Sandy The Warrior Squirrel

Since the onslaught that is the first trimester is now officially over, I find myself with one or two vomit-free days per week, and what better way to spend those days than to catalog ANOTHER symptom of this wonderful thing called pregnancy? You know what I mean...I mean these completely psychotic, vaguely disturbing, extremely vivid dreams I have been having.

Not only are the baby related ones, like the recurring one where I give birth to triplets (2 girls, 1 boy) and not only do I have no idea what to do with them, I am also completely unable to breastfeed. Or rather, my dream triplets hate my boobs. Every time I try to nurse one (s)he starts screaming and refuses to stop until my ta-tas are covered.

There are also the other, stranger dreams, such as the one I had the other night about Matt and I in a grocery store, picking up some necessities with our good friend Sandy. Sandy just so happened to be a large squirrel, carrying two samurai swords. That's right folks, it was Sandy The Warrior Squirrel. When I recounted this dream to my eight year old nephew (i.e. the only one who will still listen to me ramble about my dreams) he immediately lit up and said "SPONGEBOB!" And proceeded to explain to me that in SpongeBob (is that one word? two? hyphenated?) there is a squirrel names Sandy. I don't know if she has Samurai swords or how she breathes underwater for that matter.

Hang on...I need Google.

Oh! She has a bubble! Although I must say, she looks nothing like the Sandy of my dream. But thanks to the wonder of Google, look at what I found...

Apparently I am not the only pregnant woman dreaming of warrior squirrels! That picture is much closer, not quite there, but closer.

Do you have strange dreams? What is the weirdest dream you have ever had??


  1. That last picture is hilarious!

  2. You have inspired me to (finally) write about my preggo 1st trimester dreams in a post. Look for it this week.

    Too long and unfortunately violent to write here.

    Cute how your nephew is trying to help.

  3. My comment made my dreams sound horrible! There is still humor in my dreams.... don't worry! Don't want to scare you off.

  4. Kinda scary that you actually found a samuri squirrel on Google!

    My dreams are pretty much run of the mill type dreams. Every once in awhile I may kill some people (bad people of course) but other than that I'm normal! ;o)

  5. kinda scary cute... My kids will surely scream to see this image..

  6. Love the warrior squirrel.

    I get weird dreams all the time - and I'm not pregnant. ;-)

  7. Don't worry...in a few years you too will know all of the cartoon characters. I thought "spongebob" too as soon as I read the title.

    Anyway, the strangest dream I've ever had, and most disturbing by the way, was dreaming that all my teeth had fallen out. You can read about it here:

  8. way back in the day "1974" we used back pack carriers to carry the kids when we went anywhere that we would be walking. My worst dream was my husband leaned over to look down in the alligator pit and our newborn son fell into the pit. I was still in my first trimester with our first child with this dream. ugh....

  9. I had a dream while pregnant that I gave birth to a monkey (a very cute monkey by the way) and when she was born the nurse had me nurse her...yes I dreamt that I nursed a monkey.

    I was sorta nervous to nurse and in my dream it was nice and I loved my baby even though she was a monkey lol.

    When I woke up, I figured nursing would be ok. :) I still call my daughter Monkey!!
