  • My great grandmother was a firm believer that all children have an angel. I believe it too. I swear my daughter saw and did the same things. Just tell her its an angel if she asked again-thats what I told my daughter.

  • My son is 16 yrs old and has Down Syndrome. He says a few words, but not enough to really communicate with us. I swear up and down that he sees his angels. He will look up over his shoulder and grin, laugh and jabber. He has done this since he was very small. It's not scary to us. We just know that his angels are with him always.

  • If it is not scaring her it is something good. I've always thought babies could see them

  • As adults we tend to train ourselves NOT to see those things. We all grow up being told they aren't there. Children don't have that and tend to see things we can not... I personally have never stoped believeing and therefore rarely have trouble seeing. But the thing is most of the time spirits or ghoasts are not a negative thing. They are here for a number of reasons and rarely are those reason's negative... If your daughter saw something I wouldn't be afraid. Chances are if there were going to be any bad accorances they would be taking place already... Maybe it was just a loved one checking in...

  • I couldn't help but notice you already labeled whatever she saw as "it.".

    Dude it was 5:30 in the morning, your kid had a waking dream. Take her to the pedi, she could have a sleep condition.

  • my neice used to stare at this one blank white wall at my moms for twenty or thirty mins just babbling and laughing. A lot of the older Mexican Women in my family believe that babies have angles too.

  • My brothers (who are 17 and 19 years younger than I am) and I all grew up in the same house...and, according to my mom, had the same "imaginary friend" until we were about 3 or 4. His name was John and he lived in our room with us and would play games and sing songs with us. My mom thought it was wierd enough, she looked into it ends up, the original owners of the house had a son named John who died in the flu epidemic in the early 1900's.

    Coincidence or not, who knows...either way, creeped my mom out a bit...but in the end her opinion was "He entertained you all enough I've been able to sleep on the weekends for the past 20 years...I'll have to thank him if I ever get to meet him".

  • I'm a firm believer that many children can see the spirit realm. My daughter could see and hear it until she was about 5. And then sometimes I still think she can, she just doesn't want to admit it. I vaguely remember being that age and being able to FEEL them.
    If you're worried about them being bad spirits, you could look into doing a blessing of your home. But I think the next thing she does that, maybe you could try asking her what she sees. I know she's pretty little but find out if it scares her or what? She may just be seeing angels, and there's certainly nothing wrong with that!!

  • I don't believe in that crap...and think there has to be a logical explanation for it. Like a light she saw or a floating piece of cat hair...something like that. I'm not trying to be mean...I just like to look for a logical explanation. If you can find one it might make you feel better.
