I might be wrong...but I was under the impression that that is called imagination.

Lol, no I understand that but it is kinda excessive. He is ADHD, odd and possibly aspbergers. I just worry.

Don't worry, mom. That's totally typical behavior.

I feel better, thank you! My parents just do not believe in it since he is about to be 7. My 5 dd thinks she's a real princess and my parents said he needs to stop.

Your parents are crazy. Imagination is a good thing and should be encouraged. You're only a kid once....you know? There should be some magic.
