Erik Quinn: The Heart of a Family: Nightmare

Monday, October 15, 2007


There's nothing like the sound of a child screaming at 3:15 a.m. I found him with his light on, sobbing on the floor and muttering to himself. Brian and I tried to put him back to bed three times, but he would simply crash to the floor again, turn his light on, and sob in a ball.

"Flashing lights. Horns. Wheels. Very fast. Corner."

He's now snoring away in bed with his father.

Makes me want to cry just reading it. I hope he slept better after getting in bed with Daddy.

That just shouldn't happen, sorry. I find myself pulling Avery into my bed more and more. I don't know who is more comforted by it, her or I.

Nancy, So sorry about the nightmares. Especially when they can barely tell you what is wrong. I used to feel so sorry for Caleb. I think after an exciting, loud day, they would always rear their ugly heads. Hope he sleeps better tonight. Heather

Awww, that breaks my heart. So sad that he even DREAMS about noises. I am sending him a great, big hug.

We have been having some bad nights lately too. It seems like just when we get in a routine it gets messed up. Hope tonite is better for both of us and them.

Ugh, that breaks my heart! I have had many nights before like this. Only Daven has yet to tell me what is bothering him. I love that little boy like he was my own.

Poor little guy! Don't you just wonder what goes on in his little mind at times like that? It must be tough as a parent to go through that. ~ jb///
