Children say the strangest things.
Sometimes something sweet, sometimes something brutally honest, and sometimes something utterly creepy.
Most of the time it’s a case of their imagination going crazy when they say something creepy.
But nonetheless, it’s still unnerving.
Some very unnerved parents have shared the creepiest things their parents have ever told them.
My niece drew a picture “of a man in her room” that she kept telling her parents about.
‘He had two different colored eyes, and one was gray. When asked why it was gray, she responded “because he can see the storm coming.”‘
When my son was four or five he saved us from a car crash.
Sounds odd, I know, but while in the car he repeatedly covered his head and shouted: ‘I don’t want to get glass on my face!’
A few moments later, a pick-up truck towing some snowmobiles pulled out in front of a tractor trailer a few cars in front of us and got hit, spinning out into the median. Fortunately, we avoided the accident completely. It was indeed a bit creepy, though, almost as though he predicted there was going to be an accident right in front of us.
‘Dad. When I’m seven I’m going to kill you. No, wait. When I’m eight.”
I had to ask: “How are you going to do that?” She smiled and said “I’m gonna drive over your head with this car.’
She turns eight in a month. Anyone want to buy a car?
