Dee Dee and Cochran


(Say Cheese!)

Our sweet K-Man has two of the most wonderful best friends a mother could ask for. They all get along so good together. They laugh, play dinosoaurs, take naps, eat and do many other fun things together. Oh...Did I mention they are imaginary?

Yes, Dee Dee and Cochran are my little boy's imaginary friends. K. has always had a great imagination and he really enjoys his buddies. They appeared a couple of weeks after we moved and have stuck around. At first my adorable husband wasn't to keen on the idea, but "the boys" have kind of grown on us. Now we just smile when K. lets us in on what they are doing.

Over the last few months we have learned a lot about Dee Dee and Cochran and in turn a lot about K. When we dicipline K. he often tells us what Dee Dee does at his home. Or when we won't give K. something he tells us what Cochran's Dad won't let him have. Almost everything that goes on in our home also goes on in "the boys' home" in some form or fashion.

However, A couple of days ago K. came up to me and said, "Dee Dee said Poo Poo."I explained that we don't talk that way and I don't won't to hear him say it. He then said he didn't say it but Dee Dee did. So I casually told him Dee Dee could't come play if he didn't talk nice.

I have kind of enjoyed Dee Dee and Cochran. It is fun to see what they will do or say next. Did you have an imaginary friend? How long do they normally stay around?

Oh man! How funny--Dee Dee and Cochran--how did he come up with those names?!? I think it's fan-diddly-tastic and creative--which, oh course K-Man is!!

Heather used to have an imaginary friend named John. He was in a tragic accident at the mall one day while we were shopping. Details privately.

creatively brilliant!

I never had an imaginary friend, neither did either of my two kids. at one point after living here for a little while, we blamed all the "bad stuff" that happened on "Bob Greene"! seriously! :)

That is so great. My boys haven't really had imaginary friends yet. But his sound like a healthy release for him. Oh what stories you'll be able to retell when he gets older. :)

I think it is quite amazing that he can manage two imaginary friends!!! (And keep them straight.) Sounds like a highly intelligent child!! (Great family line...both sides!TEE HEE!)
