Aedan tells me this morning
"Mom, I had a dream and it was not a nice one"
Me: "oh really? What was it about?"
Aedan: " all of us were in it and there was a monster and it killed Daddy."
me: "Oh boy I'm sorry Monk. You know monsters aren't real and it was just a bad dream" right?
Me: "When did you have that dream?"
Aedan: "right now when I woke up"
Me: "Why didn't you come get me"
Aedan: "Cause I can handle it"
Little does he know there are real monsters out there. They just don't look all green and furry with fangs. They look like everyone else.
