    "She must have had a bad dream and crawled into bed with my mother."

    A few words I think you may be having trouble with:
    - vast = (in this context) probably, surely
    - naar = (in this context) bad, unpleasant, creepy
    -> 'naar gedroomd' literally means something like 'dreamed unpleasantly'
    - gekropen = kruipen, kroop, gekropen: to crawl

    Does this make the sentence understandable?
