Imaginary Friend Hotel

My kids asked me for the tape today. Don’t think I am mean. I HAVE to ration tape. My kids have an addiction to it that they are unwilling to address. Anyways, I knew they were up to something as they kept taping small objects to the walls. On closer inspection I found out they were small doors. Some had names on them - Shimmer, Les, Magic (red door), and Strawberry. My kids informed me they were doors to their imaginary friends' homes as they live in our walls. (Insert creepy music here.) The nameless door belongs to Morph, my son’s “friend”. I asked where the doors were to their long time imaginary friends - Uniqua and Pablo (Backyardigan names, but they look just like my kids I am told.) I guess they have to come in the front door because they are too big to live in the walls. I am so having nightmares tonight.

Wow, I have to ration the tape around here, too. And their imaginary friends seem to have imaginary friends. It's hard to keep track of them all at this point. But my 7yo just drew pictures of all of hers and TAPED them to the wall in her room. One of them looks just like Harry Potter.

My kids told me that their new imaginary friends look just like galigoogoos from Viva Pinata. If you aren't familiar with them, they are kind of like ugly dolls. I think I'd rather have mice in my walls.

If I were 7 I think I would like Harry Potter to be my imaginary friend. A friend with a magic wand would be about perfect.

Tape is used for every little thing. When mom says kindly: How about using some glue? I get a quick "No, no, that won't work...."

My dd has imaginary friends too. Mice. Everywhere. Thousands of them. She's ten. Should I be worried?

Not unless there actually ARE mice everywhere, and then only if you dislike mice, but otherwise - no worries.

Well I think those doors are just pretty dang cool! What an idea, to give them a door. I knew a freaky old artist who used to carve sculptures for old forgotten gods, ya know, so they'd have a place to live. Reminds me of that...

What a cool mental picture, a freaky old artist carving for forgotten gods. Would make a great character in a arsty, dark movie.
