Creepy or Cool Beans?

Lilo has only recently started to use the word “creepy” correctly. She used it like the word “awesome” for a while, and it was funny as hell. Now, she is able to denote when something is creepy v/s when it is cool beans.

Which brings me to something that is both creepy AND cool beans. Parents were asked about the weirdest things their little kids have ever said to them. I don’t think people were expecting quite this level of “why did my skin just crawl and why are the hairs on the back of my neck standing up”.

Buzzfeed listed it’s top 14 answers and top 13 answers, and  Tickld came up with 15 and I found more here. There appear to be other pages two. Yikes. Here are some of the ones that spooked my ass the most:

 

creepy one

 

My five year old has stuck to this SAME story since he was 3: I remember my last mom and dad died and you found me, remember, I was on the side of the road when you found me as a baby. I had a little sister before but she’s dead too.

 

“My kid’s  Catholic school is over 100 years old. there is a basement under the gym that’s used for storage. I was subbing once and during recess one of he kick balls goes down  the stairs. A little girls was standing at the top of the stairs yelling “just throw it up to  me”." I went over asked who she was talking to and she replied “that big man down the stairs” I went down and there was nobody down there and it was the only way in. I asked some of the other kids if they have seen the man before and they said, “yes, but sister told us not to talk to him”. I asked them to describe “sister” and they described a nun and there haven’t been nuns at the school in 40 years.”

 

creepy three

 

When my older brother was 2 he wouldn’t go by any other name than John and would insist on being called that name (his name is Brent), when he was 4 years old he asked my mom where Yoko was. My mom told him she was doing well and living in New York, once Brent understood this, he was relieved and was okay with continuing on as Brent. My brother has gone on to be a talented musician and artist, with friends in the celebrity realm. Oh, and he was conceived 3 months after John Lennon’s death…

 

My best friend Lisa died when I was pregnant with my daughter. When my daughter was 3 I heard her laughing. I said ” what are you laughing at?” She said ” auntie Lisa is making silly faces at me and playing with me.”

 

creepy four

 

When my daughter was 3 she woke up one morning looking rough. I asked if she slept okay and she said, “No! Popaw Mike kept me up all night pinching my toes!” My dad, her Popaw Mike, passed away 8 years before she was born and that’s how he used to wake my brother and I up when we were little.

 

“Mommy, the lady in the white car is okay, she didn’t die, there was an angel in the car with her.” – my son, age 2. An hour later I turned on the news and a lady in a white Cadillac had driven off the Portland bridge, but swam to safety. She reported seeing a bright light that broke her window and urged her to swim. Emergency personnel said she should have drowned.

 

creepy two

When I was about two weeks pregnant (and didn’t even know yet), my 3 year old daughter came and patted my belly and said, “great grandpa wants you to know there’s a baby boy in there and that you need to take good care of this one so you don’t both have to go to heaven when he’s born.” She had no living great grandparents, and I did end up being pregnant.

 

Excuse me while I freak out now.
