imaginary friend

QQ has a perculiar pastime. Whenever she's not doing anything in particular (like when she's waiting for papa in the car/ waiting for dinner to be served), she'll start talking to her imaginary friend. On her imaginary phone (in this case, her hand). I find it really funny watching her... she'll talk in her high-pitched voice which she usually save for when she's talking to her dolls. She'll be nodding her head, laughing at some jokes, looking serious at times, and sometimes covering her mouth with her other hand in a guffaw :-D.
The other day, I overheard part of her conversation. In between all her gibberish that I could not hear, I heard her saying to her imaginary friend that "I'm so tired" (yes, it's around her naptime), inviting her friend to come over to our "Sxxx Mxxxx house", and she mentioned "Sure, I will show you". Showing what, I don't know :-D.

HQ always say she talks rubbish :-D.

Wondering we did the same thing last time? Why almost all the kids acting like that now??? But it's fun to see them acting like adult.
