When kids say the creepiest thing, we freak out. Here are more of stories posted in Reddit about children who startled their parents.
When my son was small, I was talking to him about growing potatoes. I described how you bank up the earth around them as they grow, and he said “I used to do that when I was an old man”. – cheeselet
When my cousin was 2 years old or so, her mom got pregnant again. One day she went to hug her mom’s belly and said “little brother sick”. A few days later she had a miscarriage. – JuWhi
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 the kick balls goes down the stairs. A little girl was standing at the top of the stairs yelling “just throw it up to me.” I went over and asked who she was talking to. 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 questioned 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. – Geoffeaton
My first son at three years old, as he was falling asleep in the car: “Last time, I died in a fire.”
I almost drove off the road. – ndelregno
My mom told me that when I was about 4 or 5 I would sit and talk to an imaginary friend. When she asked me who I was talking to, I said it was Viola and she was teaching me how to draw.
My mom flipped out because Viola was my great grandmother and she was an artist. She died nearly 20 years before I was born. — [deleted]
My friend scolded her 3-year-old daughter. It’s her practice to explain what they did wrong and make them apologize and hug. This one time, the child comes in for a hug, she whispers “mommy I love you but when you sleep tonight I will kill you”. – Pelito
