Real Ghost Stories

It Played With Me... I Think


My mom has always told me this story of when I was a little girl, a few months old. We had lived in this old trailer in Lexington, Nebraska. She said that she always had a sense that something was in that place, but you know, always shrugged it off. Well I was only a few months old, old enough to where I could sit up on my own, but I wasn't able to walk yet, so every morning for the few weeks that we were there, I always had a routine with my mom like she said. I would wake and gurgle and cry until she came.

One morning, as my mom described it, I didn't do that, instead I was laughing and "talking" to somebody... But I wasn't in my crib. Somehow my crib bar was down and the basket of laundry that was on the floor was spilt over and then there I was. My mom had told me that, she had thought somehow I figured out how to bring the bar down myself, but then thought again that I was only a baby. Well there I sat playing with somebody, and she told me that as soon as she walked through my bedroom door, I started screaming bloody murder. I just would not stop crying, so she thought I was hungry and went to go get me a bottle from the kitchen. As soon as she left, I was back to laughing.

Later that day, I was fine, just being a normal baby, exploring things out and everything until I came to this corner. I was playing with an empty Pepsi bottle, and just sat in this corner staring at the wall and was following something with my eyes. My mom told me that I was giggling and just laughing my head off at whatever I was looking at.

I don't remember any of this at all, but I figured that this spirit was friendly and enjoyed my company. I'm not sure, but I think that maybe it was my grandpa because he had died when my mom was two years old, and maybe he was visiting. Well tell me what you think. Thanks for reading.

After reading this story, I remember a story my mom used to tell me about my older sister (when she was still teenie tiny) and her "guardian angel". From where I come from, infants sleep in little hammocks. One day, while my sister was in her hammock sleeping, my mom went out to do the laundry (that's her everyday routine). A while later she saw that one of the hammock's rope snapped so she ran into the house as to stop my sister from falling to the concrete floor. But when she got in my sister was out of the hammock still sleeping as if someone took her out of the hammock before it's rope snapped and gently placed her down on the floor. Quite weird... 😕

I believe you because my son did the same thing when he was still a baby. I just know who and what makes him laugh and giggle all the time.

so...your crib bar fell down, you rolled out onto a basket of laundry thus spilling it, and being a baby you were laughing then crying for no apparent reason and just playing with a pepsi bottle and staring at the wall... And from these normal everyday happenings (that happen with most babies, which in itself says that anything can happen when you have kids), you have came to the conclusion that you were being vistied by a friendly spirit and it was your grandfather because he had died when your mother was young?... It could happen.

Stories such as yours are a reminder that not all out-of-the-ordinary experiences are frightening or like something out of Stephen King. Thanks--we need to keep that in mind, too.

Whatever it was, it DEFENITELY intended no harm. Don't worry about it at all; it's probably a deceased family member, or maybe even your guardian angel. Were there hard times when you were a baby? If so, your guardian angel couldve been trying to cheer you and your mum up! 😉

Hi XxL4L0xX: A nice innocent story it could very well have been your Grandpa visiting you! Was there any other experiences from either yourself or other family members there?

Thank you for sharing.

I think it was your spirit guide,
Many people see them when they were younger but then they realised what the saw and the spirit guides won't show itself anymore, or
It was just a friendly 😕
