In hiatus I have been, for various reasons and excuses under the sun! There are perhaps a few drafts waiting to be dumped away as I start on a new post this very moment.
While I search for my lost writing mood (rkm is always missing these things too), let me share my conversation with Little D yesterday morning:
Mummy, I had two dreams last night - a good one and a nightmare!
Oh, really? I had a nightmare too, darling. Tell me yours.
Well, the good one was in a desert. I met an aardvark (he was reading a book about an aardvark before going to bed). I said to it, 'Assalamualaikum aardvark!'
That sounds pretty exciting (And we talked a little about the aardvark in his dream
After a while, I asked him, So what about your nightmare?
Ahh...(his expression changed). I dreamt I met a ghost. It chased me and I ran as fast as I could.
Hmm... last night you fell asleep before even finishing the whole du'a of going to bed. You also didn't read your Fatihah, 4 Quls and 21 Bismillah. Next time, you've got to get in bed earlier okay? Then you'll have enough time to read them all and be spared the nightmares.
Yes, I should. I was sooo sleepy last night.
So, mummy, what was your nightmare about?
It was really scary, peanut. Someone wanted to marry me!
And we burst into laughter!
Next time, YOU have to make sure you read your du'as too, Mummy!
