When asked what she was trying to grab, she replied “want to touch the hair,” twice; once again, there was nothing visible to the adults present.

Recently, the 4 year old claimed to have seen a ghost in the master bedroom doorway, a ghost she dreamed about a day later. She claimed soon thereafter that she saw the ghost she dreamed about was in the master bedroom with the parents. The same child had heard a noise in the kitchen that nobody else heard.
