Growing up I moved a lot, my dad was in the Navy and 3 years was the longest we stayed in one spot. When I was 3, we moved to Monterey, Ca. Let me tell you, lots of strange things happened there all of which I remember like it was yesterday... Maybe I'll post some of those experiences later. This experience is something that I personally don't remember, but has been told to me by every member of my immediate family word for word, for years. My parents were there along with my biological sister; who is 10 1/2 years older than me; and my biological brother; who is 9 1/2 years older than me.
One day when I was about 4 years old, I was being an absolute brat, I was running around disobeying my parents and throwing fits, so my mom decided to put me in the corner. At first I whined and cried but eventually she got me to obey, and as soon as I did I fell asleep. Yes, standing with my nose against the corner I just conked out! Everyone just figured that I was being a brat because of how tired I was.
Within minutes of falling asleep, though, I woke up, turned around and told everyone I needed a bath. Well, at this point in life I hated bathing, so it took everyone by surprise that I wanted to take one. My mom told me "Joelle, turn around, you're in time out!" I told her I needed to take a bath and get ready for work. My mom again told me, "Joelle, stop messing around you're in time out. Turn around or you'll be in more trouble!" I asked her why she kept calling me 'Joelle' (Joelle IS my real name) that's not my name and I need to get ready for work. So my mom asked me where I worked and I told her that "I make costumes for little people." When I said this a chill ran down my mom's spine.
I fought with her for another few minutes before my mom got me to face the corner, at which point I fell asleep again. When I woke up a few minutes later and was allowed to leave time out my family asked me why I had done that. I had no idea what they were talking about; I didn't remember any of it.
The really weird part is that at 4 I couldn't talk very well, but everyone says I spoke very clearly and in an older females voice.
