A School Dream...ALREADY!

It really wasn't a bad dream, but it was still a dream about school. I think it was triggered by talking to a teacher I share a room with. We've talked several times in the last few days, as the "drama" has already begun, sigh. We go back on Monday, August 18, but some teachers have been working in their rooms already.

So I was dreaming that I had to go to our central office and look up information in a filing cabinet in our superintendent's office. I was not happy because we did not have to be there yet, but for some reason I had to go do this.

This is where I should add that in the past I've always gone in about 3-4 times a week for the few weeks before school actually starts that we are permitted in the building. Yes, even though the custodians are there all summer long, teachers are not permitted to come in until about 2-3 weeks before school begins. I've actually enjoyed going in's given me time to get organized.

Okay, so in this dream, I was NOT happy about being there and I had a 7 month old son. No one was available to watch him for me, so I had to bring him with me. Keep in mind, our sons are 17 and 21, so it's been a L O N G time since I've had a little boy around (except for our great nephew!).

I had my son in one of those baby carriers that strap onto your chest, and he was soooooooo good! He was happy, giggling, and smiling the entire time I was there. Everyone was fussing over him, telling me how good he was, how cute he was, etc. I was just thrilled that he was being good so I could get my work done.

As I was looking through the filing cabinet with one hand, I had my other hand on the baby, and was lightly rubbing his tummy. That's when I woke up.

And there was Pepina, lying on my chest, asleep, with a grin on her face, as I was petting her.

She will occasionally get up on my chest when I'm sitting or lying down. She just likes to lie on me for some reason, so apparently she had decided that she wanted to be on me at some point during the night. She used to do this all the time when she was younger, but hasn't done it much lately.

I wonder if this means I'll be able to take her to school with me this year? Hahaha!

I think you should take her to school in a little chest carrier. It would be adorable!

That is so cute! Why not have a class mascot in your room? hehehehe I don't think you could have her in a baby carrier tho. . . and she might not like a cage.
