I'd like to start off as saying I've always thought the paranormal, and ghosts were tv and hollywood made up nonsense.
I work part-time at a local daycare ran by a family friend while taking night classes. For the family friend's privacy I won't say the name of the daycare.
The first day I started working was fun I love kids and enjoy spending time with them.
There was something odd though (I'm not using her real name) Ann a four year old kept talking about someone called big bro yet when I asked, her parents she was an only child I passed it off as an imaginary friend and forgot about it.
The first I guess you'd call paranormal event happened back in November. It was cold so the heat was on constantly, yet when I would walk into the playroom it was cold. I checked the vent incase it was covered but I could feel heat coming from the vent then I checked the window it was completely shut.
I walked back in a few hours later to clean up the kids' toys and it was warm like the other rooms.
A few days later I was checking in on the baby's while, they were supposed to be napping but some are little escape artistes
I opened the door and saw Bobby (not his real name) he was half way over the side of the crib when I caught him he froze or got scared and let go of the rail.
The distance between his crib and the door is rough 14 feet I ran for him but the really freaky part is he stopped mid air halfway to the floor. Then he was lowered onto the floor I grabbed him and, ran out of that room. I went to (not her real name) Emily and told her what happened.
She said," Relax dear that's just Chris." I was dumbfounded she acted like it was normal. I guess the look of disbelief showed and then Emily went more into detail. She said Chris worked here for years making the kids happy but a few months before I started he passed away due to an asthma attack.
The kids loved him and had taken to calling him big bro. They can see him because they are so young and innocent he helps out still even after passing away.
She told me on occasion she can still see him playing with them; a baby would be giggling up a storm and they were alone, a block would lift up by itself or the rocking chair he'd read to them in would rock by itself.
I have seen similar things since our chat one time I was trying to comfort one of the babies while they were fussy. I tripped over a toy and fell back I wrapped the baby up and got ready for the pain but I never hit the ground.
I was pushed back up and I heard whistling like a lullaby the baby calmed down. The kids still say they see their big bro and I've walked into the playroom to clean up and all the toys are already put away.
I feel fortunate that my first run in with the paranormal has been such a positive one.
