I have recanted many a tale of ol' Darbs and Sammie Sam's antics and adventures. Remember when Darby ran back in the grocery store to get som M&M's? How about when Sam walked all the way from Pennsylvania? It was a riot when Mini #1 opened up the moving car because Darby hadn't gotten in yet!
So, I am reading If You Could See Me Now by Cecelia Ahern. She is the Irish author that wrote P.S. I Love You. If you only saw the movie and never read the book, you really need to. I'm not finished with this book yet, so a full review will have to come later.
Apparently, I have been an awful hostess to the dear imaginary friends that are living in my home. This book is so enlightening to imaginary friend parents. Ivan who is a professional imaginary friend, offers his side of the story to many of the issues that rise with imaginary friends.
Ivan says that the reason that imaginary friends leave food on their plate is that they get so paranoid because everyone is watching them waiting to see the food disappear that they can't eat and most of the time they aren't offered cutlery. It really peeves imaginary friends when they don't get a drink and when parents get mad when the imaginary friends ask for ice in the their drinks.
I hope Mr. Molly Lou isn't pointing out pretty women to Sam or Darby because apparently many dad do that to imaginary friends.
For the record, imaginary friends would NEVER tell their friends to each vegetables, so parents should just stop using that as an excuse.
No wonder it has never worked and Mini #1 just laughs at me whenever I have said "Darby is eating her vegetables and she thinks you should too."
I am so glad that I have seen the light from this book and will now be sure to extend a more welcoming spirit to Sam and Darby.
I think I need to get myself some imaginary friends to help me with this life. When I want to run away and hide from my children and husband, perhaps my imaginary friends could jump in to help.
