Imaginary Friend

Imaginary Baby

Ever the comedian, my husband recently posted the above image to his twitter account.

I should explain that in a moment of weakness I purchased this adorable little snow suit for my baby to wear next Christmas. I wanted to show it to my Mum who does not exactly live locally so I decided to take a photo to text her. Rather than lie it flat, I arranged it in “baby shape” on the sofa to give her an idea of what it would look like on her little grandson.

However when my husband came into the room to raid the fridge for a can of beer, he did a bit of a double take. With one raised eyebrow he made some caustic comments about his concern that my impatience about the arrival of our child in May had resulted in my fashioning an imaginary baby to fill what is clearly a gap in my life in the interim.

I wish to put the record straight – this is not intended as a substitute Lumpy – however adorable, it is clearly no substitute for the wriggling, giggling little boy currently swimming round happily in my tummy.

What should be more concerning is that he immediately thought it was an imaginary friend. Is there something he is not telling you about his own issues – lol. 😉
