I love my friends! I love having that special group people that I share my inner most thoughts with. You know those friends that you can laze about with all day and not say much at all and it's perfect, or with who you can talk for hours and hours about everything. Those few that have been there for you and seen you at your worst and love you anyway. The ones that have celebrated your triumphs, and picked you up when you've stumbled. They are people that listen to you rant about your husband/boss/family, raging with you in solidarity, but also will tell you to 'get over it and move on' when needed. I love my besties, they're BFFs forever.
My monkey has a special BFF already - Miss Lolly is the gorgeous daughter of a wonderful mama-friend of mine. They are 2 weeks apart in age and have been hanging together since they were about 2 months old. Miss Lolly has been hanging out at Casa Clements a lot over the last few days with Kahu, and it is just gorgeous watching their special friendship develop.
My hope is that my baby boy is as lucky in his friendships as I am in mine, and watching these 2 monkeys together I can see he's going to be just fine.
