To help Mini sleep I often 'give him a dream'; something nice to think about before he goes to sleep. And as bedtimes have become difficult recently, I've been giving him more and more dreams - about lands of lollipops, walks amongst the stars and playing with pixies!

Tonight as I lay in bed cuddling him to relax and soothe him, Mini asked for a dream. So he has drifted off to sleep thinking about the strangest zoo in the land with tiny pink elephants, yellow spotty tigers, bouncy monkeys with beach ball tummies and a giraffe with a head so tall it is in the clouds!

Are my own dreams so full of fantasy? I hope not.

I dream that 2013 is going to be different. I dream that we'll all learn more about each other. I dream that we'll talk more and shout less. I dream that we'll make progress. I dream that we'll be happier.

I hope my dreams come true. And I hope yours do too.


  1. I love the idea of giving your children dreams, it's a beautiful thing to do. I hope that 2013 is calmer and happier for all of you. x

    1. Thanks Sarah - hope 2013 is good for you all too x

  2. I give Katie dreams ss well. We discuss what she's going to dream about each night. I very much hope your dreams come true too Vicki Xx

  3. Thanks Gem. It's a lovely thing to do (except sometimes Mini gets cross in the morning if he dreamt about something else!). Happy New Year x

  4. What a sweet way to usher them into the Land of Nod. Wishing you a happy, healthy, and prosperous New Year! Found you through Bloggy Moms.

  5. This is such a sweet idea. Something my little one will love once he is in his own room and bed. And that zoo, sounds like somewhere I'd like to visit :) Following from the January Blog Hop.
