My daughter has an imaginary friend.

My daughter has an imaginary friend named Aubrey. She calls Aubrey her “pretend friend.”

Needless to say this thrills me. Not only did I write a novel about an imaginary friend, but I had a long-term imaginary friend when I was a child, too.

So far I have learned that Aubrey:

  • Sleeps late and needs to be awakened by a pretend trumpet.
  • Goes everywhere with Clara, even if Clara doesn’t mention her.
  • Likes puzzles.

I’m so excited.
