    Thanksgiving table, and it’s loud – clinking of silverware, mumblings of “pass the rolls,” “is there more gravy,” “move over Uncle Tim,” and oohs and aahs over the jello mold, etc…when the lull sets in – the one when everyone finally has food and takes their first bite. My youngest says a little loudly (because it’s the lull) “I know now why you scream at night mommy.” The lull becomes stunned silence as my frozen smile and clenched teeth utter, “why, honey?” (knowing that to poo-poo her would only make it worse) She says with a sly grin, “because you have bad dreams, right?” and pops a black olive in her mouth. A collective breath is released as I smile and nod. “More sweet potatoes anyone?”
