This is a true story that my parents told me. I remember this house, and my one friend lives here now. This is in Pennsylvania, near Harrisburg.
When I was little (very young), I lived in a haunted house. There was this spirit that you could hear. It would sound like stomping up the stairs, but running. It would sound like three big dogs. Now, we had one dog, but he'd stay in my parents' room in the night. He was always cautious about the stairs and often just sat and stared at them.
Now, whatever this spirit was, it would steal my parents' stuff and it would end up in a cubby hole in the attic. This made my parents very paranoid and a bit annoyed.
One day my mom saw whatever it was, and thought it was me. She walked into the hall, thinking it was my shadow, as it looked like a small child's. She didn't see me, so she looked in my crib. I was still in it, sleeping soundly. She freaked out and told my dad. He wasn't really concerned.
They have both told me there was always a feeling of someone watching them in their sleep, as well as a feeling every once in a while of being touched, like around the legs or on the shoulder when sitting. They always looked behind them to see if it was me, but I wasn't there.
My friend lives in a house and has been reporting stuff like this to me. I am actually surprised, as she lived in the same house as I once did. She said that she often sees shadowy figures, but it looks like the same shadow all the time. She has no siblings other than an older sibling, and this looked like a five year old. She is very confused and a bit curious.
Does anyone know what this was? I'm very curious and would like to know.
