“Daddyo, do you have an imaginary friend?”
Overheard in The Five-Year-Old’s room during storytime…
The Five-Year-Old, curiously: “Daddyo, do you have an imaginary friend?”
Daddyo, carefully: “No.”
The Five-Year-Old, sadly: “Oh.”
A slight pause and then The Five-Year-Old, brightly: “How about I give you one of my kittens? It hasn’t been named. You could give it a name.”

My sister has at least 5 imaginary friends, whom we all know by name. (she plays games against them, monopoly being one of her favorites)
I absolutely loved how the 5YO wants to give her dad one of her ‘kittens’.
And on a side note, this would make a wonderful children’s story. May I borrow it and play around with the idea? I’m not sure if I can come up with anything better than what is so funny/adorable here, but I’d like to try.
Go for it. Let me know if you come up with anything interesting. 🙂
