Fish Dreams

So this morning over the phone my mom tells me how she has been having fish dreams for a while now and she wonders who is next.Let me explain that when a woman in my family dreams about fish, someone ends up pregnant.  It always happens.  My grandmother dreamt when all of my aunts were pregnant and knew before they did.  No joke.  And when I was in college my grandmother had a fish dream and my parents went crazy thinking it had to be me because I was the only female "old enough" to get knocked-up.  Well obviously it wasn't me. My younger cousin.  She now has 3 kids.  

So I told my mom that I couldn't guess who it was and wanted to just leave it at that.  But then she started in with.... "you never know, it could work naturally this time for you".  I just said no firmly and changed the subject.   Is my mom just being hopeful.  Or just being a pain in the ass.  Either way I can't stop thinking about it. Why not me?  Is it possible that my mother could be predicting a future pregnancy for me.  I doubt it.  I'm guessing another cousin is pregnant.  I'll let you all know what I find out in a month or so.  

But just maybe my mother's signals are crossed and she is just dreaming of my water dog who pretty much acts like a fish.  
Here is a picture of him dripping wet during our trip to the beach.  And just to give you are taste of summer in San Francisco...... 
Yes that little girl is wearing a wetsuit!And check out the fog.  That's K and Bailey in the distance.  Except they weren't that far away from me.  The fog just made it look that way.

I simply love Bailey...he is so darn cute. I'm hoping and praying those fish dreams are about you, sweetie!

Your dog is so cute. And maybe your mom is right and her dream is about you. I hope so!!

The picture with K and Bailey is beautiful.

That is very interesting about your mom's dreams...I too hope that the dreams are about you.

I have heard of the fish dreaming too. Hoping your mom is right.

I think your Mom is just hopeful (and has a case of the wishful thinkings). It could happen though.

Love the pics, but so gray and gloomy.

What a great and strange history in your family. I'm not superstitious but there is something funny about dreams and their way of affecting real life (or being affected by real life). I hope it is you this time.

And I LOVE your dog. ADORABLE. I was in the bay area last weekend and tried to get my border collie cross to take the plunge into the ocean but she would have none of it. Must be fun to have a real water dog! And messy ;)

My mom does that same thing. I think they just want to be hopeful for us and do not want us to give up hope. I think they do not realize it hurts more then it helps. My friend has been saying the same thing about me and her fish dream. HMMM
