Yes it's a TAAT, but I know I'm not the only one who's curious about all these stories about DC who talk about their "other Mummies"

Am I???

Haven't a clue what you are talking about, but it sounds both like utter twattery and also not an aibu.

grocklebox Sat 24-Jan-15 00:02:28

(the woo thing sounds like twattery, I'm not calling you a twat, to be clear)

HealthyChanges Sat 24-Jan-15 00:02:42

What?

TwitterWooooo Sat 24-Jan-15 00:03:01

What's "inner woo" and are you talking about ?

TwitterWooooo Sat 24-Jan-15 00:03:58

Sorry, what are you talking you ?

WorraLiberty Sat 24-Jan-15 00:05:27

No clue what thread you mean but it sounds like a pile of bollocks, indulged by the "Ooh I was the most cynical person in the world until (insert something completely woo) happened" brigade.

Just me then grin

Have seen so many threads re spooky stuff about small children talking about their "other mummies" - what's that about?

The parents aren't woo - more confused so is it just lots of DC with overactive imaginations?

You'll love this thread smile

Mine had another mummy. He still remembers how she 'died', and he's at university now.

Of course it sounds like complete bollocks. But he said it, aged 1, not me. I can stealth boast about my child's advanced imagination if I feel like it.

WorraLiberty Sat 24-Jan-15 00:14:02

Of course the parents are woo, otherwise they wouldn't take any notice of the millions of weird things kid's say.

My DS1 spent an entire year of his life aged 3 to 4yrs, answering most questions with "Bin bags" as an apparently acceptable reply.

He's 23yrs old now and we've still never got to the bottom of it.

Perhaps his 'Other Mummy' was a refuse collector???

grocklebox Sat 24-Jan-15 00:14:49

Aged 1? REally? Given he's now at uni, I doubt your recollection is accurate.

Whats that about, OP? Well I reckon children having imaginations is probably more likely than reincarnation and remembering past lives, but maybe I'm just being too logical.

Ohwhatfuckeryisthis Sat 24-Jan-15 00:15:36

My DS had another family (who were much nicer than us) he would threaten to go there regularly. wish he'd fuck off there now he's 23

MadameOvary Sat 24-Jan-15 00:15:59

Worra are you having a bad day?

FightOrFlight Sat 24-Jan-15 00:16:44

Past life memories and all that woo

Quite interesting fight

FightOrFlight Sat 24-Jan-15 00:30:27

I'm sure that science can explain, for example, the recollections of James Leininger but I'm a bit woo myself so I find it fascinating and spooky

grocklebox No, my recollection is fine (I have a calendar-ish memory, and can place it accurately between major life events) but I don't believe he had actually lived a past life, however many old ladies told me he'd been here before.

Salmotrutta Sat 24-Jan-15 00:50:47

Don't subscribe to any woo-ish shite ideas.

Total sceptic.

HTH

Salmotrutta Sat 24-Jan-15 00:55:20

"aged 1" is quite a broad twelve month window really, isn't it?.

So a 23 month child (who has just heard a story about death in a fairy tale) starts babbling nonsense about dead/dead people.

That's quite common; nearly two year old babbles weird stuff.

Hold the front page... hmm

Salmotrutta Sat 24-Jan-15 00:56:36

That should be dead/dying people

My dad always used to talk about her other mum Peggy and her little sister _Bunty.
She doesn't remember anything now though.

Iliveinalighthousewiththeghost Sat 24-Jan-15 01:01:22

D.D not dad.

Salmotrutta Sat 24-Jan-15 01:04:14

Ilive - your Dad used to talk about her other mum? And she doesn't remember anything now?

Is this your Dad or a female relative who is channeling other mothers?
