Do you have ESP?

I used to think I had ESP, although it was probably pure coincidence. It started when I was a teenager. I remember exactly the first time it happened. I suddenly had a strange song playing in my head, a song I'd never heard before. I kept singing it to myself over and over again, and I swear I'd never heard it. I was getting upset that it was stuck in my head, so I turned on the radio so I could hear a different song to get that one out of my head. Well oddly enough when I turned the radio on, this song was playing at that moment! There were a few other times it happened the exact same way, athough it wasn't always with songs I didn't know. Sometimes I'd have older songs running through my head that I hadn't heard in a very long time, and the moment I turned the radio on, that song was playing. It was always very eerie. It hasn't happened in a very long time, but I still remember that I felt very strongly that I'd had ESP, so now anytime I get a sense of foreboding, I do get very nervous. One night I had a horrible feeling the house was going to catch fire. I kept asking hubby all these silly questions, most of them pertaining to the heater in my twins bedroom. He shrugged it off, but I told him that I had a strange sense the house was going to set fire, and I couldn't ignore it "because I did have ESP" I told him. He eventually went and unplugged the heater to make me feel better, and when he unplugged it, there was a large spark from the outlet. He turned on the light, and the spark had burned the outlet and the end of the power cord. It scared him a bit, so we never used that outlet again until we replaced it a few months ago.

I'd say I do. But only where my daughter is concerned. I can tell what she is doing, even when not able to see her. I think I am developing the same skill with my son. Most mom have this to some degree I believe.

That may just be knowing your kids very well. I can tell what my kids are doing by the sounds they make. Right now I hear nothing but the TV, which means they're vegging out on the sofa totally fixated on the TV. The only children not in the living room are outdoors, and I don't hear screaming and yelling, so that means they've each found seperate friends to play with and aren't bugging each other.
