My kids woke me up this morning. I came out with them into the living room. I realized I needed to use the restroom. I began to walk in the hallway near the restroom. As I'm near the door I see something out of the corner of my eyes and have to wait because I see two black feet/legs swinging back and forth, like someone is sitting on the toilet swinging their legs. My son had black socks on for PJ's the night before so I just assumed it was him.
While I am standing there waiting patiently for my turn to use the restroom, my daughter asked me for something. I told her it would be a minute because I was waiting to use the restroom until her brother got out of the bathroom. She looks confused and said, "But Mom, he's in the hallway with me." She clearly said he was next to her in the hall this whole time and had not been in the restroom.
It was then that I realized I too saw him in the hallway with his sister. Mean while I'm still seeing the black legs kicking, one leg then the other, alternating, out of the corner of my eye. Both of my children are in the hallway with me and no one else is in the house (other than my sleeping husband who is in our bedroom sound asleep).
When I realized this, I paused, afraid. I saw the kicking stop. I took a deep breath then looked inside the bathroom. No one was in the bathroom. So why had I clearly seen black feet swinging back and forth from someone sitting on the toilet a moment ago? I had been waiting to use the restroom for a couple of minutes at least. When I looked directly in that bathroom, no one was there. Creepy.
I know what I saw. I'm not crazy and I do not have a mental illness.
I asked the kids later just to double check (in case I misunderstood) but for sure my son said he had not been in the bathroom and my daughter also again said he wasn't in the bathroom. When I saw my son with my daughter in the hallway, I still saw the feet swinging back and forth so it was kind of hard to doubt my own eyes but I asked anyway. No one else was in my house to be able to do this (sleeping husband would have had to have walked by us for him to get into the bathroom and no one was in the bathroom when I looked directly inside that room).
It is also curious to note that my son's P.J. Pants were red so it also would not explain the black legs swinging either. The red is a bright red and the light was on in the bathroom so his legs would not have looked black. Weird.
I've seen other weird things, I just don't usually share it. This is the second time I've seen the legs kicking in the bathroom thing but the first time it happened I tried to convince myself it was just one of the kids. This time - no way to explain it.
So that is my weird paranormal story for the morning.
