Something Spooky This Way Comes

I admit to being something of a paranormal junkie. As critical as I am of reality television, I love me some Ghost Hunters. So, it's not surprising that when something unusual happens around the house, my mind tends to wander in that direction. The events of the past couple of days have me thinking that perhaps I need to call TAPS.

When Sophie is sleeping, I leave the door to her room open a couple of inches. This allows me to hear her and also lets the cats get into her room without causing a ruckus. The last couple of days, each time I have gone into Sophie's room after a nap or in the morning, her door has been wide open. Although creeped out a little, I have attributed this to the cats.

However, this morning between the last time I went in there and when I returned, I knew where the cats were the entire time. And it wasn't anywhere near her room. Yet, the door was open. For a moment, I thought maybe there was something supernatural happening. That the baby had "woken" something up, as seems to happen, according to Grant and Jason. But then I shooed those thoughts away and decided that either I hadn't closed the door or Neil had opened it on his way in to the bathroom.

I decided that whatever the case, it was time for some investigating. So I set up the camera to catch the perpetrator, be it earthly or not, in the act.

Warning: this is definitely not for the squeamish.

I had no idea she could reach! Sorry the video is so dark, but it was SUPPOSED to be naptime. And yes, this is what I spend my Friday nights doing. Quelle loser.

  10. LOL...isn't that cute!!

    I too love the paranormal...so much so that I creeped myself out one day when I got hooked on YouTube watching "ghostly" videos...so much so that I couldn't go in the basement and finish the laundry for 2 hours... I did however admit it to my DH cause I always admit when I've been a dork!
