Domingo

I spent most of yesterday in a funk.

I'm not sure what caused it exactly.  It could have been the fact that it was New Year's Day and I kind of hate New Years.  Or it could be that I had 4 days off and knew I would be going back to work the next day.  But honestly, I blame the weird dream I had the night before.

I dreamt I had had the baby, only he was born like 9 months old and Hispanic.  Phil had left (probably because I had had a Hispanic baby) and I was back living with my parents, in my old room.  I had named my Hispanic 9-month old "Domingo" (I have no idea where that came from) and was doing an awful job mothering him.  I had only fed him twice in one day and had let him slowly slip from my lap and fall on the floor.

I woke up very confused and actually had to convince myself that there was NO POSSIBLE WAY any part of that dream could be real.  There was NO CHANCE I could be having a Hispanic baby.  NO WAY it would be born 9 months old.  And ABSOLUTELY NO POSSIBILITY we would be naming him Domingo.  Phil also reassured me when I woke him up to tell him my dream that he wouldn't be leaving us.

Plus I slept like absolute garbage when I wasn't dreaming about Baby Domingo.

I was finally able to shake the bad feeling at about 8 o'clock at night.  About an hour before I would be heading to bed.  Poor Phil.

The good news is that I woke up today feeling much better.  The funk was gone and I'm feeling optimistic and energized.  And that's a much better way to head to work than in a funk.

But I'm not sure which dream was weirder, this one or the one with the flexing Asians?  This is a weird contest.

  1. This is kind of funny. I bet it is all of the change of hormones and your body adapting to the pregnancy. I have woken up from a dream before in a really weird funk because the dream just feels SO real. Hopefully your baby isn't a little Hispanic boy. If it is a little Hispanic girl, you could always go with DomingA :)

  2. Haha, that's pretty funny! In all of my baby dreams the baby seems to be way older too, but apparently just born. So weird!

  3. Waking up in a panic is no way to start the day. I'm a big fan of being able to go back to sleep and get a dream re-do when I wake up like that. If all else fails, hit up Maury for a paternity test ;)
