Meet Natasha

During dessert after dinner last night...

TONGGINATOR: (calling to me from the kitchen table) Momma, Natasha said I look silly!!!!

TONGGU MOMMA
: (responding from the family room) You do not look silly. Just ignore her.

TONGGINATOR: But she just laughed at me! And she said I look silly AGAIN.

TONGGU MOMMA: Tell Natasha to stop talking to you that way. Tell her that if she keeps using unkind words, she will lose the privilege of speaking.

TONGGINATOR: Natasha, Mommy said you can't talk to me like that or you won't be allowed to talk.

(the pleasant sounds of dessert goodness for about two minutes)

TONGGINATOR: Momma, Natasha said I'm mean.

TONGGU MOMMA: Tell Natasha she's not allowed to speak for five minutes.

TONGGINATOR: Don't talk anymore.

(silence for 30 blessed seconds)

TONGGINATOR: Momma, now Natasha's laughing at me. AND she poked me.

TONGGU MOMMA: Tell her to go to her room.

TONGGINATOR: Go to your room. And you can't come down til Momma says so. (Natasha leaves the room, heading upstairs) Okay, Momma. Now I can eat.

Did I mention to y'all that Natasha is the latest invisible friend to join the Tongginator's gaggle? Sigh. Please tell me this normal...

I'd say completely normal, but I do have one daughter who thinks she's a dog. so, maybe I am not the best judge of normal...

Stonefox (otherwise known as Heidi) said...

I am so loving it! I think normal is relative, right?

Kathryn said...

Completely normal!! I can't tell you how many times I had to intervene a battle between my son and one of his many invisible friends.
I remember one time getting very annoyed because I walked in his room and he was on the floor with a pillow and a blanket. He said that (can't remember name) so and so doesn't want him in bed, after this went on for more than an hour, I yelled at so and so and put my son back into bed, this went on and on till I felt like a crazy woman.
Perfectly normal and very cute!!!!

I think it's awesome...and funny. What a creative mind.

Hmmm....I'd love to know how her 'friends' get their names and what they look like.

Briana's Mom said...

That is funny stuff! I am sure it normal. Definitely. Ok probably. Well, maybe. ;)

Heather of the EO said...

Her imagination rocks the invisible friend party!!!
LOVE it. And yes, SO normal. I think?

I'm certain it's normal, but at our house, we don't have imaginary friends, Spud just IS someone else.
Like Curous George, or Bob the Builder or Larryboy. Woe to the mom that calls him Spud. "Spud isn't here right now"
Kinda makes me long for Natasha.

McEwens said...

How creative!!! I guess it is normal???!! Nopne of my boys had imaginary friends... but they are boys. Too funny though!

Aunt LoLo said...

Hahaha...totally normal. LOVE it.

I'm sorry I am laughing. But can I say, she chose a lovely name for her friend. I think I will dare to say your gal is brilliant! I would be happy to put my professional opinion in writing for you should you ever need a recommendation. I got your back!

btw- Don't want to judge your imaginary parenting, but Natasha is a little bit sassy, and I think you need to nip that in the bud early. If these kids get away with it now, it can turn into an imaginary drug problem later on in life. I'm just sayin'

Well, I'm not sure about "normal", but KK spends most of her day with her imaginary friends, providing lots of entertainment for me. I don't live when I have to discipline the though. Yesterday, she told me that one of them gave her a rash... I'm pretty sure I missed a teachable moment there!

Rebecca Ramsey said...

Okay, now I know we have to get my nephew together with your sweetie. He can bring his friend Gust. (Sometimes called Gus.) Gust and Natasha can misbehave while they play!

~Billie~ said...

Too funny!! Life would be too boring if everything and everyone was "normal". Gotta love it!

Half Gaelic, Half Garlic! said...

Totally normal...and a sign of a very bright child with a creative imagination!!

My little niece had an invisible friend and her name was...."Ho Bee Doe".....not sure where she came up with that one, but she was part of our family for about two years....we all got to know her very well!!!

prechrswife said...

My mother still tells the story about when I was little, she had to open the car door and let my imaginary friend get in before we could leave. I would say the Tongginator is very normal. :-)

Janet said...

YOUR daughter? Normal? I highly doubt it. :-)

I think imaginary friends are amazing!

Shawnstribe said...

mmm...yep, normal at her age, at ours, or should i say mine...totally suspect ; )
...i'm off to talk to my friend.....

This is too funny. Way to send the imaginary friend to her room!

Beverly said...

extremely normal. Glenys' blanket gets introuble for the same kinds of things natasha does.

Sharie said...

Imaginary friends are wonderful. My friend's daughter had MANY when her husband returned from Iraq. I think it helped her process all of the change...

CC said...

No imaginary friends here. But Marvel Girl's stuffed hippo is her "baby". And she treats it just like one too.?

Beachy Mimi said...

Totally normal. Queen B had Kelly as her invisible friend, and The Princess had Pootie as her's. Natasha is a pretty good name choice.

Jill said...

Maybe she sees ghosts? LOL! Let us know how it goes...I am sure Lucy will be there someday!

Georgia Peach said...

Oh this was soooooo like that movie where Bruce Willis was really a ghost the whole time and I didn't realize it until the very (I mean very, very) end.

Well good - because I was getting irritated with that Natasha.
