A couple of years ago, my husband was out of town, so I let my almost three year old at the time, sleep in my room with me. As we were laying there talking, lights out, he started saying, "Mom, who's that lady?" I was a bit freaked, and said, "What lady!?" He said, "That lady above us in the pretty white dress?" I freaked out, ran to the light switch, turned on every light in the house, and slept that way all night long. I have no clue if he saw something or was making it up, but about a week later, my son was with his cousin, who is 10 (I didn't tell him the story because he was 10, and why scare a little kid). They were driving along in their van, and my son turned to him and said, "The lady in the pretty white dress is by you and she is smiling." He freaked out and started screaming for his mom.
Who knows, maybe he saw something, maybe it was his imagination, but that's the last I heard about "the lady in the pretty white dress," thank goodness.
Oh sh*t! That would have freaked me out too! I often wondered, when my sons were infants -> toddler age, when they'd look away and smile, if they were looking at something else..I used to think maybe it was Angels. I dunno.
