My Son and His Invisible Friend Sally

Posted on April 29, 2011

My son has been playing with an invisible little girl. At first I thought it was an imaginary friend and when he described her he was just being extra descriptive. A Blonde haired blue eyed girl in a pink dress… Named Sally.

We just moved into a “new for us” house and my son has the back corner room with a small walk in closet.

When he first described her to me, he was sitting in our back yard on the porch swing. I heard him talking and asked who he was talking to? And when he described her, my three year old described her like he was looking directly at her and that I was silly for even asking. When I sat next to “them” I had to scoot over because I wasn’t giving her enough room and when I leaned over to kiss my baby he told me I was pushing her.

But even through all that I didn’t think anything of it until he asked me where Sally sleeps.

“Well Baby she sleeps at her mommy’s house”

“NO mom” (Like I’m so ridiculous) “She lives in our house. she should sleep in my room”

(First reaction) “umm no”

“Yes mom…” apparently this is the end of the conversation.

He then described her to his grandma, like she was a friend from school that just happened to live in our house.

    i wouldn’t doubt him. children are more open to the otherside than we know!

    This is interesting, I think that you are right and it isnt an imaginary friend, your soon seems too descriptive and most children with imaginary friends will actually admit to their parents that they are infact not real. The other interesting thing is that children usually tend to make their imaginary friends the same gender as they are (Not in all cases but definitely more often than not) so I believe he has infact befriended a spirit. I was interested in this story because according to my mum, I had a ‘spirit’ friend when I was younger. I dont remember much about him/her, i was only 3 at the time, but apparently I would spend hours in my room just talking to nothing – not usual imaginary friend play. Apparently my friend dissapeared when I was about 4 and we moved house. I dont think you need to be alarmed or concerned, but dont let ‘sally’ take up all of your sons life, try and make him understand that she is not real, and be careful if your son gets harmed or frightened then you will need to step in and do something. You also want to avoid any psychological trauma this could cause, so I think making him understand that his friend is not real is something you need to work towards, how would he feel if ‘sally’ suddenly dissapeared for good (as spirits seem to do sometimes) Good luck and thanks for the story!

    as Trolldoll says, don’t doubt him, young children can see things us adults can’t.
    my grandaughter was just the same.

    Good points but Deuteronomy is part of the “old law of Moses”. Are you still operating under the “old law”?

    Wow…again with the demons. What authority do you claim “demon”, MyName? And please try to answer the question without throwing a bunch of Bible verses at me. I would like to hear your thoughts. God gave us intellect, reason, and the ability to have our own thoughts..I would like to hear yours on why this has to be a demon. Maybe it’s possible the child is sensitive to spirits that may be around. But throwing fear into this situation is not going to help, in my opinion.

      God gave us reason, not religion. That’s my motto! I also totally agree with you scarygirl67!

    I fail to see the paranormal aspects of your story. It is creepy when children have imaginary friends, but that doesn’t make it paranormal.

  7. Rylee says:

    Sounds like your son is quite the sarcastic one isn’t he! xD
    This is quite interesting. Try looking into the past of the house, or ask him more about “Sally”. Don’t doubt him though! :D

    I also want to hear moer about sally. can you please try to remember if there anything else about sally that you haven’t post in here?

  9. S says:

    Oh my gosh I read a story like that and a little girl had an imaginary friend named Sally, and sally wore a pink dress and had Blue eyes! The litte girls room had a walk in closet too, I think that both of the stories are reffering to the same Sally!

  10. xannex says:

    i read a story about this same little girl with another family. she was the daughters imaginary friend too but they moved quickly when they found out from the neighbors that a little girl named sally had died in an electrical fire inside the walk in closet and her parents had moved to north dakota.
