2 nights in a row I had a dream that I was protecting my child.
The first night my child and I were out of town in a unfamiliar place and bombs kept going off, as we were watching a parade. I would run us inside and find a locker to put her and I in to protect her/us. It happened numerous times.
The 2nd night, we were in a field, and all of the sudden a flood came and I had to swim us across this gross, dirty, deep water field to safety.
After both dreams, after I awake I would make sure my 4 yr old was still breathing. It was like I had anxiety about something bad happening to her.
