mother of all nightmares

I had my first mothering nightmare at around 6:40 this morning. I dreamed that I had trimmed Lias's right arm off with a giant pair of nail clippers. I'd just done it to keep things nice and tidy, and because this other baby (which I was using as a model of how to breastfeed) didn't have a right arm. It started to be a nightmare when I realised the gravity of what I'd done and how he would need a prosthetic arm and everything now. Fortunately I woke up when I started to scream in my dream and I instantly knew it wasn't real.

I still kissed his (not so) little hands when I fed him this morning though.
