I mean….given the info in your OP and assuming it’s accurate and true. I really can’t think of a logical, non-creepy way for this to have happened. 

Maybe now is the time to set up a camera with video recording in the nursery?

That’s pretty creepy. I personally do believe in spirits. The first law of thermodynamics is energy cannot be created nor destroyed. So what happens when we die?

I’ve always found it helpful to smudge (sage smoke) if you feel off about a space. There’s always stagnant energy in old buildings and especially if someone died in that house. ESPECIALLY if they died in that room.

I agree with PP that there really doesn’t seem to be a non-paranormal explanation. It is weird that nothing came through on the monitor, given that even if a ghost moved your crib and rug it would have made noise.

Do you have wood floors in the nursery? This used to happen at my grandmother’s house when something(heater, air conditioner, water heater, I can’t recall what it was but it was something like that) turned on. It would cause a vibration that would move the rug under the bed in the guest room but the bed would be unmoved. It would never happen when someone was in the bed, just when the bed was unoccupied.

It also could just be that your mom doesn’t remember moving the rug but did so accidentally. This has sort of happened to me. I creeped myself out with a life sized doll showed up in the middle of my daughter’s room. I didn’t know it was hiding in a bag of clothes we had been gifted and somehow fell out when I dragged the bag of clothes into the hall. I was certain I would have noticed a giant, creepy doll falling out of a bag, but the nanny cam proved nope, I didn’t. Scared the absolute shit out of me when I came back eight hours later.

I generally believe that everything has a reasonable explanation. Make sure your windows and doors are secure. Check any areas that could have allowed human or animal access. Set up the nanny cam. You might never be able to know for sure what caused it but you can be 100% certain it wasn’t ghosts. Try to focus on the more plausible threats.

There are any number of explanations. Ghosts are not one of them.

The rug probably caught on her foot. Why would a ghost move a rug? If a ghost was capable of moving objects why would it not just write you a note? Confirmation bias is going to babe you think every odd little thing can only be explained by ghosts. Sage the room if it makes you feel better.

Obviously the ghost thinks your rug is ugly and was trying to get rid of it.

can you set up a camera? Chances are it’ll happen again, if it happened in such a way that your mom doesn’t remember doing it. (Or you know, if you have a ghost.. )

My guess is it most likely involves pulling the crib out on one side for whatever reason, and then pushing the crib it back in…

I’d think mom tripped over it or shoved it accidentally with a foot or something. I don’t believe in ghosts.

I guess what always makes me wonder is the mindset that jumps straight to the paranormal or the supernatural instead of focusing on reasonable explanations. As many others have already mentioned, there IS an explanation, and it doesn’t involve ghosts. The rug in my living room is large, heavy and wool, and yet it moves. Indeed, it is pinned under furniture on two sides, and it STILL moves. I’m relatively sure it has more to do with foot traffic, vibrations in an old home or other things, but supernatural “explanations” have never entered my mind. If it makes you feel better, hook up the camera and see what you can see.

I’d be freaked out too!  A very similar thing happened to my husband and me in our apartment once.  We left to take a little walk and when we came back, his heavy ceramic foot long turtle had fallen off a shelf behind his monitor and his roommate’s (who was out to sea months at a time and away at that time) also very heavy 24″ monitor had turned also 45 deg from how it was when we left.  To say I was freaked the hell out was an understatement.  The doors were still locked, no windows were open.  We tired jumping up and down, shaking the tables with the items back in place as vigrously as we could, and nothing would make those things move!  Never happened again and still dont have an explaination!

paigey22 :  Lol I love how you’re acting incredulous at Happy Sky’s suggestion that your Mom could have accidentally moved a rug when the alternative is that a “ghost” did some redocrating 

What a spooky ghost! Wish it would come to my house and do some painting for me
