When my mom was sixteen years old, she gave birth to me

When my mom was sixteen years old, she gave birth to me. My grandparents and the rest of my family really helped her take care of me so that she could continue to go to school and then after high school go to nursing school.

Not many kids can say that they went to their mom's high school graduation. ?

Although I had a great childhood, most of my friends were my mom's friends, meaning high school students. I loved them all, but I really wanted some friends my own age. Unfortunately, the only way I could do this is by creating an imaginary friend.

My imaginary friend's name was Sally and she was five years old, just like me. Sally was the same height as I was and she had brown hair. She always wore a big hat and she wore overalls. We both loved sports. We both loved to eat peanut butter and jelly sandwiches too.

Everyday, Sally and I would have conversations, play games, and watch television together. When I went somewhere she always used to come with me. When I was riding in the car, I would put on her seatbelt and I would hold her hand. Sally had a seat at the dinner table at my grandparent's house.

My mom and her friends used to laugh at me when I was talking to my imaginary friend. When they would take me to the park, I would run and go play with Sally. The kids at the park thought I was crazy too.

But Sally was my best friend and I would not get a new friend even if I could. We used to have so much fun together.

My mom and her best friend Jenn thought that I should not have an imaginary friend. They thought I should have some real friends.

So one night at my grandparent's house, we were having a family dinner. Jenn came over for dinner too.

Jenn tried to sit on Sally's seat and I said 'No! You are sitting on Sally!?

My family laughed but Jenn did not stand up. I was screaming and crying. I said, 'Please!? but Jenn did not move.

Sally died that day. I lost my best friend. I buried Sally in the backyard where I buried my hamster. I was sad.

But, finally I made some real friends and I was really happy. I forgot about Sally my imaginary friend.

"dio" does not have an accent (since the spelling reform in 1959)
"dieciséis", "tenía" are written with accent
"jugabamos juegos" is not regarded as correct in all countries (as it is an imitation from English); "jugábamos a juegos" is more standard.
"burlarse de mí": correct spelling + accent.

I can help you.
Cuando mi madre tenía dieciseis años, me dió a luz. Mis abuelos y el resto de mi familia realmente la ayudaron a cuidarme, por lo cual ella pudo continuar yendo a la escuela, luego terminar la escuela secundaria e ir al colegio de enfermería.

No muchos niños pueden decir que fueron a la graduación de sus madres de la escuela secundaria.

A pesar de todo tuve una infancia agradable. La mayoria de mis amigos eran los
amigos de mi madre,es decir, estudiantes de secundaria. Yo lo adoraba, pero quería tener amigos de mi propia edad. Desafortunadamente la única manera de que esto fuera posible era creando un amigo imaginario.

El nombre de mi amiga imaginaria era Sally, y tenía cinco justo como yo. Sally tenía mi misma altura que y el cabello color marrón. Ella siempre vestía con grandes sombreros y overales. Ambas amábamos el deporte. Ambas amábamos comer manteca de maní y sandwiches de mermelada también.

Todos los días, Sally y yo teníamos conversaciones, jugabamos juegos y mirabamos televisión juntas. Cuando yo iba a algún lado ella siempre aconstumbraba a venir conmigo. Cuando yo iba sentada en el auto, le ponía el cinturón de seguridad y le sostenía la mano. Sally tenía un asiento propio en la mesa de cenar en la casa de mis abuelos.
Mi madre y sus amigas solían buslarse de mi cuando yo le hablaba a mi amiga imaginaria. Cuando iba al parque, yo corría y jugaba con Sally. Los niños del parque pensaba que estaba loca.
Pero Sally era mi mejor amiga y no quería conseguir otra aunque tuvier la oportunidad. Solíamos divertirnos mucho juntas.
Mi madre y su mejor amiga Jenn pensaron que tal vez yo no debería de tener una amiga imaginaria. Pensaron que debía tener amigos reales.
Así fue que una noche en la casa de mis abuelos, estabamos teniendo una cena. Jenn vino a comer también.
Jenn intentó sentarse en el asiento de Sally y yo le dije "¡No!, te estás sentando sobre Sally"
Mi familia se burlaba pero Jenn no se movía. Yo estaba llorando y gritando. Yo le dije "¡Por Favor!" Pero Jenn no se movió.
Sally murió ese día. Perdí a mi mejor amiga. Yo enterré a Sally en el jardín trasero donde estaba mi hamster. Estaba mal.
Pero, finalmente hice de algunos nuevos reales amigosy me sentía feliz. Me olvidé de mi amiga imaginaria Sally.

If this traslation is usefull for you, let me know. Good Luck!
