Dee Dee and Cochran
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?
