A few nights ago, about 30 minutes after I put my daughters to bed, one of my 7 year old twin daughters came into the den saying, "Why were you calling me, Mommy?". I told her I did not call her and she insisted I had called her name twice and told her it was an "emergency". I just told her everything was ok and put her back in bed.
The next day after school, I talked to her some more about what happened. She insisted again that I had called her until she woke up and came to find me. I told her that I believed her and I thought she was telling me the truth. She also added that other times (not the other night) her twin sister and my husband had called her name but she was never able to wake up for them - only me and when I said it was an emergency.
I totally believe her and I hope I have assured her that I believe her.
My concern, as her name was said with my voice and I said it was an emergency, is she or I or anyone else is the family in danger? Is there something different I need to do if/when it happens again?
I don't know if this is related or not but she says she always has bad dreams, although I am not aware that she was scared in this experience.
I don't know if her twin sister has ever had this happen before. If it has, she has not said anything to me. Although, she told me years ago about waking up and seeing an old man sitting in her chair in her bedroom.
I am interested to hear what everyone has to say. I have seen lots of helpful advice on this website and am so glad I found it to help us.
