  • I did when mine were little and when they got older I would often here "mom" in one of their voices. They'd either be asleep or outside and I would swear I heard them. It has happened a few times since they have all grown up and moved out as well. I think our brains just get so used to a sound or a voice and we hear memories.

  • Yes, lol! I asked a question like this once bc I thought I was crazy or something. My son is 17 months and I still hear them while he's asleep sometimes. What's really weird is when my husband and I both hear the phantom cries at the same time!

  • I hear it with my dd also.....My mom told me one night I was out babysitting, approx 30miles away. The woman's kids I was watching 2 of them, "forgot" to mention she had a homicidal EX hubby who thought if he can't have her, nobody will. Long story short, he apparently thought she was home and started too throw rocks, beer bottles, whatever he could find. Then i heard the police sirens, and I didn't call them cause I was in the closet with the kids. As u can imagine I was scared really F'ing scared! my mom told me she called them! She said she suddenly just felt something, didn't argue with it and called the state police, whoi thankfully did know about the violent Ex hubby. Has anyone here happen to you?
