Another post about finding weird things in the house made me think of this.
I never believed in ghosts until we moved into my current home. We have occurrences all the time like getting locked in the basement or things being thrown off the top of the refrigerator or down the stairs. I've even seen the deadbolt on our door be turned and jiggled with no one there.
We also have noises of coming up the stairs and doors opening etc.. But I know those can be explained alternatively.
For our basement.. We have one of those slide locks that you slide over and push into the notch to secure it.. Well it was installed up side down so the notch is on the top so you slide it over and push the little knob up. We have tried to slam the door and jiggle it etc.. To get it to move on its own and to no avail. I got locked down there with my toddler upstairs and nobody else home. I had to escape through the bulkhead so I saw from the other side that it was fully locked and notched. I yelled to whatever it was and said that they couldn't lock us down there if only one adult was home. They haven't done it since unless two of us are there!
Our heat has been turned all the way up and down when nobody is in the room etc..
Do you believe in ghosts? Or have any stories? What would you do to ensure your little ones safety?
**edit I should say that nothing feels threatening at all. And the activity increased when my husbands father passed away and a small part of his ashes where brought to our home in a small urn.
