Ode to Joe and Sally

Joe and Sally,

You are dear friends to us.  Although no one can see or hear you, except Josh and Ellie, we find you to be one of a kind friends.  You got your names from some horses we saw along the road.  We named them Joe and Sally and soon, after we met you, those names were passed along.  Now that Josh is in school all day, we are so glad you have stuck around to hang out with Ellie.  She is very fond of you, even though I think you spend much of your play in time out (especially you, Joe).  It is so kind of you to interact with our kids and teach them to play nicely with others.  I do have to say though, you do seem to cause a lot of trouble, or at least that's what Ellie tells me.  If something is broken, lost or not where it should be, you both seem to always be at the heart of the answer.  Well, we still are happy that you are a part of our family.

Oh, and PS. I am sorry about sitting on you so many times.  I really will try to keep an eye out for you.

That's awesome. We haven't gotten into imaginary friends yet, although I'm sure they're around the corner!

Poor Joe. Poor Sally. Imaginary friends, huh?

Poor Kris... they're really YOUR friends, aren't they? C'mon... you have as big an imagination as the kiddos... J/K.
