This morning, I was talking with my two year old in her bedroom. She randomly pointed to a blank spot on the wall toward the ceiling and said, "There is the baby. Baby. The baby is there." I told her that I didn't see a baby. And I said, "Really, a baby in the sky?" She said, "Yes, there is the baby," and pointed again. My daughter continued to gesture like she couldn't believe that I did not see it. I asked if the baby could fly and she said, yes. I asked if it was a boy or a girl baby and she said it was a boy. When I asked if the baby was happy or sad, she said, sad. When I asked her if I was the Mama of the baby, she said "No, you are my Mama. The baby's is God. Baby dead."
My daughter is happy and upbeat almost always. I read my daughter very age appropriate books. I don't let my daughter watch T.V. Shows other than Dora and a few others that seem totally appropriate to me. I have never heard her say God or dead before, nor have I attempted to discuss these topics with her before.
Is my daughter really seeing a ghost or is it imagined? Is it "common" for kids this age to talk about ghosts or other ethereal beings as if they are totally real?
I have never seen a ghost and have had only one supernatural experience. I am not worried about my daughter is she is already seeing ghosts, but I want to make sure that she let's me know if anything is ever unsettling to her.
