WHO AM I?
>>married 35 year old
>>mother of two
I love having a family but I also need a space for me...hence the site
I love photography, painting and pretty much anything using the left-side of the brain
I'm not enjoying my chosen profession right now so I'm in search of my calling. I've attended a 'visualizing' workshop to help figure out what it is that I want to be when I grow up
So far I've got...nothing
Maybe this site will provide some inspiration.

Woman Canon Rebel
So this post has nothing to do with this picture...I just liked it.
My oldest (5 years old) is having nightmares....and I don't know what to do about it.
She has a beautiful room, filled with toys and books...and she can't seem to sleep in it. She's taken to getting up and either a) waking us up in the middle of the night to help her move to the spare bedroom or; b) getting up and moving herself without a word to us. Of course we like option b) better but I'd prefer option c)...stay in her own room.
We've allowed her to keep moving into the spare bedroom mostly because we don't know what to do about the nightmares. They're pretty scary stuff too...like once she said that she dreamt her palm was sliced by a knife over and over and that it was dripping blood....yeah I know...I don't know where she's getting it. We don't let her watch scary movies and she doesn't read overly scary books.
So I ask you o' intelligent internet...what do I do about this. I can't seem to be able to help her and it bothers me that she doesn't seem to fill safe in her own room. Poor thing.

There are many foods that increase cholesterol levels and you should avoid them as most of them are also bad for your figure. For example, butter and similar fatty products we use for cooking. These products have a high concentration on fat that together with other fat we take during the day can increase the total fat levels very much,531308,http://jensplace.blogdrive.com/archive/239.html

People deserve very good life time and mortgage loans or sba loan would make it much better. Just because people's freedom is grounded on money state. ,327640,http://jensplace.blogdrive.com/archive/239.html

Maybe you should start her night in the spare room and see if she has nightmares there. If she does have nightmares then you transfer her to her room and maybe she wil see it as a peaceful place. My one daughter was terrified of the pretty little lions on her wallpaper. We could not understand her when she would scream "Waaa" and point to the wall. We realized later she was saying "Roar"

I saw the attached article yesterday and although not the same problem exactly there are similarities and you may find it useful.

Nightmares are a source of missed sleep. My children seem to have them every time they have some sort of sugary thing within 1-2 hours before bed. My children will "wake up" screaming and unconsolable, and we have to wait. We don't let them have sugar at night and this seems to work.
With my youngest, she gets scared sometimes. She has angels in her room to "protect her". She has one over the door ( a ceramic cherub) and she has a flying angle on her wall and of course a dream catcher. When she is scared, I remind her of where we are and who else is in her room keeping her safe. It seems to work.
Another thing you can do is watch the time that this is happening. Usually nightmares happen within 2-3 hours of sleeping...so, the experts say to go and wake the child within 1-11/2 hours after they have fallen asleep and that will break the pattern. don't completely wake her, but jostle her so that she looks at you, feels secure and then goes back to sleep.
All of these things have worked for us for the most part.
