Invisible friend or talking to herself?

Miss Thing was being naughty this evening and not listening...running in the opposite direction...not getting dressed for bed. I gave her an opportunity to brush her teeth, but warned that if she wasn't brushing I was going to do it for her myself (which in her mind ranks with kisses and spankings). She scooted into Super Son's bathroom and diligently brushed away until I averted my gaze. She ducked into the little nook behind the door and began to tinker with the toilet paper holder. Hearing the ceasing of brushing and the clinking of metal I called her name...she quietly said "she is listening to me" a brief pause and then she emerged brushing again smirking for her cleverness. What I can't decide is if she was talking to herself or a new friend of the transparent variety.

  1. My little boy recently started talking to invisible cows and chickens. It's a little disconcerting at first!
