It is so strange the pain you feel, as a parent, when your child is hurting/scared/worried. It is almost as if he is still connected to me, physically.
Brody has always been a GREAT sleeper. From day one, he has been in his own room, with the door closed, all the lights off.
Well, in the past 6 months (?) he has started "seeing bad things" at night, which he now knows are bad dreams, or things that we see in our heads when we are sleeping. Well, he has many dreams about dinosaurs and dragons outside his window, and every now and then he will mention the "smiley bus" and how scary and fast and loud it is.
Well, it has gotten so bad, that now the door is open at night and he had a nightlight. Poor thing. It makes me so sick that he has fear now. Just knowing that he will grow up and have pain, and worry, and fear is so sad. I wish I could shelter him from ALL of it FOREVER!
