7 Dreams A Baby Dreams: Written by a Baby (Guest Post)

Many people wonder if their baby can dream and it seems that babies do in fact dream. What babies may dream about, science can’t really tell parents. However, as a baby, I can tell you what I and my other baby colleagues possibly
dream about:

Talking: I have a dream that I am talking and using 11thgrade level vocabulary and having in depth discussions on the upcoming Presidential Elections. (If you haven’t noticed, I am quite advanced for my age.) I think of myself as a cuter version of Stewie Griffith from the popular television cartoon The Family Guy. Can you imagine the large decrease in crying if I was able to tell you that I do not like your cold hands changing my diaper?

Boobs: The giver of all things good and delicious, Mom’s boobs. Mom, you have no idea how often I dream about these, probably more than Dad. But my only request, could I get some chocolate or strawberry milk on occasion? Just askin’.

Moving Back: I tend to dream about packing my bags and heading back to my old stomping grounds, the womb. It was warm and cozy; plenty of food and no camera flashes. (Now I know how Lady GaGa feels.) Also, maybe I would get more sleep if Mom and Dad didn’t poke their heads over my crib every ten minutes to check up on me, you’re not that sneaky Dad.

Elmo: Ok at first, this bear…err…creature scared me to tears. But oh my, but now how I love him! He is red, fuzzy and makes noises and I dream about laughing and watching Elmo dance all day. Can we keep him Mom? Please, please?!

Food: Yes, I dream about what’s on your plate and stuffing my face on solid foods. You can’t honestly think that eating that cheeseburger in front of me doesn’t drive me crazy, you have no idea how much I love cheese. And would it kill ya’ to share some fries?

Nudist: My dreams are of me free of all clothes, silly socks and blankets. I know you are doing this because you have too, but last time I checked wrapping me up in a strait jacket or as you call it ‘swaddling’, didn’t help a baby’s self-esteem.

Walking: Contrary to popular belief, we are not as needy as we seem. I am capable of walking if you would just put me down…I think. However, I do often dream about getting up from tummy time and walking over to the fridge and grabbing a cold one (milk).No biggie.

So Mom and Dad, I do in fact dream. I dream about lots of things and would appreciate if you didn’t disturb my nap next time. I know, I know, it’s a two way street but come on I am just getting a hang of this sleep thing. Cut me some slack. Happy Dreaming!

  1. Haha that's funny. Especially number 2. DH wanted to know why i was laughing, so I had to tell him. He just rolled his eyes and shook his head.

  2. Babies do say the darndest things (and I do believe these are things they dream about for sure) ~ great post!

  3. So funny! I often think about what my baby must be dreaming or babbling about. My 16 month old just learned to take off his pants and socks and loves to do so, I'm sure he dreams of being a nudist!

  4. This post made me laugh. This a great baby dream list!

  5. Great post! I don't know why, but Elmo is kids favorite thing! It's like they put all of kids favorite things into one stuffed animal!

  6. An ordinary Housewife,
