Not Your Typical Babysitting Night

Posted on January 4, 2008

This happened about 10 years ago, so 1998!

My parents had these friends that moved to this amazing house on the island where my family cottage is. They had two young kids at the time. Madison who was maybe three and Thomas who was Ten. I had taken care of these kids plenty of time before, just not in this house.

These people are quite wealthy and as I said the house was amazing so you can imagine what the house looked like. They had this grandfather clock (which I hate), you know the ones that ring every 15 minutes! Those are spooky on there own in a huge house.

Any ways, it was late and I was putting the kids to bed after a movie. I took both kids to their rooms which were just down the hallway from each other. I went back out into the living room to watch T.V until the parents came home.

It was maybe a half an hour and I could hear Tom calling me. I went to his room and he had a toy in his hand, some boy toy that makes sounds. It was going off like crazy, and we couldn’t shut it off. So I flipped it over and took the batteries out of it.

I didn’t even get out of the room and the thing started going off again (with no batteries). I asked him how to turn it off and he had no idea because he said it was not his toy, it was here when they moved in.

I threw the game in his closet, and told Tom to come out and sleep on the couch, mainly because I was freaked and didn’t want to be alone! We didn’t even get to the living room and Madison started screaming (like I have never heard a kid scream before) Tom and I both ran to her room.

We got in the door way and Madison was standing up in her crib grabbing the bars. Her face was so red. I reached in and grabbed her and we booked it out of the room! The whole time I had her in my arms she was screaming, “don’t let them have me, don’t let them have me!” I swear she was seeing someone or something the whole time because her eyes never moved from the hallway.

I called my parents to come and get all of us. Tom, Madison and I all slept in my room that night. The next day when their parents came to get them I heard their mom say that she had notice this being moved around the house and earlier that day Madison was trying to play with that game and it would not work!
