanted to do this! P.S. Nursing is something that I look forward to but am kind of nervous about because I have done a bit of reading and I just want to make sure I do it, right, you know?
Well anyway, turns out my baby was a kitten. That's why it wasn't latching onto me.
