We have always had odd little things happen around our house, especially after my daughter was born. Nothing big, just little things here and there, like when I was rocking her one day I felt someone squeeze my foot. It was a comfort squeeze and nothing more, but I was home alone with her. I always figured it was a passed away relative coming to see the new addition. Right after her first birthday, everything stopped.
Last weekend, we rearranged her room to make it more of a big girl's room, and started to get things together for her second birthday. The first night she was getting ready to go to bed she was crying and said that she didn't want to sleep in her room. I figured it was because of the change and told her she had to. She started to get frantic about it so I asked her what was wrong.
She said it was a scary room. I asked her what was scary and she told me her dolls were scaring her. We took out every single doll but she was still freaking out. We asked her what else was wrong and she pointed to hall and kept saying, "Scary grandma." I looked and didn't see anything. I asked her what she was talking about and she just kept saying, "Scary grandma" over and over. I asked her if she wanted me to tell the grandma to leave and she said yes. I looked over to where she was pointing to and said, "Grandma, you have to leave. You are scaring Libby and she needs to go to sleep."
My daughter immediately calmed down and went right to bed. We had the same exact thing happen last night except she was pointing to the closet, instead. Once we told grandma to leave she calmed down and went right to sleep.
I don't know if I can do if anything in this situation. I just hate the thought that my child is scared of her own room. I am sure that if anyone is in there they are just there to see her and not to harm or scare her, but I am still uneasy about it.
