Dream Baby

I generally don’t remember my dreams, but I had a strange one this morning. I dreamt that I had a baby girl rather unexpectedly. I knew I wasn’t expecting to have a baby because my desk was a mess at work. My desk is usually a mess at work, but I’m hoping I’ll clean it off before maternity leave, if I ever get to go on maternity leave. Also we had NO baby stuff in the house. So I sent my husband to Target to buy some baby stuff. Of course he came back with all the wrong stuff and I didn’t even have a place for the baby to sleep. Hubby told me to put her down to sleep in some blankets, but I told him that didn’t seem such a good idea as she would probably suffocate.

The strange thing about this baby is that even though she was newly born she seemed about the size of a one year old. Also, in my dream I was constantly changing the baby’s diaper and it was always poopy, really messy poopy. I just kept wiping this baby’s bottom, but I couldn’t get it clean. The really weird thing was that the baby seemed to have a lot of attitude about me changing these poopy diapers. Like she was saying, “Yeah lady…you clean up that poop. I’m going to poop more in a minute and it will be even messier.”

So does my subconscious feel unprepared for motherhood? Or am I subconsciously concerned that motherhood won’t be all I think it will be? Do I have a poop fetish? Am I concerned about having a baby with attitude? What do you think?

All of these are excellent questions. Excellent.

I don't have an answer!! I generally remember all of my (crazy) dreams, but I never know what they mean.

I should buy a book and see if I can analyze them.

Maybe it's..."you'll get there eventually, but it's been a shitty ride?"

Tara said...

haha - I like what Mary says! I think it just means you have a stressed out brain and a heart that wants a baby :)

That is an interesting dream! I like what Mary said too. Maybe that means you are going to breast feed- they tend to poop a lot! :)

Or maybe you are going to get pregnant!

Seriously when I got pregnant w/Bam-Bam there was a baby on our bed and I knew shew as mine, but didn't know her name--I had to ask Barney (in the dream).

Good luck! I hope this just means you are going to have a healthy baby who poops a lot :)

I also like what Mary said, lol.

I just found your blog and it's great, just wanted to let you know (Like you already didn't know that!)

I dont know the answer to any of those questions. What I do know is,
"Do I have a poop fetish?"
Cracked me up. A lot.

Erica said...

I'm agreeing with Mary too. Or maybe you fear that more and more shit will fall into your lap? Who knows...

Michelle said...

Maybe it means when you don't expect to get pregnant you will!

It's probably the poop fetish...
But, possibly, it's just that you know that you have a lot of work ahead of you. And hopefully, it's prophetic that there will be a baby at the end of the line. Good luck...
