Several times this afternoon I would be in another room and I'd hear Monkey talking to himself. I ignored it at first, but he was having full, one-sided conversations. I finally asked him who he was talking to and he said his friends.
"Oh," I replied, "what are their names?"
"Ed and Jim and Crystal and..."
"Um, how many are there?"
"Okay." And here is where I decided to let the conversation end. Imaginary friends are normal, right?
But then he continued. "And they live in the walls and when they're in the walls they look like snakes, but when they come out they look regular."
"Okay honey, that's nice."
Now I'm wondering if I should smile and play along or seriously call an exorcist to rid my home of these snake people who live in my walls!

I asked Ethan that very same question a couple of weeks ago. His response..he was talking to naked people. He gave me some unusual names but I left it at that. Boys and their imagination. :)ReplyDelete
Yikes! I always get a little sketched out when I'm playing with Gillian Grace in her room and she pauses, gets still, stares down an empty hallway, and smiles. Sometimes it's like she sees something that I don't! Talk about Goosebump city!ReplyDelete
Hopefully the 31 snake people will move away soon only to be replaced with the next creative figment of your lil's imagination!
I'm a new follower! You are funny! The feet thing below is weird and I too wonder on those phonetic license plates.ReplyDelete

Found your blog through Niki's blog. Love the title! I am a Georgia girl myself, though no longer live in the south. Yes we southerners are sassy right!? :) I've enjoyed reading some of your posts!ReplyDelete
Our oldest daughter had 12 cowboys who lived in her room. We had to tuck them in and blow air kisses to them each night. This went on for several months until one day they just disappeared. When I asked where they were, she said "Dey went home cause dey missed thems mama". Sweet times, that little girl is now 37 and raising her own family :0)ReplyDelete
