You probably know that kids have a very flimsy connection to logic and reality. They're like politicians that way, only it's cute when they lie. However, out of the mouths of babes also come some of the darnest creepy things you have ever heard. There's just some spooky eeriness to these proclamations that's hard to explain. Here's some of the most horror story things kids have ever said.
You'll See Grandma Tomorrow
twizzler95: My Grandma died of cancer in February 2012. My whole family was up at my Grandparent's house to comfort each other. The night before her prayer service, my 4 year old cousin told my heartbroken Grandpa, "Good night Grandpa. Don't be so sad. You'll see Grandma tomorrow." We all heard and assumed she meant at the prayer service, but he died the next morning.
Why Does That Man Have a Knife?
benswargle: When my son was about 4 or 5 we were in the toilet before his bedtime and he was brushing his teeth and he dropped his tooth brush and I picked it up for him and when my eyes met him he just stared at me and said "dad why does that man have a knife" and pointed behind me. Quickest 180 I've ever f*cking done.
Where the Dead Babies Go
PersonMcNugget: A good friend of mine and her husband bought what is considered an 'old' house around here. (Western Canada...not many houses over 100 years old). They were renovating the basement one day while I was visiting. I was down there alone with their son, who was barely 2 at the time, and could not yet speak in full sentences. He took my hand and led me over to a brick chimney-like thing, with a rusty metal door on it. He looked up and said 'That's where the dead babies go.'
I was horrified. Firstly, because, like I said, the kid could barely talk, let alone say something like that. I doubt he even knew what 'dead' meant. I'm positive that no one would have told him that, and there were no older kids around that would have said that as a joke. Still creeps me out to this day.
The Dead Boy in the Closet
TaffetaDarling: When my daughter was around 4 or 5, we lived in a house that had been converted into three separate apartments. We lived in the basement portion. Because of the way they converted the house, there was a small recessed area under one of the stairways that formed a small closet/storage space in her room. One night while she was getting ready for bed I overheard her talking to someone in her room. I poked my head in and asked if she was calling for me. Her words - "No. I was talking to the little boy who lives in my closet... He's dead." Insta-chills.
Mommy, Who's That?
Hollicost: My daughter and I woke up one morning and we usually lay there and talk for a while before we get up. I'm laying facing the wall with my back towards the door. My daughter is talking and facing me, pauses, and asks," Mommy, who's that?" And points behind me. I didn't know whether to turn around or just let whoever was about to murder me do it while I wasn't looking. I turned around and no one was there. Scariest moment of my life.
He's Behind You Now
ToastedCheese: "Go back to sleep, there isn't anything under your bed". "Hes behind you now". Still haven't gotten over that one and shiver at the memory.
Where the Scary Girl Lives
level1biscuit: Babysitting my nephew, he was around 4 or so. Me: Will you go get the cup from the living room? Him: No. I don't go in the living room. Me: Why? Him: That's where the fireplace is. Me: So? Him: That's were the scary girl lives. Me: Well, I guess I don't go in there either.
Satan in the Sandbox
TuggbackWookie: My son´s best friend, age 5: "I found Satan while I was digging in the sandbox. Now he lives inside me." He comes from a christian family. That sh*t can´t be healthy.
I Am Your Mother
benedictishii: My older sister was born the year my Dad's mom died. According to my dad, as soon as my sister was old enough to say the words, she said "I am your mother."
How Did You Get Out of Your Box?
I passed out reading my 3 year old niece a book at bedtime. Then, woke up around 2am and sat up. It was dark and silent. There was a nightlight on that gave my nieces face a rembrandt lighting effect. She had her eyes wide open looking at me and whispered... "How did you get out of your box?"
