Martian & Friends

Wednesday, March 13, 2013

Dear Olive,
I realised I haven't made a proper mention on here of a whole group of people who play a rather significant part in your everyday life. (Once, way back here, I said I'd save it for another letter, so here it is, almost 12 months on.) I don't really recall the circumstances in which Martian came into our life. One day, she didn't exist. The next, we were opening car doors and setting an extra place at the dining table for her. It was just her for a while, but sometime around the middle of last year, her story grew bigger. Martian has a sister called Carrotty. Martian has a dog called BellaMartians Mum died. Martians been on a roller coaster. Martian has a friend called Rainbow. Anything you haven't done or seen or eaten or tried, Martian has. And if not Martian, then Carrotty. You tell long and elaborate stories about each of them. They all came to Mexico with us, you know. And when we go out walking, you often have Bella on a lead. Shane and I have to wait for you sometimes ... sit, Bella, sit. She's incredibly disobedient that martian dog. It's endlessly entertaining for us all.

Photos: Talking up some tall tales at the park, and a tattoo you drew on me of Martian (with one eye) holding a balloon.

So far no imaginary friends in our house.
I wonder if Olive will be a storyteller?
