weird.

I had this dream last night that Asher was already here. But sometimes he was a baby, and sometimes he was a babyDOLL. Brian and I were on a subway (we must have been going to visit Lane and Mary?) and I look down and I'm holding the doll, not the kid. So, of course, I become concerned. I go back to the house, where another couple is living with us (this couple from church, that I only vaguely know). They hand me Asher, only he has turned into a cup of EVERYONE'S FAVORITE COFFEE (complete with the white cup and green logo, so as not to be confused with artificial coffee). Which is of great concern to me, of course. I start asking, "How do I turn him back into a boy?" But nobody knew. I tried pouring him into a diaper, and that didn't work. So I'm walking around with a cup of coffee that used to be my baby, trying to figure out what to do. As I woke up - I do not lie when I say this - I heard Pinocchio's voice saying, "I'm a real boy!"

Wow. That was a weird dream.

In unrelated news, Emily and Baby Ledford came into the coffee shop today to see me. I didn't realize she was coming to Alabama, so I was supersurprised to see her walking into my little store. Seeing someone that thin, who has a 7-month-old child, gives me hope that I may shrink back to my normal size one day.

I love that dream. It is so you.

I am sitting here feleing all teary and sad. I wanted to see you this weekend. David has green snot and a cough. I have PMS, so being here alone with the kids is not so great. I wanted Stephanie time. Sigh...

WHOA! that's awesome...I love weird dreams like that. I think it is clear that maybe you still have some unresolved overwhelmingness that you blogged about not too long ago...it's ok to vent in your dreams.

I think its pretty funny you tried to pour him in to a diaper, and even better that pinoccio ended your dream! :) I am also SUPER jealous you got to see Baby Bean today (as well as MamaBean)

I have those kinds of dreams. You must be working too much. I have crazy dreams about waiting tables that are ridiculous when I work too much.

You SHOULD bring baby asher to the subway in Boston asap.
Lane's mom is moving to Prattville soon. We're hoping to be coming through around Christmas so it would work out pretty good for us if you could go ahead and have that little cup of coffee a week or so early so you are all settled in and ready for visitors before we come. See what you can do about that.

I agree with mary as I will be in Selma the whole week of Christmas and would love to see the Davis' and little Asher.
