35. Two Weeks Notice
I was babysitting my 4 year old niece. And, we’re watching cartoons when she looks over, dead serous and wonders, “So what’s gonna happen to us when we die in two weeks?”
36. The Girl Without A Face
When my daughter was 4, she woke me up on a dark morning with this gem, “Mom…wake up….mom. There’s a girl in my room who doesn’t have a face.”
The sun wasn’t up and my tired brain was like wtf, I let out a small giggle from my unease. She pulled me by my arm out of bed, and took me to her room to show me the girl. She tells me it’s under her bed, and I’m thinking when did her imagination get so creepy. So I look under her bed, knowing if this was a horror movie this would be a stupid move. And then I see the girl without a face, it wasn’t her imagination… It was one of her dolls, with a pair of doll pants pulled over her face. I laughed, and my daughter was belly laughing so hard because she loves doing silly things. But seriously in those few moments she freaked me out so bad.
37. In Mommy’s Tummy
When my daughter was bout 3 years old she had a sound machine in her room to help her sleep. We typically had it on the babbling brook, or night time crickets sounds. One night I was putting her to bed and turned on the sound machine, she had been playing with it earlier and the sound was left on the sound of a beating heart. After a few minutes of laying there with her in the dark, she looked at me and said “I didn’t like being in mommy’s tummy, it was dark and wet and I don’t want to go back in there, ok?”
38. The Visitor In The Sun Room
The house I bought belonged to a recently deceased couple. The lady was an avid gardener, and they built a beautiful sun room to house their indoor plants. She spent a lot of time in that room, as I hear it.
I’ve found my 4-year-old staring at that room from afar a few times, and when I asked what she was doing, she whispered, “Is that mommy?”
39. “Was She Nice?”
Not a parent, but when I was growing up my family lived in a really old house. Odd things would happen such as doors being cracked open. Never really freaked us out since there were so many of us kids that we figured someone had opened the door and forgot to completely shut it. Anyways, one day while we were having breakfast, my 3 year old sister looks at me and says “Was she nice?” And everyone looked at her like wtf? So she says “the lady that went in your room at night. Was she nice? She told me she saw you sleeping. She goes every night and leaves the door open.” We moved out shortly after.
