Kids are scary. Sure, they can be cute and cuddly but I've always found much of that suspicious. Nobody smiles that often without a plot lurking behind the eyes. Somethings that children say may just be random and off the cuff -- sometimes we need to listen, because they're warning you and it can be downright spooky!
Redditor hlwoolly __wondered what sort of eerie things adults have heard from the mouths of babes. Turn your lights on, y'all!

"Mummy, I love you so much I want to cut off your head and carry it around with me so I can see you all the time and kiss you."
We explained photographs to him but he was still pretty keen on having my actual head.
At a campfire this little girl threw some sticks in it and while hearing those crackling noises she turned around, looked into my eyes and then casually said: "I want to know what sounds you make when I throw you into that fire!" Yeah that was pretty creepy.
"Who's that at the desk over there?" We were in an empty room, no one was at the desk. Was also at a funeral.
My now wife and I were staying at a relative's house close to the airport so that we could fly out early the next morning. In the morning we had breakfast with their ~5 year old son and we were telling him how we were getting on an airplane to go to Florida. The kid looked at my wife and me and said "Boom! Crash! Black smoke!". I still can't believe we got on that airplane.
