Invasion of that Sweet Imagination {Guest Post over at Mama OT}

My daughter, just shy of four years old, gave herself an imaginary name that stuck with us for well over two months. If you and I were to meet in the park as complete strangers and we went through the formalities of introductions, my daughter would have introduced herself as Kada (Kay-duh). It might go something like this:

You: Hi! What’s your name?

Me: My name is Annie, and this is Ellie and Claire.

Ellie: My name’s not Ellie! It’s Kada!

Me: (Somewhat nervous at her daughter’s insistence upon being called an imaginary name) She likes to be called Kada…

You: Ooooh… Nice to meet you!

Pretty soon, strangers in the park, her friends, and sometimes Yours Truly were calling this spunky three year old by a name she completely dreamed up on her own.

Enter the world of imagination…
