My girls notice that people don’t talk about seeing spirits. My oldest daughter was 3 or 4 when she first asked why are “those people” standing at the end of her bed. She asked why they just looked at her. I didn’t know what to say. I didn’t see them.
As she got older, she would bring up “those people” and wanted to know why others didn’t see them. I told her she must be special. She wonders why people don’t talk about these things. I told her they must not see. She wonders why she does. I tell her she must be special. I asked her if her friends know that she sees spirits. “No, Mom, nobody talks about those things.” She wonders why she is the only one. I tell her she must be special.
It wasn’t until my youngest child started school that I realized that she saw spirits as well. She wasn’t as questioning as her sister. She seemed to know who was hanging around and it didn’t bother her in the least. She told me all sorts of things about the spirit world. I was so curious. How is it that both of my girls turned out this way? I must be special.
