What does a 2 year old have nightmares about? I figured it might be monsters, witches, or maybe getting lost. We watched How the Grinch Stole Christmas the other night and I was afraid that might scare her, but she didn't wake up that night. Halloween didn't cause nightmares either.
When Lilypad Princess woke up crying and yelling at 2 am last night I immediately thought it was Eon from Rudolph's Shiny New Year which we watched together last night. That Eon is pretty frightening, I'll admit I was a little nervous I'd have nightmares about him. So when I woke up to her crying and yelling I felt guilty for letting her watch it.
That was until I was awake enough to understand what she was yelling. No, the nightmare wasn't about Eon. She was yelling "Try on my dress! Try on my dress PLEASE!" Apparently my 2 year old has nightmares about not being allowed to put on a dress instead of pants.
I couldn't get her calmed down in her crib, and even nursing and snuggling in the chair couldn't calm her down. So finally I got out one of her sundresses and put it on over her pajamas. Then she quickly snuggled back into bed and went right back to sleep.
We are in big trouble with this one aren't we?
