In honor of Halloween, I thought it might be fun to share creepy things that have either happened to you or things you've heard kids say that freaked you out.
I have a couple good ones.
Weird things really start to happen in our house any time I get pregnant. The last two pregnancies, I got pregnant around this time of year (on the exact day, probably. My two older kids share a birthday two years apart). Anyways, I was pregnant with #2 and didn't know it yet and our then 15m old suddenly started having panic attacks when we put her to bed at night. She was fine during day time naps but would come unglued at night when I put her to bed. We ruled out separation anxiety, temper tantrums, fear of the dark - pretty much went down the list of possible causes and checked them all off. Nothing worked, nothing helped. After about two weeks of this sudden behavior change, she went down relatively easy one night. I sent my husband out to tend to our horses and I went into our master bathroom to start a bath. While I was in my bathroom, I heard a male voice similar to my husbands sing-song softly (but distinctly audible) the pet name we have for our daughter. Now, this pet name was only used at home by me and my husband. My parents and MIL know it as well but live half the country away. No one else knew the name or called her by it. My daughter woke up in absolute hysterics and I bolted to her room, expecting to see my husband looking sheepish at her door after trying to say goodnight to her. Instead, I almost ran into him as he was coming in through our patio doors. Truly freaked out now, I reached my daughter's room. She was the only one there. We live on acreage and are the only family with children so we have ruled out interference with the monitor as a possibility. Since that night, my husband and I have both heard a male voice mumbling on the monitor. The creepiest thing is now my daughter is verbal and we hear her whispering back to the voice. When asked about it, she has told me it's her friend. That's about all she will say about it. Creeps me and my husband the hell out when it happens.
