that has been "living" in my moms house since as long as anyone can remember(including the previous owners) Of course now my daughter will not sleep in the bedroom. She has been camping out on the floor on another mattress in front of the wood stove. Or sleeping on the couch. But she said she saw a "little girl in a long dress" watching her. I grew up with Amanda, the name she was given. So I was wondering when she was going to show herself to my daughter. I was actually wondering if my daughter was going to even be able to "see" her. Since my sister never did. Although she made herself known to her and everyone else in the house frequently when we were kids. After talking with with my daughter and explaining the whole "ghost" thing and that Amanda had been sort of a guardian for us kids for YEARS Sarah doesnt seem to be afraid anymore. I spoke with my mom today and she said that Sarah took her stuffed animals and her flashlight and went looking for Amanda upstairs today. We only have the 3 bedrooms on the second floor. They are all in a row except for the room that was the nursery when we were kids. The one my daughter used to sleep in when she was there. You have to walk through the one other room to get to the next. Yeah, growing up I had NO privacy at all. Sarah also said that she felt Amanda touch her shoulder and saw her smile at her. So with luck the kid will grow up knowing that the little girl ghost in the long dress isnt going to harm her an ddidnt mean to scare her. She just wanted to see her, and see if Sarah could see her back. I am torn if I want her to have the "gift" that I do, that my dad had. And to embrace it. Or to be like my sister and ignore it as much as possible and deny deny deny LOL With another baby on the way.. my sister is due in March. I am sure that Amanda is just warming up. It has been a LONG time since there have been kids in the house. And from what we learned from the town hall records Sarah is just now 2 years younger than Amanda was at the time of the fire and her death. All the excitement of active kid and another one on the way is making her happy. which I think is more than just a little cool.
