Sometimes It's called domestic blindness and it happens to the best of us.
However since you and your son experienced it also, that raises questions. And your late wife must've been cheeky as you tell your story you seem as a man not frightened and unlike other stories some folk who have had 'encounters' feel a sense of love and familiarity.
Maybe if you say Hello you might get a response.

I believe you. This stuff is real. I have had many experiences throughout my life and never really know why. I think you should take comfort in it.

It is not easy for them but sometime's loved one's are allowed to let there family know that they are still with them, this was really a private matter for you and your son so should not be aired but I am sure she will forgive you though it may mean that she will now not be allowed to communicate in this way again - balance and all of that.
She loves you and your son very much to still be watching over you and may now be acting as a guardian spirit to her son as well.
Just take it as a gift from God to let you know she is still there.
Acts 16, Paul meets a fortune teller, a slave, who earned her masters a lot of money by fortune-telling (verse 16). The Bible attributes her ability to having a demonic spirit, which Paul was able to cast out of her by the name of Jesus Christ (verse 18). The Bible does not mention the tools the slave girl used to tell the future, but, whether tea leaves or dice or lots or cards of some type, the items used in that context brought honor to demonic spirits.

Nothing against the OP, but a comment about the deceased coming back to visit/haunt the living.
In my heart of hearts I really want to believe it does happen, but the logical side of me doesn't think it does. The reason is, of all the millions upon millions of people who have passed over the centuries one has to believe many of them passed with unfinished business, some last statement or gesture they really needed to express before they passed. If it were possible to return from the afterlife it would happen all the time. In fact, it seems it would be so frequent it would be a well documented occurrence and not something of mystery, conspiracy and blurry photos.
Again, I really want to believe it happens, because I personally have some unfinished business I'd like to express with some who have passed, but alas I've never managed to get even the remotest sign it's possible.
And, this brings up another thought on the subject...what really happens to consciousness after death? In my mind, I think the energy which is consciousness just gets dispersed into the background energy. I believe it must just lose it's individual identity and becomes part of a primordial soup, a savings account of sorts, upon which future consciousness draws as a new life is created. I realize these thoughts are at odds with many religious beliefs particularly those endorsing concepts of Heaven, Purgatory and Hell. I can accept that, but it's what my thoughts are.

Some call this an ''aport''.. Where teleport means the instantaneous transportation of a person from one location to another, an ''aport'' is the instantaneous transportation of an inanimate object in the same manner.
It is my understanding that aports are rare. I have been told that they are so rare because the amount of energy required for the transition is intense.
I really do not know much more about this and cannot even say for sure it it is real. However, back in my day I did have an ongoing experience that can be interpreted in this way. If you like here is a thread I posted on the topic a few years ago.
Basically the lesson I took away from that experience was ''here it is, take it for what it is worth to you and do not depend upon it happening all the time.''

I'm not sure if I believe it.
I lost both my mother and my sister recently and despite looking for and asking for signs, there just aren't any. I do believe I had a couple of signs from each of them around the time of their passing but nothing crazy.
I am not taking away from your experience. I'd say if you believe it, than it's true.
But I also believe the mind is really powerful... like one time I couldn't find my glasses and was searching frantically for them. The problem is that I am totally blind without them so I couldn't see clearly to even try to find them! I was freaking out and yelling and going on and on at my husband to help me find them so I could see, when he stopped me and said "honey, go look in the mirror". I felt my face and realized I was wearing them already, and my eye sight immediately became perfect.
