My husband and I purchased our home in February of this year. We live here with our two young children. It is a fixer-upper so for the first two months it was kind of hectic around the house. About a few weeks after moving in my oldest daughter told me that she woke up one night and saw a man in our living room that was dressed in black (she can see the living room from her bed). She said she was so scared that she pulled the covers over her head. I assured her that she must have been dreaming or it might be construction material in the living room. I thought nothing of the situation and left it at that.
A few nights ago as I was getting ready for bed I saw a black figure going around the corner of our L-shaped hallway. I called out to my husband and he was watching TV in the living room. I was freaked out but I was trying not to scare myself. That same night I woke up to see my daughters light on in her bedroom. I got up to check on her, she said she heard foot steps while she was using the bathroom. I tried to comfort her so she would go back to sleep.
My husband just came home from work and told me he didn't sleep maybe an hour last night. He said something was shaking him while he was asleep. He said it happened three times. He said he didn't wake me because he didn't want to scare me.
Seeing a black figure is one thing but being shook in bed while asleep is something altogether different. I'm wondering if we should feel threatened by these experiences.
