Just yesterday (Tues, Aug 28, '12), I was getting both of my children ready for daycare. Got my son Grant dressed (4 years old), then my daughter Lucy (1 year old, will be 2 Oct 8). I left her sitting on the couch so I could go get her comb and hair ties to fix her hair.
I sat back down next to her on the couch and said, "Lucy, mommy needs to fix your hair." She continued staring off into space, toward our front door. Then I said, "Come on, Lucy, mommy needs to fix your hair so I can get ready for work." Then she looked at me and said, "Gammaw (Grandma) here," and pointed to the front door. I said, "No sis, Grandma's at work." I thought she was talking about my dad's wife, because she is "Grandma" to my kids. Again, she pointed at the door, and said, "Gammaw here." I told her again that Grandma was at work, but maybe we could see her this weekend. She was getting very frustrated, got up, pulled on my hand, and took me to the hallway where there is a picture of my grandma hanging up, and pointed to it and said, "Gammaw here!" and smiled.
Later in the evening, her dad was here, they were watching videos on youtube, out of nowhere she says, "Gammaw my friend." He asked her, and she said she was NOT talking about "Grammy" which is his mom.
This evening, she was sitting on the couch watching Sesame St. I was on the laptop, sitting next to her. She giggled, pointed at the door, and said "hiding." I asked her who was hiding, she said "Gammaw playin. Wanna play outside." I said, "Grandma wants you to play outside with her?" She smiled a big smile, and shook her head yes. I took her outside, and she just giggled and babbled and played in the dirt and rode on her princess car. I asked her if Grandma was outside with us, and she shook her head yes and pointed to our bench in the yard. When we came inside, my mom asked her if she played with Grandma, and she smiled really big and shook her head yes.
What is funny, is earlier in the day, my mom had asked her if she had seen Grandma today, and she shook her head and said no. That was about 2 hours before she started talking about "Gammaw hiding" and "playing."
I thoroughly believe she is seeing the spirit of my Grandmother. She passed away on November 28 of 2011 at age 92. Why is she just now coming around? And why is my daughter the only one seeing her? I do believe the reason why she may come to our house is because she lived here for a bit after my grandpa passed away in 2004, and she herself was ill and could not take care of herself anymore.
Also, my daughter has stranger anxiety terribly, so why would she not be scared of my grandma's spirit when she sees her? I have had paranormal experiences before, but never in my own home and it was not any relation to me, it was on a ghost hunt. Does anyone think if I snapped a few pictures of her the next time she's talking about "Gammaw" that I might catch something?
