Who's Charlie?


On Saturday Mara was playing with an imaginary friend, "Charlie." Where did that come from? We don't know any Charlies. Whatever. Then Monday morning Mara comes strolling through the room with her cabbage patch doll (who is of course naked - why do they even make doll clothes?). She starts telling me some LONG and VERY detailed story about what she and "Charlie" (this time Charlie is the doll) have been doing. And I find myself wondering again, "Who is Charlie?" We don't know anyone named Charlie, at least that I can think of. I can't think of any Charlie on any of her TV shows she watches. Where did she pick this name up? And why is she calling her girl doll, Charlie? Who knows where Charlie will turn up next time. Maybe it will be her stuffed doggy. Charlie's a good name for a dog, don't you think?

If she ever watches Playhouse Disney there is Charlie and Lola. Lola does have an imaginary friend named Sarah. :)

That's funny. I think she has watched that a few times. It not something she watches often, so I didn't even think of that. You may have solved the mystery.

Oh yes and they have cute English accents. Maybe she is pretending she is Lola. Who knows? Kids are crazy.
