That's when he said he had a nightmare. Oh, poor guy. No fun to have nightmares!
Then I asked him what it was about. He said there were animals at the zoo and people were throwing trash into their cages. He started to cry at that point. Such a sweet boy! He truly loves animals!
He says he wants to be a zoo keeper when he grows up and I wonder if he really will :).
One Sunday after quiet time this is what Talmage had constructed upstairs.
The animals are arranged by families (mostly) with their babies (some are carrying them)! The Lincoln logs are trees, in case you didn't know.
I told him to try to dream about helping the animals and taking care of them instead. I'm not sure it worked since he still didn't sleep well after that. I guess out of all the nightmares to have at least it wasn't too scary!
I love the innocence of children!
