Kids are weird. And they say a lot of weird and creepy things that freak out parents on a pretty regular basis.
Why do you think there are so many scary movies with terrifying children in them? The Omen, The Exorcist, the list goes on and on.
These parents are now feeling the creepiness, too. And they were nice enough to share the weird and scary things their kids are saying with all of us.
Barlow Adams kicked it off with The Lullaby Lady…
9: Can I sleep with you?
9: Had a dream about the Lullaby Lady.
9: An old woman with no skin on her hands.
M: Why do you call her that?
9: Because she stands next to your bed and hums while you sleep.
M: Sure, just let Daddy put the house up for sale real quick.

And oh did Twitter deliver after that…
1. Sweet dreams!
My oldest son at 3 told us a man with bleeding eyes was trying to put blood in his mouth, that he came from the tree out front, at our old house.
Freaking terrifying 😱

2. No hugs.
My 2yo started talking about a ghost a while ago. Mostly it seems to be an imaginary friend. She plays hide & seek w/ it, talks to it, plays catch w/ it (throws a ball at nothing).
Then one day hubs asked if she wanted to hug it, to which she said: “No! It burn all the toys.”😬

3. The kid is possessed.
When my son was 4 he would crawl across the bedroom floor or stand by the bed asking to be let in the bed for cuddles.
He’d speak in Polish to his mum, I’d wake up and see a small shadowy figure whispering strange sounds.

4. OH MY GOD.
My 5yo: Don’t die mommy
Me: I wasn’t planning on, babe.
My 5yo: It already happened before
5yo: Before you were my mommy
ALRIGHT SON LET’S JUST GO COLOR OR SOMETHING

5. Creepy, indeed.
My 4yo talks about seeing shadows with fire eyes in the corners of rooms, floating down the hall…standing behind me. Kids are creepy.

6. The moon doesn’t forget…
Me: I have to close the curtains or the moon will keep you up.
6 y/o: No, I like the moon. She tells me stories!
Me: Yeah, about what?
6: About when you were a kid like me.
M: That’s funny.
6: The moon’s been watching you your whole life. And she never forgets what you did.

7. The horned lady.
My 3 yo asked if she could get a canopy to protect her from the horned lady. The picture she drew of her was terrifying.

8. The old lady by the bed.
My 6 year old had a princess bed with curtains around it. She used to get really hot in bed so I suggested not drawing the curtains around her. She replied, ‘No, I have to have the curtains drawn then I can’t see the old lady standing next to my bed. I don’t like her watching me’

9. Dying inside.
once when my oldest daughter was 2, I was laying with her in bed to get her to go to sleep. After 15 minutes she turns to me and—very matter-of-factly—asks “daddy, who is the man in my closet?”
I calmly say “there’s no one there babe, time for sleep.” And then I died inside ☠️

10. Voices in the ceiling.
A friend & her husband bought a very old, historical house. They were in the process of restoring it when her then 4 year old told her there was a voice in the ceiling that would speak to her.

11. THE BLOOD MAN.
Family trip to war museum:
6: Dad did you see the man?
Me: What man?
6: The man in the plane.
4: The man with the blood on his face!
Me: *looks around. None of the planes have mannequins in.*
6: Its the blood man!
6,4,2: THE BLOOD MAN THE BLOOD MAN

12. Possible reincarnation?
When my kid was 3 he told me I had always been his mummy , but the time before he was a girl and I looked different, “but mummy I was me , and you were you , we have always been together “ 😳😍

13. Get outta that house!
Our oldest would have recurring nightmares about a scary man with one night that comes in her room. We had her draw a picture to see if that would help her get over it. When we looked at the picture, my wife and I seriously considered selling the house and moving that week.

14. Now this should be a horror movie.
When my son was 3 he had an imaginary friend called Mr Nobody who had chicken skin for hair 😳
