Baby mama drama

I just woke up and there was a dream so fresh in my mind that I had to share it with you.

I had a baby, and like 10 minutes after getting home from the hospital, the kid picked up a piece of hot yellow pepper from the couch and ate it (because, you know, a one-day-old baby could TOTALLY do that and plus, my couch cushions are LADEN with hot peppers). Of course, it got really sick almost immediately--shaking and crying and sweating and puking--and I had to rush it back to the hospital. The doctors were all like, "Wow. We've never had a new mom manage to fuck it up that quickly."

So then I go home, and on the way home we stopped at the store. Well, somehow the baby fell out of the cart (probably because--and I remember this clearly--I had this one-day-old-kid SITTING UP in that seat in the front) and of course, it bumped its little head and I had to go BACK to the hospital. The same doctors were there (because it was like half an hour later), and they looked at me and went, "SERIOUSLY?!"

And I started crying and said, "Well, what the hell do *I* know about being a mom?!"

And then I woke up.

lol! That's Totally ME!!! I don't know what the hell I'm doing!

LOLOLOLOL! Jen, I don't know WHY you dreamt that, but it's hilarious! I loved the "plus, my couch cushions are LADEN with hot peppers" hahahahahahahaha!

I just had a thought... maybe there's a(nother) pregnancy in the family! Maybe one of the sisters will make a big announcement at Thanksgiving ;-) Or, I'm waiting for Mimi to make the announcement any time, too. She's had major baby-brain the last couple times I saw her! Won't you just die if this a psychic vision?

And Anna, it's totally NOT you! You're gonna be a great mommy! Where's the pictures, btw??

Anna, as long as you don't feed your one day old baby hot peppers or sit it up in the shopping cart, I'm sure you'll do just fine.

And seriously, pictures, dude.

According to Dream Moods Dictionary:

To see a baby in your dream, signifies innocence, warmth and new beginnings. Babies symbolize something in your own inner nature that is pure, vulnerable, helpless and/or uncorrupted. If you find a baby in your dream, then it suggests that you have acknowledged your hidden potential. If you dream that you forgot you had a baby, then it suggests that you are trying hide your own vulnerabilities; You do not want to let others know of your weaknesses.


To dream of a crying baby (cuz it sure was crying after eating that hot pepper and falling out of the cart, LOLOL), indicates that a part of yourself that is deprived of attention and needs some nurturing. Alternatively, it represents your unfulfilled goals and a sense of lacking in your life. If you dream that a baby is neglected, then it suggests that you are not paying enough attention to yourself. You are not utilizing your full potential.

that's totally what happens when you have a baby with your son from a past your dreams...and...stuff.

Renee said...

I'm giving you the raised-eyebrow "mmm-hmmm" look right now, Jen. Pretty interesting, to say the least.

Jen said...

sparky: I'll have you know that there was no baby daddy in the dream, thank you very much. So it coulda been ANYbody.

Renee: I knew you'd say that. LOL

Jen said...

LOL. It just occured to me that stating that my baby daddy "coulda been anybody" makes me sound like a bit of a Dream Whore.

But you know what I mean.

anna said...

LOL Jen!!! Thanks for the tips!

Interesting dream meanings - what do you think?

And then just LOL at all of Sparky, Renee & Jen's following comments. Man, y'all are HI-larious!

Renee said...

"Dream Whore" LOLOLOLOLOL.

If the shoe fits...

Nik said...

LMFAO-- as if the dream itself wasn't frickin hilarious, the comments that have been left had me rolling.
