Did you have an Imaginary Friend

"Ill eat you up, I love you so."

Did you have an imaginary friend when you were little? I imagined that all of 
my stuffed animals came to life when I left the room so I had to strategically 
place them next to their "best friend" (yup, each were paired with a best) so that 
when they 'came to' they would wake up next to their best friend and they could 
begin their adventure for the day, kind of like Toy Story I guess, but I remember 
always being very burdened by the meticulous attention it required. I had one 
very special stuffed animal named "Kitty" whom I carried everywhere for a 
while. But remembering back, she never 'spoke' to me, or carried me off on 
adventures, she just hung out and kept me company.

I also thought everything had feelings... like my carpet... {?} Hated the idea of 
getting new carpet because I didn't want to hurt my blue carpets feelings. I am 
pretty sure this made things difficult for my parents; "But Tara a new carpet is
going to be clean and pretty."

What about you? Do you have memories like this? Or children that have 
imaginary friends? I would love to hear. xox
