When my youngest granddaughter was small and I was minding her, I put on one of the music boxes to amuse her.
She said " I was married in 1913 and I remember that music".
She also asked what was my husband's mother's name again and said " Oh yes that's right' and talked about someone wearing a blazer.
What was the tune?

I suspect humour but isn't a blazer part of a school uniform? On the subject of which, whatever happened to school caps - are they still around?

Yup, I used to wear a blazer to school, primary and secondary.

It was 14 years ago so I'm not positive about the tune as I have several music boxes.
I have a feeling it was Sur le pont D'Avignon as the tinkly rhythm seems about right.
I used to wear a blazer to school but I think they were worn a lot in maybe the 1920's?

I had to wear a blazer and cap until I switched schools at the age of 13. We also weren't allowed to use a sports bag and had to have a brief case instead. We used to take our caps off walking to and from school so we didn't get into fights with lads from another nearby school ... the only problem with that was if a prefect spotted you not wearing your cap to and from school, you were given a detention so you couldn't really win either way.

I've got a friend who in the past was an occasional poster here. Shortly after she and her family moved into a new rental place in Melbourne, her son - who would have been about two at the time - came up with this gem.

"There was a man in the wall" (in his bedroom).

My friend "Oh. Was he a nice man?"

Kid: "No. He was broken."

She later had a couple of incidents where she thought she saw a figure standing over her child's bed, but then there was of course nothing when she went to investigate.

You'll be pleased to hear they have moved now!

A clue that many of these childhood utterances may be no more that an inability to communicate clearly comes from my elderly mother's second childhood.

As mentioned often on here she has dementia and has had for the last 5 years. In the first two she was frequently casually refering to dead relatives as if they were alive and in the house, as well as other visitations.

I was particularly spooked when she repeatedly spoke of the little woman..and of the old man who sat in the chair saying nothing.

I excitedly came to report these visions onhere when I paused, thought, and asked her..little woman..old man in chair..."do you mean Mrs Brown?"

"Yeah"

From the first link.

Jmersh 312 points 3 years ago*

'My wife was getting my 2yr old son up one morning. He was standing in his bed/crib. As she said good morning and walked over to him he picked up her shirt a little and crooked his head to the side. She asked him what he was doing and he said, "looking for my baby sister in your tummy." She laughed it off as a weird kid imagination thing. We found out later that at the time she was 2 weeks pregnant and it was, in fact, a girl. We are due in September. We had never really had the talk about where babies come from nor did we talk about having another child at all around him. So spooky.'

My daughter (almost 5 years old) was playing with her babydoll on the couch next to me. I wasnt really listening to her to her chatter but I perked up when I heard her say 'This is George Washington. When you see him, don't be scared, just say thank you and tell him what you like about him.) I didn't say anything but I was confused where she had learned about George Washinton. Were they talking about him at school?
About a half hour later I casually asked, 'Hey hon, who's George Washington?' She replied to me 'He's a man who lives in the sky who did a nice thing for us so we have to say thank you. But I can visit him or I can jump up and pull him down.' I think my daughter is getting confused about some stuff..lol
She has said some creepier stuff when she was a baby I'll have to put up a little later when I've got a minute.

Okay when my daughter was very small, still a baby eating in the high chair or sitting on the floor, she would stare up above our heads at the ceiling behind us. Enough so that my husband and I would always look and ask each other what she was staring at. This was in a very 'active' apartment.
Later when she was about 18 months to 2 years old we were driving past an old church/cemetary and my daughter pipes up 'the babies are crying' and said nothing else. About this same time, she was staying the night with my mom and my mother had her pack-n-play set up next to the couch by the stairs in the living room. She said my daughter started to try dragging the playpen to the opposite side of the room. She asked my daughter why she was doing this and she replied 'the man up there scares me' as she pointed to the corner above the couch. My mom said it gave her a cold chill as her house is pretty 'active' (my husband and I had moved from the apartment a year before and not told my daughter about the staring).
She is ok now but my daughter also used to complain about monsters trying to get her all the time even in the daytime. So far these are the creepiest things I remember her doing.
