Family Reunion

One day when my daughter was 2 we were having a typical ‘terrible twos’ moment. She was throwing a bit of a tantrum for about 5-10 minutes and we couldn’t get her under control. At some point, she, rather suddenly, stopped and started staring at the wall. She then started lightly giggling. It was weird, one second she is crying and screaming and the next she is smiling and happy.

Then she starts saying ‘funny lady’ over and over. We asked her who she saw and she pointed to the wall and again said ‘the funny lady.’ When we asked her to describe who she saw she described my deceased grandmother, I mean exactly described her. She had never met her, and I don’t think had ever even seen a picture, not that a 2-year-old could remember a picture. I am not much a believer in the paranormal, but I know for sure that my daughter got a chance to meet my Mom and that makes me happy.

When I told this story to my parents, they didn’t seem as shocked as I was. When I tried to get a response from them, they looked at me and said ‘I guess you don’t remember that you met your [deceased] grandfather when you were 3. The same exact thing happened to you 30 years ago.’
