Imaginary Friends

More About Tidoo

Tidoo seems to have largely lost her “Baby” appellation. More and more we hear about Tidoo as though she is Lucas’s imaginary friend. Tidoo has other parents who live in a house far away. Lucas says she lives with us so that she can be close to him. Tidoo enjoys sports and going places with us. Tidoo can eat many bowls of cereal. Sometimes when she’s feeling sad, Lucas has to hold Tidoo to comfort her. Candy always makes her feel better.

I Thought Imaginary Friends Were Supposed to Be Imaginary

Those Waldorf people are right: Lucas’s imagination is working on overdrive lately. But I thought imaginary friends were supposed to be imaginary. Apparently I was wrong. Imaginary Tasha and Imaginary Xander are now spending a lot of time at our house–“For reals, Mom.” They play ball games with Lucas (a sort of Calvin-Ball, except I guess it’s Lucas-Ball). Imaginary Tasha is really good at this game. Lucas has to help out Imaginary Xander a bit because he’s little still. Imaginary Tasha and Imaginary Xander have been riding in the car with us lately too. They have great conversations that keep Lucas occupied in the back seat.
