Breakfast Before Dreams

You know that dream.  The one that sticks with you long after the alarm rings.  The one that startled you out of sleep in the first place.  The one that is still vivid in your mind even as you sit down to begin your day at breakfast.

Well, you better eat quick because you can't speak of that dream until you are finished with breakfast.  At least that's how things went in our house growing up.  Call us superstitious if you'd like, but we didn't discuss details of a dream before we got something in our stomach.  Especially if the dream was scary or bad.  We wouldn't dare chance it coming true.

To be honest, it wasn't until a few months ago I found out this wasn't a general practice in all households across America.  My husband woke one morning and began immediately telling me about his crazy dream.  It took me a second to realize what was happening.  I quickly shushed him and forced a granola bar on him so that I could find out how this story ended...after breakfast!

Do you have any post-breakfast rituals??

Andrea :)

*Linking up with Mia and Vashelle for #WODW.  This week's prompt is the word Breakfast.  Join the fun!


  1. I don't have any breakfast related rituals but I think this is so interesting! I don't eat breakfast but if I had a crazy dream I had to tell someone about I guess I'd have to eat something!

  2. I have never heard of that, Andrea, but I love it! Take on the dreams with a full belly - it's kind of genius. :) What did Christopher think about the forced granola bar? hehehe

  3. I've never heard of this! Kind of fun. Reminds me of The Giver and how they talk about their dreams over breakfast.

  4. How neat. Nope no rituals just need tea as soon as possible.

  5. I know this superstition (and all the other hundreds of superstitions Mexican grandmas teach their grandchildren..haha), but I am too impatient to wait! I like to tell my hubby my dreams in the morning while we lie in bed, cause if I wait any longer I will likely forget it :)
