Parents Share The Creepy Stuff Their Kids Have Said To Them (29 Tweets)

Children have many faces.

Cute and sweet are certainly two of them.

But then there’s destructively adorable…

And then there’s destructively innocent…

And of course, uber dramatic…

But let’s talk about how absolutely off-the-wall creepy kids can be:

Some people believe kids are perceptive to things beyond what adults can sense, like ghosts or spirits.

Personally, I think kids have such a strange sense of reality and are so impressionable that a new idea can quickly balloon into an alternate universe. They make up weird stories that sound convincing because they believe them.

That’s what I thought until I read this creepy-as-heck thread started by writer Barlow Adams, who shared a story their nine-year-old told them about a woman with no skin on her hands called the Lullaby Lady. Good. God.

The thread soon went viral with replies from people whose kids have similarly made them want to burn the house down then douse the embers with holy water. Before we get into that, I want to share this comment from a Twitter user who claims she ALSO SAW THE LULLABY LADY AS A KID:

Thanks, I hate it. Read the best replies of creepy things kids say. It will either convince you ghosts or real or that you never want to have children.
