Friends

Some kids have imaginary friends. Elizabeth does not. Instead, she has given her hands and feet names and talks to them.

Her right hand is Tiger Lily. Her left hand is Wendy. (Often my hands are informed that they are Captain Hook and Smee or Captain Hook and Peter.) Her left foot is Belle and her right is the Beast. Lately her toes have also had personalities- they have been Mama toe and Daddy toe and all their baby toes.

She really is quite adorable. Tiger Lily and Wendy “go swimming” or “take showers” when Elizabeth washes her hands. And Belle and the Beast “put on their ball gowns” and “get into their carriages” (socks and shoes, yo.)

Her imagination has really been quite spectacular lately and this is very enjoyable to watch.
