4. “Oh, don’t worry, mamma. I’m not tryin’ to kill you. I’m just trying to kill the baby.”

“When my younger brother found out my mom was pregnant again, he wasn’t too happy. When people would ask ‘Do you want a little brother or little sister?’ his go to answer was always ‘Zero’.

We had company one day, fawning over my mom’s about to pop belly when he comes into the room pointing a nerf gun at her stomach. My mom playfully calls ‘Oh, no! Don’t shoot me!’ His response? ‘Oh, don’t worry, mamma. I’m not tryin’ to kill you. I’m just trying to kill the baby.’”

5. “Mom, I promise I won’t ever chew on your bones. I promise.”

“My 3-year-old son generally has a happy-go-lucky attitude, so this is pretty odd.

Sometimes when he’s cuddling with his mommy, he’ll say, very seriously, ‘Mom, I promise I won’t ever chew on your bones. I promise.’

Absolutely no idea where he got this.”

6. “If you give me a cupcake I won’t cut your neck.”

Me: No.

Kid: I want a cupcake, please?

7. “I’m not going to be four. I’m doing to die. And you will put me down, down, down in the hole.”

“I have a three-year-old who says some pretty strange stuff….

Last night: ‘Mommy.. the man, the very big man with big yellow eyes is looking at you.’

I look.. nothing. I tell him there is no man and he is make-believe. My son laughs, ‘Oh he is hiding now.’ — 2 minutes later, ‘Oh no Mommy, you made him very mad. Now he says he will come when you are sleeping.’

Few weeks ago he tells me, ‘I’m not going to be four. I’m doing to die. And you will put me down, down, down in the hole.’ I tell him that isn’t true, and who told him that. He gets quiet and goes, ‘The man told me. But I will be scared, so after three night-nights you die too and come with me.’

Sheesh. As if I didn’t have bad dreams already.”

8. “I was talking to the little boy who lives in my closet…He’s dead.”

“When my daughter was around 4 or 5, we lived in a house that had been converted into three separate apartments. We lived in the basement portion. Because of the way they converted the house there was a small recessed area under one of the stairways that formed a small closet/storage space in her room. One night while she was getting ready for bed I overheard her talking to someone in her room. I poked my head in and asked if she was calling for me. Her words—‘No. I was talking to the little boy who lives in my closet…He’s dead.’ Insta-chills.”

10. “I want to peel all your skin off.”

“I was sound asleep, and at around 6am I was woken up by my 4-year-old daughter’s face inches from mine. She looked right into my eyes and whispered, ‘I want to peel all your skin off.’”

11. “Goodbye dad.”

“I was tucking in my two-year-old. He said ‘Goodbye dad.’ I said, ‘No, we say goodnight.’ He said ‘I know. But this time its goodbye.’ Had to check on him a few times to make sure he was still there.”

12. “The man with the snake neck.”

“While changing my daughter in front of the open closet door. She kept looking around me and laughing. I asked her what was so funny. She said, ‘the man.’ To which I replied, ‘what man?’ She then pointed at the closet and said, ‘the man with the snake neck.’ I turn around and nothing was there. I’m afraid to look into the history of my house to see if anyone hung themselves in the closet. At least she wasn’t scared.”

13. “Daddy sleep.”

“Why are you crying?

‘Bad man’

What bad man?

‘There.’ Points behind me at a dark corner of the room.

Lamp on bookshelf next to said darkened corner falls off as soon as I turn to look.

She slept in our bed that night.”

19. “The white wolves are our friends, but not the man who crawls on the floor and stands by my bed.”

“My co-worker’s four-year-old daughter always thought that the rattling of the water pipes in the kitchen cupboards were ‘white wolves’ and the sound always scared her.

One day she was sitting at the kitchen table and she said, ‘Mom. The white wolves aren’t bad… they’re our friends!’

Her mom encouraged the idea by saying, ‘Yes! The white wolves are protecting us. They are our friends.’

Then her daughter added in, ‘They’re our friends, but not the man who crawls on the floor and stands by my bed.’”

20. “Diiiieeeeeee.”

“My toddler went through a phase where she would just constantly say ‘hi’ to things. ‘Hi hi hi hi hi hi’

One day, it came out sounding more like ‘Die die die die die’

So I say to her ‘What’s that you’re saying?’

And she turns to face me and just whispers ‘Diiiieeeeeee…….’”

21. “I’m imagining the waves of blood rushing over me.”

“My niece was sitting on the couch with a weird look on her face. Her mom asked her what she was thinking about, and she said, ‘I’m imagining the waves of blood rushing over me.’

Turned out they had been at a local science museum with an exhibit on the circulatory system. One of the features was a walk among some giant fake blood vessels, and she was remembering that.”

22. “Carson is gone, I am Rick.”

“When my son was little he, maybe 3, he used to do this weird crawl where he would slide his forehead along the floor. That was pretty creepy in itself. Then one night he crawled across the hallway into my room like that and stood up a few inches from my face and made a weird meow sound. He got into bed with me and went to sleep. Another time he was freaking out about a monster in the basement so we went down and saw nothing, of course, and as I turned out the light and headed upstairs and he said ‘He’s right behind us now.’ I might have peed a little. Possibly the creepiest thing he did was one day I scolded him for misbehaving so he hid his head under his blanket. I pretended I couldn’t find him by saying ‘Where is my little Carson?’ He slowly lowered the blanket and with a dead evil stare said, ‘Carson is gone, I am Rick.’ I’m certain he’s possessed. We never knew any Ricks, as far I can remember. Still don’t. Never figured out where he picked up the name.”

23. “We need to get it out. I’ll go get the knife.”

“My noticeably pregnant sister and I were having a conversation at the dining room table. My 4-year-old son was also present and asked my sister if there was a baby in her belly. She affirmed. He, completely straight faced, slid from his chair and headed for the kitchen saying ‘We need to get it out. I’ll go get the knife. ’ I don’t even know…”

24. “He’s behind you now.”

“‘Go back to sleep, there isn’t anything under your bed.’

‘He’s behind you now.’

Still haven’t gotten over that one and shiver at the memory.”

25. “Children. I’d eat children.”

“When my 2.5-year-old and her friend were hanging out, the topic of T-Rex and other dinos came up. I asked her friend:

‘If you were a T-Rex, what would you do for fun?’

He answered: I’d chase herbivores!

I then asked my daughter this question:

‘If you were a T-Rex, what would you eat?’

She got very serious and looked me right in the eyes and said:

‘Children. I’d eat children.’”

26. “I want to go squish those birds and kill them and hang them on our wall.”

“’Mom, can I have your phone to take a picture of the birds in the yard?’

‘Sure.’

‘I want to go squish those birds and kill them and hang them on our wall.’

‘Ethan!’

‘No mom, it’s OK. It’s just for decorating the house.’”

27. “That’s where the dead babies go.”

“A good friend of mine and her husband bought what is considered an ‘old’ house around here. (Western Canada…not many houses over 100 years old). They were renovating the basement one day while I was visiting. I was down there alone with their son, who was barely 2 at the time, and could not yet speak in full sentences. He took my hand and led me over to a brick chimney-like thing thing, with a rusty metal door on it. He looked up and said ‘That’s where the dead babies go.’

I was horrified. Firstly, because, like I said, the kid could barely talk, let alone say something like that. I doubt he even knew what ‘dead’ meant. I’m positive that no one would have told him that, and there were no older kids around that would have said that as a joke. Still creeps me out to this day.”

28. “It’s OK, mommy. The alien is gone.”

“When my oldest was about 3 years old I had a really weird dream where an alien was trying to take my son. I was lying in bed watching this alien take him by the hand and started taking off towards the window. When I went to scream I woke up. Here is the creepy part….I wake up to find my 3-year-old turning on the night light in our room. He turns to look at me and says ‘Oh, it’s OK, mommy. The alien is gone.’ …..I didn’t sleep for the rest of the night.”

29. “One day I want to step on a squirrel and watch its eyes squish out.”

“‘One day I want to step on a squirrel and watch its eyes squish out.’

we stared at each other for a moment (my husband and I) and told him that hurting animals is not OK.”

30. “I want to run the machine that cuts the heads off the chickens.”

“I asked my 3 kids what they wanted to do when they grew up. 10-year-old Jason said, ‘I want to be a teacher.’ 8-year-old Mitzi said, ‘I want to be a writer.’ 6-year-old Nick said, ‘I want to run the machine that cuts the heads off the chickens.’ Alll-righty then.”

31. “Where will Shelia sleep now?”

“My then 2-year-old daughter used to scream in the night, and told my wife and I it was because she was visited by a lady. A few weeks later, she stopped screaming. Off handedly, I asked if the lady had stopped coming. She answered ‘No, she’s just nice now. Her name is Shelia. She sleeps in my bed sometimes.’

A year later, my youngest daughter turned 2 and started having the same screaming fits. Talking to her, she described the same lady named ‘Shelia.’

Skip forward 3 years. We’d never talked with our kids about it, figuring there had to be some active imaginations and sibling story telling involved. Hadn’t come up in at least 2 years. We moved with our three kids, including a 2.5-year-old son. First night in the new house, he asked ‘Where will Shelia sleep now?’”

32. “Murrrrrrrrrderrrrrrrrrr.”

“My 15 month old daughter and I were looking at pictures of animals and I was asking her what sounds they make. She would shout the responses. ‘What does the cow say?’ ‘MOO!’ ‘What does the lion say?’ ‘RAWR!’ ‘What does the polar bear say?’ She looked me right in the eyes and said, softly, ‘murrrrrrrrrderrrrrrrrrr.’

I mean, she’s not wrong. Polar bears are badasses.”

33. “Cedric comes out to play with me when I go to bed.”

“About a week after moving out 2-year-old upstairs into her own room, my wife and I were up there playing with her and she says,

‘Cedric comes out to play with me when I go to bed.’

My wife asked her where he comes from, and she says ‘From over in the corner.’

I had recently walled off a lower section of the room (slanted ceilings) that used to have a creepy 3 foot tall door in it. She pointed right to where the door used to be.”

34. “Why is that baby crying? Why won’t his mom hug him?”

“Walking through a graveyard to ‘visit’ some departed family members, we walked across the grave of a baby boy who died shortly after being born.

There’s a family relationship, so we know for a fact the mother is still alive. My 4-year-old son turned to my wife and said ‘Why is that baby crying? Why won’t his mom hug him?’ Just writing about it makes me shiver.”

35. “Mommy, before you leave, can you take the rocking chair out of my room so the man will leave me alone?”

“I was tucking my three-year-old son into bed the other day. We say the typical slew of I love you’s , then he just stops talking. Extremely atypical. He has maybe shut up one time since his larvae stage. So he puts his head down on his pillow, kind of pointing his face down and rolls his eyes up to look at me. His arm was down by his side, and he just points one little finger towards the rocking chair in his room, without moving his arm. He says, ‘Mommy, before you leave, can you take the rocking chair out of my room so the man will leave me alone?’ I’m pretty sure all the color drained from my face. He then proceeds to tell me that the mans name is Johnny and he’s a bad man and very mean. Johnny doesn’t say anything though because he doesn’t have a mouth. He just sits there and stares at my son… :-/”

36. “Daddy, there is something wrong with my room.”

“‘Daddy, there is something wrong with my room.’

‘Honey, there is nothing wrong with your room.’

‘Yes there is. There is a monster over there (point to her kitchen set).’

After a few minutes of her crying and promising that she saw a monster, I walk over to the kitchen set and moved it over to show her that there was no monster there. At that moment a big mouse ran out from under it and I started crying louder than she did. I still feel bad as she had been complaining about that ‘monster’ for a few nights and I can only imagine how scary it was for her to see that little fucker pop out when no one else was around.”

37. “Dad, why does that man have a knife?”

“when my son was about 4 or 5 we were in the toilet before his bedtime and he was brushing his teeth and he dropped his tooth brush and i picked it up for him and when my eyes met him he just stared at me and said ‘Dad, why does that man have a knife?’ and pointed behind me. Quickest 180 i’ve ever fucking done.”
