My grandson is 3 1/2 and very articulate. Today his mother was reading him a book and he said "my other mother pressed leaves." My daughter was shocked and asked him what is pressing leaves; he has never seen this done. He said you wait until they fall then smooth them out and put them in the book. He proceeded to show her using a tissue. She then asked what do you do with them? He replied "you put the book on my shelf for later." She asked what shelf and he said the one in his room at his other mother's house. He then said you take the leaf out later, color on them and put it on a stick; also relating you must stick the end of the leaf in a bottle of glue. We have never had glue around so he does not know what it is. He does not attend preschool or any place he could have known about glue. He said "Tod" shooted his mother. We asked him where he was and he said he was hiding in the "cupboard". We have never used the word cupboard as we call them cabinets. I asked him what is a cupboard and he went into the kitchen and pointed at the cabinet under the kitchen sink. She asked him where is his other mother and he said they buried her in the ground and put dirt on her. No way could he have known about burials. This was shocking to us to hear him talk about this as if it happened today. My daughter and I tried asking him about his other mother but all he would say is she has blond hair and wears big flowers on her. I tried to fool him and told him I was his other mother and he looked at me matter of factly and said in a very grown up tone-no your not. He also talked about a mine at the end of a path even though he could not tell us what a mine is. He also refers to a sister which he does not have. He has 2 brothers 19 and 20 who are not in the home anymore. Is this remembering? His voice is so adamant about these events. We think maybe he is remembering a previous life, but are not sure. We don't want to question him too much. Is it better just to listen? Also, if he is remembering how can we get a time frame? I told my daughter the word cupboard was used by my grandmothers and I know if the forties women wore large flower print dresses and skirts. I don't know anyone in our family history who was shot. We asked Kade if he knew his other name when he lived with his other mother and he shook his head no. He did say my daughter is his mother now "because you were trying for me". My daughter did try for years for another child and even went to a fertility clinic. Kade never knew this.
