The Ghost Whisperer

Those of you that follow me on Twitter have probably heard about Sam.

Sam is Vista’s special friend.  And we’re pretty sure he’s a ghost.  Yeah, I’m living in a real life haunted house.

I can remember vividly the first time Sam showed up.  We we all  sitting in the living room and all  of the sudden Vista started to talk to ‘Sam’.  Sam was apparently standing right behind me as I sat on the couch *shudder*.   Vista was happily chattering to him and trying to hand him things.

Bil and I just looked at each other.  And decided she had an imaginary friend.  How nice for her.

But on the off chance, I called my mom and asked her if the name ‘Sam’ rang any bells for her.  As we ran through the family roster of the dead we came up blank.

I was still clinging tightly to the fact that this was an imaginary friend.  Perhaps, I reasoned, she’s talking about Sam from the Wiggles.  She loved watching the Wiggles at that point.  Perhaps she had just picked that name.  So, I put the Wiggles show on and when Sam showed up, I pointed to the TV and said “Look!  Sam!  Is that your Sam?”

I’m pretty sure Vista is going to be really good at that ‘OMG you are a complete moron’ look when she’s a teenager, because she threw that look at me and slowly explained to her idiot mother “Sam on TV,” pointing to the tele.  “Not Sam,” pointing to the other end of the room.

Well, fine.  Nix that idea.  But, I still wasn’t giving up on the imaginary friend idea.

Until the morning I went to get Vista dressed.  I conversationally asked her “Where’s Sam?”

She pointed to the floor next to her.

“Oh, he’s sitting next to you?” I said, very pleased with my deductive reasoning skills.

I got the ‘you’re an idiot’ look again and she patiently explained “No.  In ground…. buried there.”

I have to tell you, hearing your two year old tell you about someone being buried in the ground (they certainly don’t teach that on Dora or Sesame Street) is kind of a conversation killer.

So I changed gears.  Fine, Sam probably wasn’t just an imaginary friend if he’s buried in the ground.  So we played 20 questions with a 2 year old with limited vocabulary.

Q: Is Sam a boy or a girl?

A: Boy

Q: Is Sam a little boy like [cousin] or is he old like Daddy?

A: Like Daddy

Q:  Is he old like Grandpa or just old like Daddy?

A: Old like Daddy.

Alright, so we had a male ghost, somewhere in the 20 – 50 age range.

Q: Is he wearing a hat?

A: No.  He…  *at this point she started point to her forehead*

Q: Does he have an owie on his head?  A bandaid?

A: No…  *it took a few days, but we finally figured out that Vista was trying to tell us he was wearing a headband of some sort, after she started wearing insisting on wearing her hairbands around her forehead rather than to hold her hair back*

We continued playing these games.  Showing pictures, asking questions, guessing answers.  Near as we can tell, Sam is an adult male, Native American, ghost… who likes to swear.

Oh, did I forget that part?

Yeah, I came in one day to get Vista up from a nap and she was happily chattering to Sam.  And they were talking about ‘sunny beaches’

I sent Vista out of the room to go play in the living room, and turned to (where I thought) Sam was.  I gently explained to him ‘Listen here you son of a bitch.  You teach my daughter to fucking swear and I will exorcise your ghosty ass.  Are we clear?’

I’m assuming he got the message, because there’s been no more mention of sunny beaches or any beaches for that matter.

But then, a few months ago, Sam went away suddenly.  Vista explained he had gone to the mountains for a while.  I smiled and nodded like this made sense and figured maybe we were rid of our ghost for good.  Not that I really minded him.  I mean, he seemed to be friendly enough.  And Vista certainly enjoyed talking to him.  On days when he would chat with her as she woke up from a nap I could here fits of giggles.  But still.  A haunted house really doesn’t draw friends to want to come over for coffee.

Months went by, and no Sam.  Until about a week ago.

Vista woke up and started talking about Sam again.  I figured, not a big deal.  So he’s back.  Good for him.

But, something’s changed.  Or rather he’s changed.  He seems to want to be more helpful.  Which is nice… but, dude, it’s creeping me the fuck out.

The first incident was the other day when Vista and I were in the living room.  She was dancing around and I said “Should mommy put some music on so you can dance?”

As soon as I said that the DVD player turned on.  Now, that, in and of itself, I could ignore.  But we have one of those fancy players that also acts as a radio tuner and you can hook your ipod into it.  We have never use the radio part (because the reception is crap and while I’m pretty sure there’s something we could do to fix that, we’ve never bothered and just don’t use it), and very rarely use the ipod dock, so it’s always set to play DVDs.  Except when it turned on, it was set to a radio station playing music.

OK, I must have sat on the remote or something and accidentally turned it on.

Except when I stood up to look, I saw the remote sitting across the room from Vista and I.

I looked at V.  “Where’s Sam?”

“He just went outside”

“Yeah I bet he did.  Tell ghosty boy to quit touching Mommy’s technology”

I walked over and shut the DVD player off.  I wasn’t in the mood for dancing anymore.

Then the other day, I went to put Vista down for a nap.  She laid down in her crib and I was tucking her in asking her if she wanted me to put her white noise machine on for her… when her Winnie the Pooh music box turned on by itself.  Neither Vista nor I were anywhere near it.  And not only that, it’s not a little push button switch to turn on, that I could have hit accidentally this time.  It’s a slider.  And to put it on the song and setting that it was on the slider has to be slid down from it’s off position at the top, alllllll the way down to the bottom position.

I turned it off.

“Where’s Sam?”

She pointed to the end of her crib.

“Could you tell him to stop doing stuff like that please.  It’s creeping Mama out.”

I got a nod from her.  I finished tucking her in and let her sleep.

Oh, but the best was yet to come.

This morning I woke up to hear Vista chattering through the baby monitor (Yes, she’s 2.5 and we still use a baby monitor.  Don’t judge).

I looked at the clock.  7:00am.  Bil would have gone to work a few hours ago.  So it was time to get up and grab a quick shower before I went in to get her.

Until I heard a male voice respond to one of Vista’s chattering questions.

A voice that I didn’t recognize.

A voice that certainly wasn’t her father’s.

I went racing out of my room and threw open her door…. only to find her alone in her crib.  With no one else in the room.

“Hi Mama!”

“Hi baby.  Who were you talking to just now?”

“Sam….and my dollies”

Holy fuck.  Had I just heard her ghost over the baby monitor???  Are you fucking kidding me??

I’ve come to the conclusion we have one of two things going on here.

Either

  1. Vista has a friendly ghost who watches over her and likes to make sure she’s happy.  And who now seems to be able to turn on things in the house and make himself heard…..or
  2. I’m loosing my ever living fucking mind

I’m kinda leaning towards number two.

    So, um, yeah I hope Sam isn’t watching you and Bil get it on. Bwahahahaha! I am an awful friend. What I meant was I hope he doesn’t start helping you in the shower.

    @Miss, Oh yeah, it was clear as day. Vista was going through asking her dolls “Are you OK dollie?” (she does this as she lines them up in her crib). Then I heard her say “Are YOU okay?” and a male voice replied “Yeah. I’m okay”
    I ran through my head at that moment if something else could have made a sound that would sound like that… but it was too clear and too definite.
    He said something else too, but I didn’t catch it because at that point I was flying out of my room over to her bedroom. lol

    @Jenn, Whoa. That is amazing. I vote setting up a voice recorder in her room, just to see what you might pick up. He seems friendly enough. Or call Ghost Hunters!

    @Miss,
    One of my friends actually just pinged me on Facebook. I guess he knows some guys that are into the whole paranormal hunting stuff, so he thinks they might be interested in coming over and setting some equipment up. So I told him, go for it. Might be interesting to see if they find anything.

    You are either not as neurotic as I am or drink more wine. Maybe both? I don’t doubt for a second that some(thing?) has taken a liking to your daughter. Music on? Ok creepy. Hearing voices? Ok, I’m moving. Maybe some of your daughters quirkyness also allows her to have heightened senses. Does she see anyone else ever? If so, it might be time to cash in on that. You’re sitting on a gold mine.

    Jenn Reply:

    @thenextmartha,

    The very first time she saw Sam, there was another ghost with him whose name was ‘Aunt Marie’. Aunt Marie showed up the first two times with Sam and then never again.
    But other than that, she’s never seen (or at least never spoken about) anyone else.

    Yeah, I sometimes wonder if Vista really grasps the fact that he’s not just like other people she knows. Like trying to hand him stuff the first time she saw him. How do you explain to a 2yr old the difference between ghost and human? lol

  • I totally believe in ghosts. Always have, although I’ve never seen one. You should watch that show about the psychic British lady who talks to them and finds out why they stay in certain places. Sounds like a peaceful ghost to me, but still. If it doesn’t bother you I would just be fine with it, but if it does, maybe ask an expert. Either way, Vista might be pychic they seem to gravitate to people that are. Worst part of that is she might be able to read YOUR mind. LOL

    Aaaaaand, congratulations, you just scared the crap out of me with the ghost-on-the-baby-monitor thing.

    Although, we had a baby-sitter who said that when her daughter was little, she heard a man on the baby monitor in the middle of the night & went flying down to her baby’s room. Turned out there was a cop car outside and his dispatch radio was broadcasting on the baby monitor. But if you heard a guy responding to Vista? Um, yeah, that’s different.

    I would totally be putting my house on the market if it was me.

    @cindy w,

    That and we live out in a very small town. It’s unusual to see a cop car out this way. But that thought did cross my mind. Like you said though, it was a response to her, so that’s where the creep factor comes in. Hard to dismiss something like that.

  • Magda says:

    Man, this is some scary stuff! It’s one thing to hear creaks or have stuff turn on. Voices are something completely different! It will be interesting to see what they find. It does sound like Sam is an ok guy, if he was a bad person I’m sure Vista would have let you know about it. What the history of the area you live in? Would that explain Sam being Native American? Hope you get some answers! Also can I come ghost hunting at your house I totally love that stuff!

    Jenn Reply:

    @Magda,

    We live in a fairly new area (our house is less than 10yrs old). Built on old farm land.

    But before the farmers came? Quite possible we’re sitting on indian land.

  • OMG. This is scary. I would have literally dropped dead after hearing that.

  • jenn- i have read this post repeatedly, not quite knowing how to respond because i can’t quite tell if you’re like freaked out freaked out, or actually intrigued. and given the jenn that i know, i would think that you would be intrigued until it gets to the point of messing with V and then get freaked out, and it sounds like it has reached that point.

    *sigh* that being said… if you know someone with paranormal gear, it would make for an AWESOME blog series… “the series of sam…” (i almost want to call him “sort of sam”).

    i had a good friend in high school who had a ghost living in her house. they never named the ghost, nor was the ghost’s genitalia distinguished. but my friend would talk about their ghost at school amongst the 3 minute locker time we had before our next class and none of us believed her. so like all awesome high school girls, we organize a whole ouiji board, “the craft” movie watching sleepover at her house one night.

    nothing happens.

    we all think she’s full of shit, and of course being all of 16 years old, this was MAJOR DRAMA. so…. i’m over at my friend’s house one afternoon, weeks later. my younger brother and her younger sister needed a ride to cross country practice. friend says to me, “ok, the ghost has been around today. let’s test it.” with an eye roll, i agree.

    all 4 of us go into the kitchen, take a full cereal box of kix and dump it on the floor. cereal was everywhere. my friend and i drive our sibblings to practice, arrive back at her house and the cereal was back in the box and the box was sitting back on the kitchen counter. both of her parents worked full time. no one else had been in the house. the dogs couldn’t even had eaten it because the cereal was BACK IN THE BOX.

    so at that point, i’m super intrigued… and i want to test this sucker even more. so my friend and i turn on their oven to broil. we go out in the backyard, hang out for 1/2 an hour or so, come back in and the oven is off.

    i don’t believe it. i think something has sort circuited, there’s no way the ghost turned the oven off.

    my friend turns on the burners on the stove… gas burners. flames. we turn it on low because we’re not THAT stupid, and we just go in the other room, not outside.

    we wait a couple of minutes because truly we don’t want to set the house on fire.

    and yup, when we go back in the kitchen, the burner is on “off.”

    sooooooo……… do i believe in paranormal experiences??? i dunno…. but i’ve seen some freaky weird stuff that is just straight up bizarre. that’s the only “experience” i have had with a “ghost” or any sort.

    but i can’t help but think that if the magoo were to start talking to me about a ghost, i would lose my shit.

    then again, i’m already batshit crazy, so i ain’t got much to lose.

    totally looking forward to updates though!!!

  • I’m intrigued. And a little creeped out. We believe we do have a presence in this house (possibly the former owner…terminal cancer patient who committed suicide…plus our house is a nearly 100 years old farmhouse) but he/it is nowhere near as active as Sam appears to be.
    Children and animals in general are supposed to be more receptive to the spirit world. I wonder if V’s medical issues make her more “open” to that sort of thing?
    I hope that Sam continues to be friendly, and that the situation doesn’t escalated.

But every time I go down, there’s nothing.

    Amazing post. My son used to talk about the “man in hats” and then, when he grew up some, came to tell me it was “the man standing by the hats” and pointed at the hat rack next to the doorway of his room. He also described him (black hair, in jeans, just standing there) and seemed a little scared of him. I told him to tell him to go away if he was scaring him. But promised that everything in our house is here to protect him. (Positive thinking, right?) I never heard about the man again. Being a mom, trying to help your kid navigate our world is tough enough. This just throws our protective tendencies and mommy worries for a keee-razy loop. I mean, how do we protect/help them with something we know so little about? Curious to hear more – and good luck!

    @Caroline,

    See, I think I would find that WAY more creepy. Sam, I think, is less threatening because he talks with Vista and she likes him and happy when he’s around.
    But some creep-o standing by a hat rack? Yeah, I’d probably be ordering up a vat of holy water and a priest.

    @Jenn, cracking up. TRUE. Very true. Altho he has since gone. I think. Soooo… am I kidding myself? I forgot to mention that I saw something (all black, solidish) standing by my bedroom door (after hearing footsteps) a week before my mother died. I’d just like to think its someone in our fam looking over us. Right? …RIGHT?! *checking over shoulder* Totally checking back here to see how the paranormal dudes go.

    This exact thing has happened to us. My 2 year old son has a friend also. Those electronic things are what freaks us out. Every once and a while I think I hear a voice on the monitor(my 6 year old still has hers, so no judging here!), but just chalk it up to alcohol or exhaustion. It seems to get more active around special dates in our family and T says it’s a man. Could be a few people.

    I even checked out some paranormal groups and they are willing to come to the house for free but I backed off. I started to think, right now it’s just a guess that we have a presence, I sure as hell don’t want to confirm it!

    Good luck with Sam. As long as he is nice to Vista I guess it’s fine. She’ll grow out of being able to see him eventually. We all do or so I’m told.

  • jaelithe says:

    I am a total, total skeptic about things like this. Always looking for Occam’s Razor explanations, and always questioning my own perception of things. I wouldn’t say I believe in ghosts.

    And yet, once when I was in a 100 year old house owned by a friend’s family I heard old-fashioned music in their dining room when there was nothing to play it. And once when I was totally alone in another very old house, I watched a faucet in a bathroom turn on by itself and when I got up and walked toward the bathroom to investigate, the door to the bathroom shut by itself.

    And my son goes on a lot about “The Invisible People” who live in our house who he says he hears talking at night.

    I’ve never been able to totally explain any of those things.

    I guess life would be boring if we could explain everything.

    This freaked me the eff out! (Mostly bc he’s talking to your kid.) I have another friend that lived w/ghost(s) for years. They would do the electronic thing, lights were popular too but their favorite was rearranging furniture.

    I guess as long as Sam seems harmless it’s OK. I would certainly be pumping V to get info about him & maybe why he’s sticking around. Or maybe put on the monitor on & ask him yourself.

    I think the advice to keep a journal (and maybe start a book) as well as having some of those ghost hunters come by is a great idea. But then sometimes ignorance is bliss too. ;-)
