So Ben has some new friends. Their names are Tubby, Huggy and Betty. They are imaginary. I heard about Tubby first. (As in "You're going down, Tubby" - see Benisms) I "met" Betty yesterday. He kept telling me how much he missed Betty. He wanted to go see her but he couldn't because Daddy was at work and she lived in the forest. He wanted to call her but his play cell phone was broken. We were sitting in the living room and all of a sudden he says "There's Betty!" I said "Where's Betty?" He said "She's in my room" So he ran down the hall to "get" her. Poor Bettty fell into the "mud" in the hallway. So he had to give her a "bath" after she had her bath he had to dry her off then she had to go to bed. Coming back down the hall she fell again but this time not in the mud. She did need a bandaid. Betty turned out to be pretty clumsy. She fell quite a few times and needed a bunch of pretend bandaids. She had to come to the bathroom with us when Ben had to go potty (BTW Potty training is going AWESOME!! He consistently poops in the potty. We're still working on peeing in the toilet.) I accidently forgot her in the bathroom so we had to go back and get her. Then later she had to go potty. Ben helped her up on the toilet but when she was done I got the privelage of wiping her butt. (How many of you can say you've wiped an imaginary friend's butt? I've now wiped TWO! I got to wipe Huggy's today)
Huggy came over today. Huggy was a lot quieter. She (all three of them are girls) would show up randomly. We'll see if Tubby comes over tomorrow.
I love seeing his imagination working. It's so much fun.
