Saying Goodbye


As far I'm concerned, these two have been friends forever. They were both in utero when I met LG's mom and one of Sam's first outings was a walk with the two of them. Over time locations have changed a bit...from Philly to Atlanta back to Philly for us. From California to Philly and then back to California for them. But we still keep in touch. Watching these two hooligans hang round together gave me a smile a mile wide. They left while Sam was sleeping, and he spent half an hour calling for his buddy before he believed me that they were gone. Then he looked at me and said, "That ok mommy. I see them later." It may take another year, but I'm guessing he's right!

That is so sweet! I love that the kids can remember their little friends even though they don't see them very often.

What a sweet shot.

The concept of time is still a little hazy to them at that age, so its ok! Sweet capture.

I love the idea of them having been friends since birth. My girls have some friends like that too. When I was growing up my dad was in the air force and we moved every three years. I have no life long friends.

Sniffle. This was the first time I remember not being ready to go home from vacation. Sure, it was nice to sleep in my own bed, but I sure could have used a good cup of coffee this morning. Also, you're a lot more pleasant to talk to first thing in the morning. I didn't realize it was possible to snarl at myself until this morning.

Oh, and tell SOB "Thanks"... every time we've seen a friggin candy cane since we left, a little someone asks "When we put up Chris'mas at my house? Inna front yard." Looks like we'll be scouring the aisles for pre-lit walkway candy canes this weekend...

It's so wild he wouldn't believe they'd gone. We left behind a whole bunch of friends in the UK that had known the BA from birth.
