They’ve all had to do with my anxiety and under-performing worries.
At least these last two dreams have been happier dreams.
Dream #1: GOT7 as a Gift
This actually was about GOT7. But I figure I’d jot it down as it’s a pattern towards my next dream description. My daughter happens be have fallen big time for GOT7 ever since we went to see them in concert this past summer.
In the dream, her godparents (my best friends) asked me for some ideas of what to get her for her birthday. I basically just told them, “I’m sure anything you guys give her she will love!” In other words, I was no help at all! Not much different from real life I’m afraid.
When the birthday arrives, we’re at home throwing a small gathering for family and friends. The door bell rings and one her godparents jump up to get the door, exclaiming, “Ah! Our present for you must be here!”
They open the door and in walks all 7 GOT7 members. Yup, they got GOT7 to come to her birthday party. Her friends and her reacted in the dream as they would in real life – with screams and all.
I don’t know how many of you know about those indoor playgrounds you can rent for 2 hours to hold a birthday party? You see, my friends and I did this for our kids when they were of that toddler to pre-school age. It gave us less of a headache to pay some one else to hose the party and to have to clean up the mess. AND the added bonus was not only did the party have a strict time limit of 2 hours but the parents can hover in the kitchen area, drink coffee, snack and actually have adult conversations while the kids were in eye-sight, playing in the indoor playground. The environment was safe and we rarely noticed them unless we heard either screaming or crying.
Yeah… we were awesome parents! :p
Anyway, that’s what played out in the dream. The parents were in the kitchen socializing, leaving the young teens in the living room, socializing with GOT7.
I know, what am I? Crazy? JACKSON WANG AND JAEBUM WERE IN THE NEXT ROOM AND I WASN’T WITH THEM???
I think it’s because I felt my parental duties take over. Other then greeting them and saying a polite ‘thank you’ when they left, I didn’t want to steal the moment away from my daughter. I do recall BamBam was really tall!
Dream #2: BTS and Dragon Boating
So this dream stems from my past as being a very competitive dragon boat paddler. I even tried out for nationals. And I would KILL to have my athletic body back! Ugh!
Anyway, in this dream, my family and I were at some all-inclusive resort. And you know how those resorts are – they are filled with beach activities and excursions.
As a way to bond and stay active, I signed my daughter and I up for dragon boating. Something she clearly did NOT want to do as all she wanted was to sleep in and be lazy (not at all unlike real life).
But… I had a surprised I had arranged for her. For whatever crazy, unrealistic and strange reason, I knew BTS was going to be vacationing at the same resort. And for whatever crazier reason, I somehow got in contact with BTS and arranged for them to participate in the dragon boating activity so it was just them and us (which is crazy – 7 of them plus 3 of us is only 10 people; a full dragon boat has 20 paddlers and we would need at least 16 to make it easy on all of us).
When the morning came, I dragged my not-so-poor daughter out of bed. She was grumpy as hell. We went to the beach to meet the instructor as she dragged her feet and hung her head low. Once we got there, RM came-up and said good morning. My daughter, slowly raised her head to see who was talking to her. Upon realizing it was Kim Namjoon, leader of BTS, she immediately opened her mouth in shock! She sort of made a whisper-like scream but nothing too loud to draw attention.
RM was a good sport. He laughed and asked her if she could go to the end of the doc and join the maknae line, Taehung, Jimin and Jungkook.
Then I had a moment with just RM where I thanked him for doing this for us and that she’ll live the rest of her life never forgetting this momeng
Meanwhile as we were chatting, I looked down to see her interact with the maknae line. She was all bubbly and laughing with them. Jungkook was teasing her… every time tried to stand up in the boat, he would playfully shove her down. He had that bunny-smile on him. Taehyung who watched for a bit, then stopped Jungkook saying, “Stop it! You might hurt her and she’s precious!” Then Taehyung had a thought and yelled to RM, “She’s cute – can we keep her?” That’s when Jimin did his body-throwing-laugh and said, “She’s not like a stray dog or cat that you can just adopt Taehyung!”
And that’s it. It was a happy ending!
I believe these dreams were possibly trying to calm me down and tell me everything was going to be alright with my daughter. You see, she started grade 9 recently and was coming from a private school to public school setting. She knew no one at her new school. AND we were approaching our weekend away to see BTS’ Love Yourself Tour. I was getting nervous as the concert date approached – worrying about work, about whether or not she would have homework to do, and anything which might go wrong to off-set our plans.
I just didn’t want any problems with the Hamilton-weekend because she had been looking forward to the concert for so long!
Oh yeah – We went to see BTS! TWICE! More on that later…
