I Need to Go to the Swimming Pool!

This morning at 5:30am, Marco woke up yelling "I need to go to the swimming pool!" He yelled this about 5 times before coming into our room and telling me directly to my face. I picked him up and put him in our bed and he just kept saying it. And then he said something about going in the water and where all the other kids were and needing to go to school. Part of me was marveling at the remarkable completeness of the sentence. And another part of me was wondering what kind of dreams is this kid having? Sounds like fun!

He eventually settled down and went back to sleep, but it really makes me wonder how much he understands what dreams are versus reality and how you explain that to a kid at 5:30am.
