Im starting to feel like Nicole Kidman from "The Others". THERE ARE GHOSTS IN MY HOUSE!!!!
Last week I was on the phone with my sister in law Jory. I was upstairs and my kids were running around playing and Benett was asleep in the nursery. All of a sudden I see (who I thought) was Spencer run into the nursery. Im chatting away on the phone as I turn and see the door to the nursery close every so slowly. Im moving as quickly and quietly as I can to hurry up and go get Spencer out of there before he wakes up Benett - but when I open up the door and walk in there.....Spencer was nowhere to be found. I walked back out into the hallway and sure enough here comes Spencer running towards me from out of the guest room.....Apparently the ghost was hiding in the nursery!
Two days ago I was blow drying my hair downstairs. I was bent over upside down drying it from underneath when I felt and heard one of my kids RUN passed me. In our house your footsteps carry on the hard wood floors and Brigitte sounds like a herd of elephants when shes in a hurry. Assuming someone was up to no good I whip my head up and turn around to see what was going on....but of course nobody was there. Turns out both my kids were quietly sitting on the couch watching blues clues.
Last night Brigitte had one of her all night parties starting at 3 am. I heard her singing, talking, playing, and making all sorts of noise in her room. This isnt unusual so as long as its not waking up the other kids we generally try to ignore it. But then I heard her go into the bathroom around 4, and a few minutes later she called for me to come help her. I got up and went in to see what she needed. I asked her WHO on earth she was talking to and she gave me this sort of embarrassed look and said "nothing mom". We went back in to her room to tuck her in. She laid in bed and I bent down to fix her blankets, when I see a black figure/person (actually just their legs) rush passed her room going towards Spencers room.. It startled BOTH Brigitte and I, and I called out GABE????? No answer. I told Brigitte goodnight and slowly walked to her door, looked out and down the hall....and saw nobody. I thought maybe Spencer had gotten up and Gabe was in there checking on him or something, but when I went back to my room Gabe was snoring soundly in bed. (He sleeps through EVERYTHING in this house!) Im not gonna lie, I was totally scared. I hovered in my doorway watching the hall - half expecting a person to appear. But after 2 minutes I told myself I was crazy and started to shut my door to go back to bed.....
And then I heard Brigitte say "its OK, you can come back now. She's gone."
I tell you what, it nearly put me over the edge. I literally laid in bed in fear for another hour half expecting a ghost to push open my door. The good news is i never feel an evil presence or anything other than sheer surprise when these things happen. Although I have never seen or noticed an adult ghost before, they have always been children. So that was weird. All I know is Gabe is spending most of this weekend away from home and I will have two late night alone with the kids....anyone want to come over??? Lol.
