I believe in living life... and Im teaching that to my kids. When we take walks we stop and smell the flowers, we use the curb as a balance beam, we jump in puddles, we jump over cracks... we play. I joke around with them often and will be very silly. We have even danced in the rain.
I have a neighbor who is a wonderful parent but very straight laced and wouldnt think of doing some of the things I do. That is just her style.
Well every morning I lay in bed with my daughter when I wake her up and ask what she dreamed about... she has very vivid dreams and tells me wonderful stories. Sometimes it gives me GREAT insight to the things that are bothering her at school.
Well the neighbors little girl told my little girl that most people dont dream. that she rarely dreams and that dreams arent important and dont mean a thing.
Do you think my daughter dreams so much be cause I have incourged her imagination since day one? Or do you think that some people simply dream more than others?
btw... all 3 of my kids are WELL above average in their creative writing and i have MANY teachers tell me that they were impressed with my kids' imaginations.

Hmm I don't know, I dream a lot and my 4 year old always tells me about her dreams. We are both pretty creative and have vivid imaginations (I wanted to be an author when I was younger). Maybe people with a lot of imagination and are more creative do remember their dreams more. Either way congrats on having a child that has a great imagination. Oh and that little girl is wrong every one dreams but most people forget their dreams as soon as they wake up.
