The dream starts out in the superintendent’s office. It seems he is suing three teachers and I am one of those teachers. The other teacher is her:Have you seen this woman on Samantha Who, Jennifer Esposito? Well she was a teacher in my dream. She kept yelling, “Who cares we’ll just go get another job!” I told her I couldn’t because I was just given my daughter! I can’t make ANY changes. I couldn’t concentrate on the meeting because I was just given our daughters passport! I know it isn’t the normal referral, but it was in my dream.
This passport was FULL of information and pictures. I didn’t care what I was being sued for, I just wanted to read the passport. I left the meeting and was suddenly back in my classroom. One big difference, there is now a bed in my classroom. I am lying on the bed and see my child’s picture. I was quite shocked looking at the picture. It is not a pretty picture of the baby. Her nose was all I could focus on. It was a pig nose with one nostril MUCH bigger than the other one. I couldn’t read any of the information because the students in my class were behaving so poorly.
Finally I send two boys to the office, I RARELY send kids to the office but they wouldn’t let me read my passport!!! I lay back on the bed to look at the picture again. The picture seems better, not so scary looking this time. Her one nostril isn’t as big as I thought!
Again the kids start misbehaving, so I have to get up again. I am dragging this kid in his desk all around the room, trying to find him a place where he will be quiet. Remember, I teach high school, so this isn’t a little kid, I am pulling around a huge kid. I am so frustrated because all I want to do is read my baby's passport!
Finally I get back to the passport. It is loaded with all sorts of information about my daughter. As I turn each page I learn more about her, and she becomes more beautiful in each picture. There are pictures of her grandparents and her parents. I can vividly see the pictures. Her grandmother is stunning. There is a map of where she is from. She is from an island up by Mongolia! (I’m telling you, I couldn’t make any of this up if I tried!) I know there are no islands by Mongolia, but they were there in my dream, I saw the map!
I was still reading the passport and then I woke up, but I had such a peaceful, happy feeling. I had such a beautiful little girl. It didn’t matter that I was being sued, that I had an unruly class, or that her referral picture was not the picture of my dreams.
I finally saw my beautiful daughter!
