“ Can You Believe It? ”
“..what...wha...What?” I half screamed.
“It’s Sean, and he’s calling for you.” my wife sleepily exclaimed.
“Can’t you go?”I begged - “I’m asleep.”
“No!”came the dragon voice of the delicate beautiful woman whom was ‘sleep-interrupted’ next to me,
“I’m asleep too!”was her final answer.
Forfeiting my warm bed, I hurriedly made my way to my first born’s room where he was readily waiting with his out stretched arms for one of his
parent’s to rescue him from the nightmare that so readily invaded his , and now his parent’s slumber.
While wiping his tears with his jammy’s sleeve, I gently deposited him between my wife and myself in the queen sized water bed generally reserved
for my spouse and I.. Listening to his tears subside to muffled sniffles while being caudled by his mother, I readily drift back to slumber~land.
That would be just one of the many sleep disturbed nights experienced by many parents - except, this happened to my toddler son every night like clock
work. And there were nights when our two year old son didn’t go back to sleep right away, staying awake in fear - crying long into the wee hours of
the morning, depriving one of us of much needed shut eye.
The nightmares traumatized our son to the point where, we as concerned parents - decided to take our child to a reputable pediatrician.
The good Doctor described that our son was experiencing what he termed as ‘night terror’s.’
The doctor had no explanation for our son’s nightmares as he came from a regular well adjusted loving relationship with no marital problems between
His remedy to the situation was not therapy but instead to offer a prescription of sleeping pills.
Being what I believe to be a concerned parent, I quickly vetoed that situation and we as a family ‘tuffed’ it out until the night terrors ended!
‘All for one and one for all’ for this clan!
The nightly intrusions lasted from when was my son was two and half until he was three and a half, approximately nine to eleven months and now my son
is twenty seven with his own family consisting of a wife and three children. Two boys with the youngest being a girl. Time does indeed fly my friends,
indeed it does!
Here I am years down the road now revisiting this memory as I recall questioning my son about what it was that he was experiencing that terrified him
His admission to me was that “frogmen” would come through the ceiling and take him away.
He also once told me that one night when he awoke in our bed with us, the closet door was open and two frogmen were standing there watching us.
My significant other, my rib whom I call “swimbo” (she who must be obeyed) concluded that our son’s night terrors stemmed from a serious case of
“Alien’s”. Stumped as we were because we had no idea how our toddler would have known about Aliens and where he got the idea to depict them as
Well as life would have it, my wife and I had another child, a daughter - which seemed to help dissipate the night terrors! And then the tribe
relocated to a different city.
Actually to the country in a big farm house with one hundred and seventy five acres of farmland. One hundred and twenty five workable and fifty of
A farmer worked the land while I rented the farmhouse with full use of the property, with the guarantee that we wouldn’t harm or interfere with the
farmers corn crop’s.
It was a nice place for my children to grow and experience. They both have fond memories of their youth being spent there.
The night terrors seemed to just fall off and life got to be, dare I say - regular.
It didn’t seem to bother him growing up as I have always been interested in the paranormal activity and he himself use to tease his sister that the
lights in the field at night weren’t actually lights from a farmers tractor but were in fact lights from U.F.O.’s coming to abduct them.”They
were just waiting until everyone fell asleep”, he would tell her.
To this day my son still says it was frogmen he saw as a child and he has absolutely no interest in aliens other than when his old man says something
deemed crazily down the rabbit hole and off the wall.
Now my daughter on the other hand won’t even watch a sci-fi movie with me, scares her she says - but she’ll watch zombie movies, go figure!?!
What’s up with the youth of today?
Well, I would just like to relate that I’ve investigated much paranormal over the years - as an arm chair critic, from Area 51 and Crop Circles to
Aliens and the Lunar and Mars anomalies and much to my dismay - I’m still waiting to be abducted! (..it’ll happen soon ~ I can feel it!)
Here’s what I find fascinating - why would an obviously intelligent superior species travel possibly quantum physics unknown in mileage to a planet
where the inhabitants have always killed everything they don’t like, fear or understand, where they ‘ve been killing each other since they
I have never given much belief that superior beings would have the interest in abducting one of our planets alpha life forms. That’s seems
They may have a passing interest in the planet itself, but interaction with our species is accompanied by a “..does not play well with others”
That being said, you might find this story inquisitive to say the least..
One day recently when I was chatting with my son, he told me that during breakfast - his eldest son related a dream that he had the night before, and
that he had been riding in a flying saucer.
The next time I saw my grandson, having the diversive curiosity I’ve been blessed with, naturally I gently questioned him about his dream.
He told me it wasn’t a dream, that it was in fact real!
That exclamation in itself, required that my curiosity to be fed, so I pressed on with my gentle interrogation technique.
My grandson shares a room with his six year old younger brother and so I ventured the question; “Patrick?” “Yea pappa...?” was my eight year
old grandson’s response, not looking up from his hand held Nintendo game. “Did David go with you in the U.F.O.?” I queried half anticipating his
answer to be something along the lines of ; “..I don’t remember or..just a plain resounding - No.”
What he said next ended my questions.
He stopped playing his all important, ‘the world’s gonna end if I don’t get to the next level’ video game, looked me unwaveringly in the eye
and in a matter of fact voice, exclaimed - “You know papa, you were there too!!!.”
Can you believe it? ..out of the mouth’s of babes.
