Katie had her first sleepover Wednesday night. My niece Paige had no school on Thursday and I was helping my sister out by keeping Paige here for the day. I swear Katie could not stop smiling the entire time she was here. When we got home I put tv on for the girls while I fed and put Timmy to bed. When I came down to check on them, they were practically on top of each other cuddling.
The next night, I was tucking Katie into bed and doing my "OK, we're going to STAY in bed tonight speech." Turns out, she had woken up at 3:30 the night before due to a scary dream. There was a MONSTER in her dream. Here's the jist of the rest of the conversation:
Me: Was the monster chasing you?
Katie: No....it was a cookie.
Me: The monster was a cookie? What did it look like?
Katie: It was a round cookie. It was white.
Me: Did it have arms or legs or eyes or a mouth?
Katie: It had legs and eyes, and nose, and mouth. No arms.
Me: Was it wearing any clothes?
Katie: YEAH! It had a baseball hat and a shirt.
Me: That sounds really scary. You know, you don't have to be scared tonight, because now that you told mommy about him if you dream about him you can just remember mommy knows about him and I can come help you in your dream. So he won't be able to hurt you or scare you tonight.
Katie: No, he not hurt me, mommy. He played with me. He play very nicely.
Me: Oh, ok. Why were you scared then? Was it because you woke up and realized that a talking cookie was so silly.
