let's talk about David, Aaron and Sylvia for a second.
these "people" are Stella's "friends"
i don't believe they are ghosts because luckily i've never sat on them, or had to set the table for them, but they are for sure, NOT real people. they are completely fake.
Aaron and David have been around for quite some time now.
here's the deets on them:
**they live in Waterloo.
**their age changes all the time. sometimes they are 1, sometimes they are 5. sometimes 2. they have never been older than 5.
**they have a sister. she's a BIG reason they can never come anywhere. i asked if they were coming to her birthday party and she said 'no, they are with their sister.'
**they go to target A LOT. ha. the only time Stella usually talks about Aaron and David is when she's talking on her phone to them. and i will ask her 'oh what are Aaron and David doing today/tonight?' 'they're at target. with their sister." oh yes, yes, of course.
**and sometimes they are at school. i guess this is on days when they are 5 and not 1. but who knows.
so it's always been about Aaron and David. ALWAYS. even the other day my sister was talking about her old boss David and Stella stopped her mid sentence and said, 'hey, no David's my friend!' ha.
last week we were driving home from Connie's and Stella started talking about her new friend, Sylvia.
it took me FOREVER to figure out what she was saying her new friends name was.
finally i said, Sylvia??, in the most confused voice ever - and Stella replied with an extremely thankful, my god mom i've been saying that forever, YES!
so, welcome to the family Sylvia.
the deets on Sylvia.
** Stella met her at Tequilas.
**she is five.
**she lives in Sparta.
**and she has a baby at her house. which is the reason why she can't ever go anywhere. and why she couldn't come to the birthday party. because she has a baby at her house.
considering Stella has never been to the tequilas in Sparta and i don't know a single five year old named Sylvia this is in fact another fake friend.
when i posted to FB a few days about about Sylvia people were sharing all of their kids stories. and oh my goodness they are too funny!!
**my cousin said her brother used to tell people he had three black elephants living in his closet.
** Terri's kids had Zach. whom she had to always set the table for.
**another girl commented and made me feel better by saying her daughter had multiple fake friends at one point too.
**Erin's daughter had Bucky, but he's gone now. and if she asks her daughter about her she looks at her mom like who the heck is Bucky. ha. that's hilarious!!
**and my sister's boyfriend's brother (you follow that right?) had a friend with the best name yet Cousin John Brother. bahahaha.
so please - comment and let me know i'm NOT alone. and if you have a story, please share!! oh man they crack me up! i understand these fake friends are completely normal and it just goes to show my daughter has a great imagination, but i have a LOT of names to keep track of. damn, we just got Abbie back and she's been called the wrong name multiple times already. heck, i even call my kids Abbie sometimes. let alone adding Aaron, David and now Sylvia. ayi yi yi.
