DreamBaby

Ok, lately I have had some weird dreams, which actually isn't all that weird for me. So, today's post will be about "DreamBaby", as I call her, and the rest of the dreams we'll get to later this week.

Ever have a recurring dream? This is what DreamBaby is; a recurring dream. I do not know why, but this baby continues to appear in my dreams. I guess I should say "toddler", as that is what she really is. Anyway, the DreamBaby dreams are always a little weird. I do not remember all of them when I wake up, but I remember that she was there. In one dream she wanted to eat some of my McDonald's French Fries. In another dream she was in an orphanage and I couldn't leave her, so I had to take her home with me. In another she wanted my help with something, but I can't remember what. Oh yeah - and in another she was blind.

She is such a cute little girl, that no matter what the dream is about, I can't get her out of my head once I wake up. All of my drawings look like cartoons, but I had to draw her, to get the image out of my head. Here is DreamBaby, to the best of my drawing ability...

So, the question is, is she someone's child I have seen before? Is she a ghost/spirit from the other side? Is she a figment of my imagination because I have thought about babies this year? Is she someone I knew from my childhood?

Go on - gimme your feedback. I'd love to hear your psychoanalysis on this one!

i think you draw a LOT better than me!!

And I dont know what to think. Dreams are different for everyone. A lot of mine (and I know some people think this is weird) are things that happen to one degree or another. I will be in a real life situation and instantly I know exactly what someone is going to say or do because I remember the dream. The car accident I had in March? I had dreamed about it. In my dream I didnt hit the car, but in my dream I remember being in the car...I dont know it's weird. I dont ususally tell people because I dont want to sound crazy, but there it is!

But maybe she is there because you have thought of babies or maybe she was just hungry and needed a mcd french fry...who knows? :)

Boy...I am no dream analyst...maybe because everything in your life is a new rediscovery...not unlike a toddler discovering everything? You got me...but you are a pretty great artist in my book:)

Amy said...

Okay, first of all you are an artist, I imagine this little girl on the cover of a book. You are very talented, the rest I don't know about I don't have very vivid dreams.......

I think she's Maggie. Come get her!

Is it you as a child?

Maybe she is just a child you saw in passing someday that you thought was really cute. I'm not sure how to interpret that!

RhondaLue said...

hmmm...are you physically able to have more children? Perhaps its your future daughter visiting in your dreams. If not, perhaps a future child you will adopt.

Could also be a child angel that may be looking after you...or could just be a whacky dream thing that doesn't need to be psycho analyzed?! Who knows...but w/o divulging sacred experiences, I know dreams can bring us very close to the other side (or them to us). I believe that some dreams are just strange, some medication induced (pain killers offer wild dreams as a side effect), and some really mean something.

Interesting stuff! Oh and by the way, you are a GREAT ARTIST!!!!!!!!!!

My dreams have been influenced by certain things that happened that day.

Or, like Miranda, things will happen and it is as if I could predict it because I had a dream or just a severe case of deja vu.

In Lois Duncan's book, The Third Eye, the girl in the story keeps dreaming if a girl. Turns out to be her unborn daughter.

So, you never know.

Crazy...dreams are so weird. I once had a dream where I gave birth to 7 piglets. Try to figure that one out!! I have been for years...You can always look up what your dreams mean online...have you tried that?

hollibilly said...

I don't know what your dreams mean, but she sure is a cutie!

pinkelephant said...

How interesting. I have a few places I go only in my dreams and I figure that I would go there someday in the future. This girl probably have significant meaning somehow, either your own or yourself you left behind in the past. Traumatic? Maybe when you overcome the certain something, she will not appear anymore? Mysterious...

Is she you as a little girl? Maybe life is really hard right now and your sub-conscious is going back to a time when the most difficult thing you had to think about was making sure your teddy was always with you???

I never dream, or if I do, I never remember them. Boring huh?

i don't think that dreambaby is you as a child. didn't you have really straight hair? and dreambaby doesn't look like an indian. i remember thinking you were an indian because you had dark straight hair and dark eyes and darker skin than me. don't know how you were an indian and i wasn't even though were sisters. i was just a kid, what can i say?
