At 4:15 am Chick woke up crying. I went to see what the problem was, and here is our conversation.
Mama: What happened? What's the matter?
Chick: Something was eating me!
Mama: Eating you?! Oh no! What was it? A monster?
Mama: An animal?
Chick: Yes, it was a SNAIL.
(At this point I couldn't help but laugh a little...of all the things to have a nightmare about!)
Mama: Do you know that snails are very, very slow?
Mama: So having a snail eat you would take a REALLY long time!
Anyhow, she was calmed down & happy. She wanted to go to my bed so she could have happy dreams, but we sang the "ABC" song instead (her choice) and she went back to bed in her own bed.
I was left to wonder...what would a nightmare of a snail eating me be like?!
