Alfred here. Yeah… it’s me the KING. I know I don’t look so hot today. You can see it in my picture. That’s because I had nightmares all last night. For those of you who have been reading my blogs know that I have anger management and separation anxeity issues. But, since my Moms and I have been settled here in rural Eastern North Carolina I’ve gotten a hold over my anger issues – for the most part that is.
Maybe I’m channelling all my issues into my dreams now because I’ve been havin’ some bad nightmares lately. Last night I woke up my Moms twice.
“Alfred! Alfred!” My Moms said alarmed, “What’s wrong, Little Man?! You were crying out so loud in your sleep you woke me up. ” Moms gently rubbed me awake so I could get my act together.
“It’s going to be okay, Little Man,” my Moms cooed to me. “Just relax and go back to sleep.”
And, Guys, I did. I went back to sleep, comforted knowing that my Moms was next to me. My Moms hasn’t left me alone for almost 3 weeks now. I know you’re probably thinkin’ that’s not much. But, it’s a long time for her! You know she’s always going to visit GrandMoms in Michigan or off to some new location to see friends. I guess her leaving me alone stresses me out or something. Later on in the night, my Moms woke me up again.
“Alfred! Alfred!” my Moms cried. “What’s wrong, Man? You were shaking so hard in your sleep you rocked the bed and woke me up again. It’s going to be okay, Little Man. Don’t worry. Your Moms is right here and I’m not going anywhere.”
And, Guys, I was able to relax and go back to sleep, calmed by my Moms’ soothing voice and assured in the knowledge that she was right next to me.
Guys, I hope you have someone to soothe you and calm you down when you have a bad dream. Everyone needs someone to make all the bad things go away.
