Earlier today, Parker was thinking about bad dreams and asked me what I'm scared of. And I said cancer, and getting sick and stuff. He was very concerned and asked what is cancer. I just said it's a bad sickness you don't always get better from. He went on to assure me that if he hears me having a bad dream, he'll come wake me up.
Then tonight as he's getting ready for bed, he says, "Try not to have bad dreams tonight. If you do, I'll come wake you up. Think about happy things! Don't think about getting sick, or about being dead. DON'T think about that. Think about...... riding unicorns!! And..... (trying to think about what I might like) girl stuff. Think about flying and doing whatever you want, and not having to take potty breaks!" he finished up, eyes sparkling.
What a lovely little heart he has. ♥
