After he wakes up this morning, I ask my son, “Did you have any good dreams last night?”
He tells me, “No, I don’t think so. I think it was just tan.”
So, thinking this dream might be some deep and complicated insight into his brain wiring, I ask, “Really? Do you see tan while you sleep?”
Without pause, he says, “You know, the color of our eyelids. It’s tan. When I close my eyes that’s what I see.”
I had to laugh because it was a good mom moment and it helped me to remember not everything is deep or complicated. Some things are simple if you let them be :).
