I was just wondering if anyone else has come across this and how you've handled it.
Just recently, dd1 (3.5 years old) has started talking about her 'other parents' who are ever so much nicer than her real ones. They have names (Sarah and Tunnan?!), and they are really cool...they don't wash her hair, they have juice in their house, they let her play in the bathroom, etc.
Whenever this mommy is being annoying, she'll mention casually that her 'other' mommy doesn't do that/does do that, depending on what she wants/doesn't want to do. She'll even tell us that she's lived here long enough, and she needs to go back to her house now.
Whenever she says these things, we generally just say how much we'd miss her if she ever didnt' live with us, and that we love her very much. When she doesn't want to do something, we talk about the reasons for doing it (if it's necessary), and proceed.
About the juice...I just say that I'm sorry, but this Mommy doesn't have any juice - just water here!
She's not been horrible about it or anything, and in a way it's quite amusing. But has anyone else come across this or anything similar? I would really love to hear your stories, how long it lasted and how you handled it.
