NightmarePosted: July 11, 2012
A few nights ago Cooper woke up crying. I (Chris) went to check on him and asked him what was wrong. In between his mumbling and confusion from being half asleep, Cooper told me that he had a bad dream. Here’s the rest of our dialog:
Chris: You’re ok buddy. Daddy’s here. What happened in your dream?
Cooper: The dinosaurs were chasing me and they were going to eat me!
Chris: It’s okay. There not going to eat you and dreams aren’t real. What kind of dinosaurs were they?
Cooper: It was a stegosaurus and a triceratops
Chris: Oh. Well Cooper, they’re not going to eat you because they are herbivores. They don’t eat meat or people, they eat leaves and plants…
Then, without skipping a beat, Cooper responded: But I was wearing a leaf costume! They thought I was leaves and they were going to eat me!
