Julia’s besty is the darling Ryan, who has been her main gal pal since their preschool days. Now that they are kindergarteners, I can refer to preschool as the ‘old days’. I actually still know many of my friends that I’ve known since age 5! I’ll be so curious to see if Julia and Ryan will keep in touch with each other as adults and look back on these photos, laughing at their adorableness. (Or if they’ll want to slap me on the head for talking about them. . .)
Two very different, but equally darling Thanksgiving turkey masks. Looking for something to do on T-Day to occupy the kiddos? Easiest craft ever. Paper plates. Glue. Feathers, both of the real and cut-out variety. Cuteness results. I have no idea what kind of moment was transpiring here.
But the moment turned into an I-Can-Out-Silly-You contest. Everyone’s a winner in the I-Can-Out-Silly-You contest!
‘I Like You’, by Sandol Stoddard Warburg and Jacqueline Chwast pretty much nails friendship on its head. This is my favorite part:
“I like you because if I think I am going to throw up then you are really sorry, you don’t just pretend you are busy looking at the birdies and all that. You say maybe it was something you ate. You say the same thing happened to me one time. And the same thing did.”
A real friend is someone who empathizes when you barf, looks for clovers with you, laughs at your funnies, and likes you even if they can’t remember why.
Does anyone still keep up with their preschool or kindergarten buddies? Like I said, I am still in contact with several of mine! It’s amazing to look back and realize how much time has gone by. And by amazing, I mean, horrifically scary.
