My eldest and youngest did..................we had to hold their hands when we crossed the road and leave an empty chair at the table and everything:))

They appeared when they were about 3 and went at around 4.

My eldest had a little boy and girl................our youngest had a Granny who lived in the downstairs cupboard and left to live in Spain.

My son had one - once we were walking through the crowded market place, me pushing the empty buggy while son walked alongside and I did the most dreadful thing!!

I put my shopping bag in the buggy - not realising that said imaginary friend was taking a turn in the buggy!!! Sons screams turned every head in the market lol.

Both mine did - and like Jax - they had the same name - Patrick.
Eldest had hers for a short while, didn't speak about him much.
The youngest told me her Patrick was an orphaned sweep boy who lived with his cruel grandfather. He died in a chimney accident (fell down it I think). He was very skinny and emaciated.
She blamed him for writing on the walls - and basically doing all the naughty things LOL
In the end I had to tell her that, as he was her friend, she shouldn't let him do naughty things as she was responsible for him, and if he carried on, he wouldn't be welcome as it was very rude to misbehave when you are a guest in someone elses house!!
Writing on the walls stopped!!!!
