Nightmares

All was quiet, all was right,
then a scream came in the night.

Nightmares nightmares make me run

Sleepy Momma, restless child,
what could make her act so wild?
Scary things come in her sleep
that's what makes her wail and weep.

Toys all over, toddler wiggling,
for me her bed simply is not comfy.
I fall asleep, backache begins.

So back to my bed, close my eyes,
then more dreams invade her sleep
and I hear screaming once again.

Nightmares, nightmares make me run.

Shush and sing and cuddle close,
try to keep bad dreams away.
Just when I think they are all gone,
she starts moaning once again.

Back to my bed one more time,
with the toddler almost asleep,
will sleep come back for me tonight?

Nightmares, nightmares are not fun.

Ooo. This is my life. What is making my poor sweet child, she's almost five now, so upset in the night? And the insistence of mommy to just keep trying to get back in bed with her husband, which leads to lots of night traveling. I know it all well. I have no answers, only commiseration.
