On Dreams

on March 28, 2011

Hello everybody. Happy Monday, and thanks for all the comments on my Ph.D. post over the weekend.  I’m still mulling a decision but those comments definitely were thought-provoking and helped.

So lately I’ve been having these dreams, and they all have a common theme- baby! Almost all of my dreams feature a little baby boy, our little baby boy.  And in these dreams, C and I are just living our lives, doing everyday things… but one of us will have the baby in a carrier on our back. Or we’ll have to remember to be quiet while doing household chores so as not to wake baby.  Or in one dream we had the baby with us at the beach, and he kept trying to eat sand. Really common dreams, nothing stand out about them at all… except the baby.  Oh, if only.

I’d like to think that this is some vision of the future, some portent of what’s to come.  And I’m sure we will have a baby sometime here in the nearish future, and maybe he will be the boy I’m imagining.  In actuality, though, for now… I’m pretty sure it’s just my body showing me what I want to see, taking my metaphorical dreams and manifesting them as literal ones.  And I’m okay with that.  If I can’t have an actual baby yet, at least I can dream about one, right?
