Ghost Train

Ghost Train

This event only happened last night.


I have just finished reading the bedtime story books that Evelyn wanted me to read to her. As soon as I closed the book up on the last page, she climbed out of bed and perched through the window.

“I didn’t see the ghost, or the witch yesterday.”

“Okay… Have you see them before?” I was a little puzzled and a little concerned.


“Where did you see them?” I pressed on for answers.

“In a train.” 

“Okay… why are they on the train?” Yeah! Why! Tell me! (We leave near a train line.)

“They live on the train.”

“Are you scared of them?” Perhaps, she see ghosts!


“Are you friends with them?” I had to make sure.


“Okay… what are their names?” Prove it!

“They are call – Halloween Ghost and Halloween Witch.”

“Okay – lights out now. Time for bed.”


Evelyn will be three next Sunday. I find having a conversation with her at this stage a little nutty as fruitcake. lol!

    Kids are great aren’t they?! Keira used to tell her teachers (when she was 4) that she had been to Australia with Winnie! My great-grandmother was called Winnie – no idea where this came from but it was spooky! Sarah #FabFridayPost

    She is the same age as the twin. Aren’t they wacky little things at this age?

    I love their imagination. We put a fairy door in Erin’s room and she told me that she saw the fairy come in the night and that the fairy left her a cupcake and a kit kat!! #fabfriday

    Brilliant! Children are either really perceptive or have a fabulous imagination! Either is amazing really. #fabfridaypost

    Hahah this is so sweet, I love the little stories they tell! Every morning Megan wakes up and tells me about her friend the dragon whose castle she goes to visit, I love those moments and I’ll miss them so much when she grows! #fabfridaylinky

    My youngest is almost 6 and I still have some of these strange conversations with her! It’s fun to hear others kiddo stories too!

    Ha ha, my son used to come out with all sorts at this age. There were conversations about a man looking through the window and another time he called me in the night to tell me he was scared of the man, when I asked what man he pointed behind me and said ‘that man’, needless to say that one scared me half to death. Thankfully it was all in his imagination!

      OMG! That’s really scary! Oooo! Thank goodness it was just his imagination! xx

    Peachy isn’t at this stage yet. Apart from a couple of words she doesn’t talk yet, but she still managed to scare me sometimes. On occasion when I’m changing her diaper she looks behind me, just over my shoulder, and starts talking her baby language to someone. I turn expecting to see my husband but there’s never anyone there. Kind of creepy sometimes. Sorry for the late comment. #FabFridayPost

      That is creepy! I bet she will have lots of moment like this when she gets older. xx
