I often hear that Gavin has a really great imagination. He being my first, I'm not really sure what's "the norm" but he does seem really creative and imaginitive to me. I try and write down a lot of the things he says or comes up with, but I really could do better at it.
He really likes to pretend we are different people. Mostly we pretend that someone is Phoebe (our old dog) and someone is Carlie (Phoebe's new master). If he is the one being Carlie, he always likes to point out that he is a "boy" Carlie, not the girl Carlie. It's funny how into gender he is.
The other day he watched Aladdin and as soon as it was over he informed me that he was going to be Aladdin, I was the genie and Billsy was Abu. He kept telling me how he needed a magic carpet. I got the rug from the front door and set it down and told him he could use that. It apparently wasn't good enough because he really wanted me to let him fly on it. I tried to explain that magic carpets just aren't real and there wasn't anyway for him to fly on it and if I lifted him up on it he would just fall off. Boy was I wrong....
He sure found a way! Now if that's no imaginative, I don't know what is.
