I had 4 little brothers by the time I was 8, with the last two being twins and their big brother only 13 months
older so it was more like triplets. The oldest of the boys did try to help a bit, I think he was my "gofer" as I lined up the other 3 in front of the couch for changing time(cloth diapers). And folding diapers, oh that seemed endless. Mom always says I was her right hand, for her to cook or clean she needed my help. I didn't have time for an imaginary friend. I just wanted to be alone, anywhere or any way I could. I might have briefly had an imaginary sister, not sure. But after the last 2 came out as more boys I told mom to hang it up, I didn't want a sister anymore.
I always kept pretty much to myself as a kid and was a little shy, so I guess maybe I'd be someone you'd expect to have an imaginary friend. I never did, though. I've heard about imaginary friends, of course, but I wonder how common they are. Maybe they're not as common as I think.
I was a only child till I was 10 years old and I had a friend named Judy She was so much fun to play with LOL Always played what I wanted to play , agreed with everything and always let me win at all the games we played She was the best imaginary friend ever And my 5 year old has several that she plays with Emma is one and the other is a adult she has made up His name is Uncle Farmer, he is awesome You should hear some of the tales she tells about where her and Uncle Farmer go while we are asleep
When I was a child I was a sad shy little thing and I am now 50 and not too shy and not little at all now but I remember my imaginary friend. His name was Jared Murphy. LOL funny to remember something like that after 40 years. Even my sister remembers me talking about "him"
I never had an imaginary friend. I came to think that people with imaginary friends were actually seeing ghosts, has children could apparently see ghost more easily. What do y'all think about that idea?
Imaginery friends are everything u want in a real friend..... i don't really know the reason for that in particular ... but i think its because we believe that they understand us better and not criticise ...
