Teddy Bear Land - Imaginary Friends

Julia (Miss four-and-a-half) has quite a few imaginary friends. Her favourite imaginary friends are Mario and Luigi (of Super Mario Bros fame) and a handful of "bug friends" in various colours. Her friends visit our house regularly and she is always making up stories about them and their adventures. She will also quite often blame them for various things she has done! Her stories are clever and imaginative, and whilst she can talk the hind leg off a donkey, I love to listen to her tales.

Sometimes her Dad and I try to join in with her fun, but she won't have a bar of it. Here is a recent conversation:

Dad: "Your bug friends have come inside, they must be cold out there".

Julia: "No, they are still outside".

Dad: "No, they're right behind you".

Julia: "You can't tell, they're invisible".

Dad: "I can see them".

Julia: "No, you can't, they're imaginary friends".

What can you say to that? Julia 1 - Dad 0.
