To be honest, I do not know that this is paranormal in anyway but it's been going on for so long now and so consistently and has produced one or two rather terrifying incidents that I am wondering if it is more than just a 3 year old imagination.
My youngest son (the only one that lives with my (ex) wife and I) has been saying that he sees a bird or birds in his room at night for about the last year and a half, two years now. We recently moved from one end of town to another and on the night the move started, the worst experience of all happened. My wife and I were woken from a dead sleep by my son screaming bloody murder. I can't remember off hand right now exactly what he said but, when we asked him what was wrong I remember him mentioning "the bird" above his bed. There was, and is nothing above his bed. I have placed a Guardian angel and a blessed Icon of St. Anne and Our Lady above his bed. This seems to have mitigated things but, he still sees this "bird".
We thought that it might be the fact that our old apartment was built above an old municipal pool but the building we live in now was finished last August (2014). I still can't dismiss the fact that both my wife and I are currently full time students and this may be a way for him to get our attention but, that would suggest to me that he would be doing this every night. He is not. He also had little to no trouble sleeping a few weeks ago due to being sick. Well, accept the night he woke up 3 or 4 times to throw up.
Has anyone else had this happen to their child and if so, what have you done about it?
