Over on the SDL Facebook wall, I asked you what the creepiest thing was that you’ve ever heard a kid say.
I had no idea what to expect.
This is what I got. Plus a few future posts as well.
24 More of the Creepiest Things Ever Said by Kids
1. Two nights ago after I put my son to bed.. I heard talking come from his room. I found him standing in the corner in the pitch black saying, “stop tickling me! Stop tickling me!”
2. “I watch you sleep at night then I go back to my room.”
3. Just a couple of months ago, my two year old daughter and I were in her darkened bedroom as she was getting ready to sleep. Like any kid new to numbers, she loves to count. So she pointed to herself and then me, counting, “One, two…” before jumping up and pointing around the empty room. “Three, four, five, six, seven, eight, nine, ten! TEN PEOPLE!” she yelled proudly.
4. My son was about two and a half,three and we had just moved into a new house. He was playing in the living-room, his father and i were sitting on the couch when he tripped, I dove to catch him but mid fall he stood right back up. I hadn’t touched him. As he stood up he said “thanks.” I asked him who he was thanking and he said “grandma. She caught me.” As he ran away there was a single ring of smoke by where he was standing and the whole living-room started to smell like cigarette smoke. About 30 minutes later his dad’s Mom (my sons grandmother) called to tell him that his grandma (my son’s great grandma) had passed away that morning. It was definitely creepy!
5. “Mommy, when I grow up I want boobies as long as yours!” She was three. I bought a better bra.
6. My niece puts her hand on my wife’s pregnant belly and says,”Your baby is gonna die.”
7. My nine year old son asked this question the other morning at 5:45 A.M. “What’s creepier… Screaming ground beef or giant hissing spiders?” These were his first words for the day.
8. My family and I went on a trip to Gettysburg, PA when my daughter was four and son was six. The Battle of Gettysburg was the bloodiest battle of the civil war…the whole town is hallowed ground, lots of death and blood. Well, anyway, we were on our way home and talking about our favorite part of the trip. My daughter said her favorite part of the trip was “seeing the soldier on the horse in the field”. The issue is: there was no soldier on the field, or horse. We were not there during any reenactments, and never seen anyone dressed up riding a horse!

so my dad asked me to have a drink with him, and said "son, when I die, please don't cry...as long as you remember me, I will be more than happy..' and said "WTH Dad...!!",,,and 3 days later he died :,(
While reading my 7 year old son a story, he looks away from me and says:
D : Dad, I'm going to miss you when you are gone.
Me: What do you mean, I'm not going anywhere?
D : *Does some mental counting* You will be dead in 7 years. And when that happens, I'm going to be sad.
Me; *Floored* Dead, what do you mean, I don't plan on being dead for a very long time. Why do you think I'm going to die in 7 years?
D: I'm sorry for interrupting, can we finish the chapter?
When I was little, I used to see dark figures with no faces watch me while I was in bed. Sometimes they would raise an axe and bring it down on me, and once it touched me they would disappear. Sometimes they would just watch me for a long time. I know I was wide awake, because I would pinch myself to try to wake up, and they would still be there. This happened for years. It still really creeps me out when I think about it.
Our son was 3. My husband and I were sitting on the couch and the boy was playing and running around when he suddenly stopped, looked over at us and said (in a very happy voice) "You sent me back! I picked you and you sent me back, so I picked you again and now I am here." It was really upsetting and creepy to us because 2 months before I got pregnant with him I had had an abortion. (Medical reasons) It still disturbs us.
My son and daughter both had a couple of weird comments when they were young:
At about 2 1/2 - 3, my son told my mom that the sparkly colored men with no faces kept watching him, and pointed to the other side of the room.
At about 3, my daughter was walking and suddenly lurched forward. She claims someone pushed her. My mom who was watching her said it did appear that someone shoved her and she had small little finger tip sized bruises on her back (that one gave me chills, which is why my mom didn't tell me for the longest time).
About 20 years ago, my co-worker said her son used to talk with a "Billy" in his room at the apartments they had just moved into. They thought it was an imaginary friend,until after talking to other tenants. Apparently several years prior, Billy had committed suicide by hanging in that room.
(As a side note, I work with the now grown up young man who saw Billy. I asked if he remembers that and he said "oh yes! I remember playing with him in my room". He said his mom has also had some other weird things happen in her life, so maybe their family is gifted with a little something special)
When my daughter was 3 she sat up in my bed after she had woken up. She looked into the corner intensely and whispers "mommy is going to die in a fire". I said what and she smiles sweetly "nothing mommy".
Just this last Tuesday I was at a sick appointment with 2 of my kids. 7 year old daughter and 7 month old son. They did a rectal temperature on my son and my daughter laughs "Bubby likes it in his butt".
I think the creepiest thing I've heard a kid say was a little kid once told me where he got his energy from (when I asked him).
When my son was three or so, he made a lego airplane and then crashed it to pieces. About an hour later, we got a call that my husband's father (who was a pilot) had been in a plane crash.
As I had stitches and the kitchen faucet had a pull out nozel, I told my then 3 1/2 year old daughter that I was going to wash my hair in the kitchen sink. She looked at the sink and back at me and said, "but Mommy, you won't fit in there!"
When my brother was very young he had a sore throat and not knowing what it was he told the doctor "when I drink my spit my tonsils cry"
As my son is petting our family dog. He says 'you know why you can't eat dogs?... Because you'll get arrested'
So I had pneumonia and after a coughing fit I turned to my 9 yr old son Natas and said "ugh, I'm gonna die!" He turns and looks at me all somber and says "Oh. Well I will miss you." Um thanks lol
My son was 2 and half years old at the time. He was so sick, had a bad fever. He was laying in bed when my mom went to go check on him. He told her about some lady in a white dress in the room. It scared me.
So about a month ago my son (age 3) was walking in the backyard jumping from stepping stone to stepping stone. When he, what sounded to me like a mumble, said, "mumu sky mumu going mumum." When i asked him what he said he still spoke very quietly, muttering while looking down jumping stone, "umumumu sky goumu to umum." For the second time i asked him, "what did you say greg?" He stopped walking, calmly looked up at me and said with a smile on his face, "The sky is going to burn daddy. The sky is going to turn allllll black." The ran away to his swing set yelling,"Watch me slide daddy" like nothing had ever happened.
When I was pregnant with my 3rd child, I was explaining it to my 2 kids aged 4 and 6. I explained how before I met their Dad, I was married to someone else, and got pregnant, but the baby did not survive....my 6 year old said, yeah Mum, I know, that was me, I decided to come later after you met our Dad. My daughter at 5 years old said..'I am your Queen, I am your slave, I will be your pleasure, and I will be your pain. Also, when I was pregnant with my daughter, I felt she was my Dad reincarnated. We came home from the hospital after she was born, and my 21 month old son ran around the house shouting, 'Pepi is Markie, Pepi is Markie Abbott'.....I talk about my dad, but don't refer to him by his full name like that for my son to be parrotting....
My husband used to raise chickens for food. He would always joke about the neighbor's chicken on our porch and how he would like to kill him and eat him. One day my daughter age 4 saw the knife I kept up above the window casing. She said, "What is that knife up there for?" And I said, "Well if any bad people came in here and tried to hurt us, I would use that knife to protect us." And she said, "Would you kill them?" And I said, "Well, I wouldn't want to, but it may happen." And she said, "If you did kill them, would we eat them?" And I said, "Why would we eat them?" And she said, "Well daddy is always talking about how we have to kill the chicken and then we would eat it." So I know where she got it from, but it was just funny.
When I was pregnant with my youngest, we went out to eat. My oldest wasn't eating his food; he'd pick it up and let it fall to the plate, pick off a corner and nibble it followed by a sigh. This went on for a while before I finally asked "What's eating you, son?" He put down his chicken and said "Millions of babies die every day because they come out of their mommies too early."
What a fun read! I have had a couple of these moments at my home. It is creepy. Sometimes it is really neat too. My 4 year old son at church the other day whispered during the sermon "I see God mom. He is here." I said really? Where do you see him? He said "standing next to Pastor." He was so serious about it that you knew he wasn't making it up.
For three nights in a row, my daughter woke up and told me about a lady who was coming to her dreams. In the 1st dream, the lady was standing in her room. In the 2nd, she was standing in a field, and in the 3rd the same woman was standing in a field, pointing toward a farmhouse. She said she wasn't scared of her, just a little unsettled because she knew it was a dead person who was trying to show her something. She must have been pretty affected by it though, because she even drew pictures of the woman, and described her clothes and the farm to me in great detail. I wondered if an ancestor was trying to make contact. Who knows?
Kelly and Isaac....wth!!!!! LOL!!!! Yeah they weren't too creepy!! The one about the scab made me want to throw up! Hahahaha
When My daughter was 4, we would sometimes find her laying in bed awake at 10 or 11 at night My husband would ask her why she was awake and she would always answer the same. "the people in my room won't stop talking and let me sleep" she would complain about that she didn't sleep well because "people in my room talking" until she was 6.
My daughter when in K-5 was asked to draw something that rhymed with red...95% of the class drew a bed, she drew a dead person, blood and all. Was asked to come in for a conference about that one...
I have 4 younger siblings. My brother Jake was supposed to be a twin but my sister died in utero. He was 4 years old and my step-mother was pregnant with my now little sister... He started rambling on about his sister. I assumed he was talking about me. He said "No, the one I already have" I replied with "The one in mommy's belly?" He said "No! The one I already have" Then he followed with "Her name is Megan, She is 4 years old and looks just like me. She hides from me but I always find her". At this point int ime he had no idea he was a twin. Needless to say I did not sleep that night because I kept expecting to see "Megan"
After reading those it reminded me of something that happened...My Grandmother passed away when my daughter was just a little over 1 year old....before she died Grandma would always tell us she would come back and let us know she made it to the other side. My daughter was 3 when Grandma let us know! I had her on my bed getting her ready to go to day care and she was singing a song, not in English, I said to her honey what are you singing I can't understand you she looked at me and said shhh Grandma Stacey is teaching me a song. My grandma always taught us things in Slovak. Talk about goose bumps..I told her to tell Grandma I loved her and missed her!
I was told a story by a family member. She had a friend who's little girl was getting ready to get out of the bathtub. The Mom was putting away "bath crayons" and noticed one was missing. She asked her daugher where the other was, and she said it was in the crayon hole. The Mom thought she meant the bathtub drain and didn't thinking anything else of it. Later while putting her daughter to bed, the Mom who was pregnant at the time was tucking her daughter into bed when short discussion about where babies came from evolved. So the Mom expalined....then her daughter burst out, "Oh so the baby comes out the crayon hole".
My son grew up in the room that my dad passed away in....Poppy watched over my son from the time he was born... Our house and land is where the Blackfoot and Crow Indians used to do battles...lots of history here...I love it!!
Babies staring at corners and giggling are their angels they see. Nothing creepy. Welcome them and ask them to watch over and protect your child.
I think it's awesome how children see spirits. I wish it would have continued with my daughter but she doesn't see anymore. The last ghost frightened her and after I sent it away, she never had anymore. I've had many experiences of her and I having the same dream at the same time and waking up from it together when we would sleep together. Weird phenomena.
@LisaBebee I lost 2 pregnancies very early on, and now have 2 very healthy boys. I am convinced they are the same kids, and that it just took a couple of tries to get them here.
@LisaBebee i heard the same story from a friend of mine, with one interesting difference: she was the little boy's aunt, his mother being unable to care for him properly. one day at the age of 4 or 5 or so, he told her that she had 'done something before' to 'get rid' of him but now he was so happy because they were together.
@MOConnor21 Me too! Me too! Love these stories, esp the supernatural ones. Fascinating!
My son had the same problem, and when he turned six, his people left too. He is now 9 almost 10 and I asked him if he remembered the people, and he said yes he did, and he was glad they left because he could sleep a lot better now.
