Imaginary Friend*



* Imaginary Friend: pretend character often created by children to provide comfort in times of stress, companionship when they're lonely, someone to boss around when they feel powerless, and someone to blame for the decapitated hamster floating in the toilet. Most important, an imaginary companion is a tool young children use to help them make sense of the adult world.


This week Julis introduced us to her new friend Kix.
Kix is invisible or as Julia likes to say it “de mentiritas”. Kix is a female and Juli describes her as “a veces mi amiga, a veces mi mama”, immediately after hearing this, I hear my heart break in a thousand little pieces!
You see, I have been back to work full time since June 1st and Tito was away travelling this past week, ergo: Kix. For what we have been able to see so far, Kix is really good to Julis which is certianly a relief and curiously we did not hear anything about Kix during the weekend. 

In any case we have no pictures of Kix to share (for obvious reasons) so here are a few others documenting other weekly happenings.


Julis went swimming at the Abuelos house. 

Jumped right in in spite of the freezing water

The abuelos had a tougher time getting in  ;)

still they persevered and eventually found the strength to do so.

She truly enjoys the whole pool thing

And stayed in until her lips turned purple

A nice warm shower complimented by the possibility of some creativity thanks to some food coloring over ice cubes.


So as my guilt settles in I have to say that I am grateful Julia has some resources of her own to deal with the changing circumstances at our household. So welcome Kix, hope your stay with us is a happy one.
