I can't stop thinking about what happened yesterday...
I was home with my 2 year old daughter alone, my 11 year old was in school and my husband was at the office. I was in the kitchen and I could hear my little one playing in the dining room/hall area. She just turned two, but can speak very well. I kept hearing her say, "I can see you." I assumed she was talking to me. Well after she said it about 5 times, I stepped halfway out of the kitchen, which allows me to look directly into the dining room, and she was standing on one side of a square column leaning to the side with her back facing the kitchen saying, "I can see you." This happened several more times with her going around the column and I just watched her. She never looked towards the kitchen and did not know I was watching her. She then ran towards the guest bathroom like she was being chased but in a fun way and stopped abruptly and started laughing and bending over and raising her shoulders up like she was being tickled. Then she started "chasing" whatever she was playing with, with her arms extended like she was trying to catch it while laughing.
Her motions were very fluid as if she were really interacting with someone. I immediately grabbed my cell phone to video it, then realized wait what if there is something there and then I got scared. My walking into the dining room got her attention, she stopped playing looked the other way and smiled at whatever she was playing with and walked over to me. I regret that I was too afraid to ask her "who" she could see and "who" she was playing with.
About an hour later, she and I passed by the dining room and she was holding my hand, got behind my legs, and pointed towards the stairs, and said, "Oooh, scary mommy, scary." And I said, "What baby, what is scary?" and she just got more behind my legs and continued to point to the stairs. At that point, I just grabbed her and took outside for a while so that I could put it out of her mind. Don't know what to make of it.
