When my daughter was 2, I was giving her a bath & sighed deeply, frustrated with the 2 year battle of ANY water touching her face = a full-blown meltdown. She looked up at me & said:
“I just scared, mommy, I drownded last time I was alive” & went back to playing with bath toys
Jaime Walker听到这番话痛哭流涕，仔细想想，Jaime Walker的哥哥和儿子的假想朋友有什么关系吗？
Same thing happened w/ my son. His imaginary friend’s name was Jon. My brother Jon died 2 years before my son was born. I had pictures of Jon, and I said one time to my son “he would have loved you”, and my kid said “oh he does, and he misses you”. I cried in the closet.
When my nephew was three, he told us about a dog that was at the foot of his bed, I guess, protecting him…he described my family dog that we had to put down the spring before he was born which he’d never seen pics of.
When my niece was four, looking at a picture of the Eiffel Tower, said “i can never go there. That’s where they cut my head off.”
When I was little I saw an old lady watching me sleep and my mom thought I was nuts. Found a photo album as an adult with an old yellowing photo from 1910- she was my great great grandmother, and instantly recognized her as the lady who watched me sleep
My nephew when aged 2 told us about when he was “a fighting man in Botswana”. We gave him a globe and he pointed at it…..”I lived there”.
My 3 year old will often talk about her friend George, and how he wears fun hats and likes to blow bubbles. That is her great grandpa. He died a full decade before she was born. She happens to share his birthday.
My son went to my ex mother-in-law’s house for Christmas when he was three. He came back and said “I saw Grandpa! No one could see him but me, but he was happy!”
His grandpa died a few months before I got pregnant with him. Lights stayed on that night.
In my old house when I was little I showed my mom a picture and said “this is my imaginary friend Sarah she died when she was 6” and three years later my little sister showed my mom the same picture and said the same thing.
