You know when you hear those stories about kids seeing ghosts and shit? The other day we were in the hallway and Olive screamed "BEARS!!!!" and I swear to you for a split second I was like holy shit there is a bear in the house. Just the way she said it, it was so real and the look on her face was like I'd imagine if someone saw a bear in their house. She has this weird fear of bears and she told me they were in the hallway. I know it sounds insane and totally crazy but what if kids just have a wild imagination and can see stuff that we can't.
I still remember to this day a dream I had or at least I think it was a dream. I was so young but it felt so real that till this day I can still remember the feeling. As I've gotten older I have forgotten details of the dream. I'm guessing this was when I was around 4 or 5 ish. It was my stuffed animals and they were talking. I remember looking into my closet at some part of the dream and it is so clear even now when I think about it. I remember the feeling of being scared and I think I was trying to tell my mom about it in my dream. There was a ton more to it but like I said over the years its faded but the feeling of the dream always remains. What the dream was isn't important but the fact that 30 years later I can still remember the feeling is kinda insane. There are actually a good handful of dreams that I had as a kid that I can still remember. I think its just so amazing how our memory works and what we retain and hold on to. Totally off the subject of imaginary friends but just crazy how kid brains work. Keeping it nice and weird around here.
