I love "creepy things kids say" threads.
I'm pretty sure I've posted about this here... but when my oldest was 3 or so he talked about remembering the time before he was born and that after you die you are with God until it's time for you to be born again as a baby. Wish I could remember the exact words... He seemed to have this intuitive sense of reincarnation. But we are Christians so we don't really talk about reincarnation - especially not to a 3-year-old. So it was surprising to hear this from him. OK... that was not so much creepy, but it was interesting.
Oh, and my middle child used to talk about her "other mommy" that would take come and take care of her at night. She would talk about her when I was tucking her in at night for bed, that after I left her "other mommy" would show up. Now that WAS creepy. I was so glad when she stopped talking about that. (I didn't actively discourage it and worked really hard to not appear creeped out ... but inside I was super creeped out!) This was probably just a preschooler's imagination, but 'yikes' anyway.

There is an unconfirmed story of young boy out walking down a path towards a church on the outside of a village near where I live with his mum and aunt. They had not long moved into the village and were enjoying the tranquility, when suddenly they boy stops and looks up just as they entered the churchyard.
The boy runs over to the end of the church opposite the tower and begins saying 'What have they done to the tower that used to be here?" The mother tells the boy that neither they or he have ever been here before.
" I have!" The boy replies earnestly, "Back when I was an old man I used to climb the tower and ring the bell for the others, where has my tower gone?" At this point the boy just continues to play and frolic like a normal child, and when asked about what he has just said looks confused.
Some months later an archaeological exploration of the church site begins and discovers that the church was built on the site of an old monastery, and, you guessed it, right were the little lad was standing when he made his strange claims, was found the foundational remains of a tower.
Is it true? I don't know, but it makes for a great yarn.

I love these Creepy Kid Quotes, but I can't figure out how someone could possibly compile a list of childrens' quotes that long.
How does one catalog that many short anecdotes from that many people?

My daughter stopped talking about the lady up high when she was around 3. Several years later (age 6), I asked her if she still saw this lady, and she had no memory of it at all. Just something in her imagination? An ability of the very young to see things that they lose as they get older? Who knows...
