Girl has started talking (a lot) about a very weird topic. She has new imaginary friends, but these friends are all dead. Very specifically there is one named Dadoo (which I know came from Animaniacs), and then she has all her "old, dead babies."
Her claim is that she was a grown-up, had a bunch of babies and they died so she became a kid again, and when she grows up, she'll have new babies.
My cosmic sister, La Sirena, will probably say that she is just remembering her past lives or some such thing. I don't know, maybe that's true, but it is weird and since she tells all sorts of people this story, I get looks like "what's up with your nutty kid talking about dead babies?" I just shrug.
After all my imaginary friend was called "Kathy's far-away neighbor" who drank pie and ate milk. This confused a lot of people, though I know exactly what I meant by "far-away neighbor". You see it wasn't Kathy's next-door neighbor, but the neighbor next-door to her next-door neighbor (see diagram).
So, is it really all that odd that she has a "dead Dadoo and her 5 dead babies" for friends? Probably, but I am withholding therapy to see if she grows out of it.
