Miaomiao slept late last night. And i thought she would wake up late today. But this morning she suddenly crys and yells “put it there~don’t get it~put it there~don’t get it~” at a quarter past six, though she is still sleeping on bed.

I answer her from time to time “no i don’t get~i have put it there~it’s there~”, but her eyes are still closed, tears run from her eyes. She continues to cry “no it’s not there~put it there~don’t get it~put it there~” From her crying words i remind once when we were shopping, i have choosen a dress for her but she didn’t like it. At that time she also cried out such words “put it there~don’t get it~put it there~i don’t like it~” So i think this time she must have made a dream and reminded that scene in her dream and cried out. Actually she used to make such kind of dreams and cried out at night sevral times in last few months. But the crying only lasted a little while and she returned calm again. This time it seems last a bit longer. Her crying and yelling continues. Her grandma comes into our room after hearing her continuous cry. She wants to transfer Miaomiao’s attention and speaks to her, but she doesn’t listen and crys again and again. “put it there~don’t get it~ put it there~you have got it~put it there” There is no use to answer her words and tell her something. At last i hold her in my arms and pat her gently on her back. She gradually calms down and wakes up.
From her dream, i think it maybe hurt her more than we knew to do something for a child but without her agreement. She feels angry and hurt but no one notices or takes her opinion. She may feel better later. But the feeling of hurt is always exist from that time, it usually hides, but turns out in some other ways sometimes suddenly, such as dream.
Respect a child, and less hurt. I think i still have a far way to go.
