When my son was young, maybe 3, he had an imaginary friend named Jenny. He would play with her all the time. He said when he wasn�t playing with her she lived with God. We asked why she lived with God and he said because she had died in a fire. We are not a church going family, so the fact he would say that was just odd. She played with him for many months.
One week he kept talking about how it was going to be Jenny�s birthday soon, soon it was going to be Jenny�s birthday. Then the news came from Tommy that tomorrow was Jenny�s birthday and we should have a party she was excited, maybe should be get a cake. We bought a little cake for his imaginary friend and then waited for Jenny to come. She never visited my son that day or ever again.
He cried, he was devastated she didn�t come to the party. Because we thought she was imaginary we tried to convince him that she was there and we should have the cake anyway and that only made him cry more because she wasn�t imaginary she was real.
I never thought of this until now, maybe she meant that tomorrow was her birth day for a new life and that is why she never returned.
He used to play dress up with her all the time, he was dress up as her and then she would dress up as him. He would also pretend to be Jenny and say that Tommy wasn�t here, he was at camp pretending to be Jenny. We thought that was disturbing. There were many things about this imaginary friend we thought were disturbing, didn�t seem to be make believe the other kids were playing. But then one day it all just stopped.
