It’s no secret that children sometimes say and do the creepiest things.

Take for instance how we’ve seen one child previously told his mum all about his ‘past life’ where he claimed to remember dying and coming back to life.

And now another tot has left their parents spooked – as they believe they caught him waving at the ‘ghost’ of his dead great-grandmother.

Jamie Bonnett initially thought his two-year-old son Loki Bonnett was simply pointing at a lampshade as he settled him to sleep in his and Stacey MacGillivray’s bed earlier this month.

However, footage of the evening shows the little boy looking puzzled before his face breaks out in a grin and he starts waving at an empty corner of the room and laughing.

Loki then starts repeatedly saying “hi” as dad Jamie laughs and asks “who are you saying hi to?”

The 30-year-old has since revealed he thinks Loki saw his dead great grandmother Isabel Mathers who he was ‘really close’ to until she died from cancer at aged 87 earlier this year.

He claims that Loki is very shy and never says hello to anyone except family members – and Isabel did tell them she’d be “looking out for them” from the afterlife.

Stacey, 25, says she finds it ‘comforting’ to think Isabel is watching over them – but Tesco worker Jamie admits he was so ‘creeped out’ that he bought a night light to sleep with for a few days afterwards.

Jamie, from Ballachulish, Scotland, said: “It’s clear he was pointing to someone over in the corner and saying hi. He’s very shy, so he won’t say hi to anyone unless they’re family.

“The way he was smiling and waving, the only person we could think of that he’d be that close with is Stacey’s grandmother. She’s just passed away quite recently and he was close with her.

“I wouldn’t say I believed in spiritual things before, but my beliefs have changed a wee bit. It’s nice knowing that maybe there is something after [life] and maybe she was there watching over him.

“They say that children are more susceptible to seeing this sort of thing. We knew for a while that she was dying and she did say she’d be watching out for us.

“At first I thought he was pointing at the light shade. When he pointed again and asked ‘what’s that?’ I could see he was pointing into the corner. And then he started waving and saying ‘hi’ to the corner.

“He was smiling and giggling afterwards as well. He sat in bed with a big smile on his face. He laughed and that was actually surprisingly one of the best nights we’ve had with him.

“I was shocked and didn’t know what to do. I felt cold and creeped out, but it’s brought a bit of comfort to Stacey that perhaps it was her granny.

“We got a wee night light for a few days afterwards. That’s got about four different levels of brightness and I think we slept on the third brightest one.”

Jamie adds that Loki has waved at an open cupboard near their bedroom a few times before, but this experience is the one that gave him the most chills.

Stacey has since shared the video of her son’s spooky antics on TikTok, where it has since gone viral, being viewed more than two million times and garnered over 100,000 likes.

Many users were baffled by the clip, with one commenting: “It’s a grandparent saying ‘hi’.”

Another wrote: “His guardian angel was present. The fact that he was not scared.”

A third proclaimed: “Omg I would have grabbed him and ran out of that room so fast.”
