I’m a compensated member of the Netflix Stream Team.
Everyone has their ‘yin’ to their ‘yang,’ their ‘cream’ to their ‘coffee,’ and their ‘peas’ to their ‘carrots.’ Who is that person for you? Is it your mother, your sister, your best friend, or daughter?
My 7yo daughter recently bought BFF necklaces for one of her friends. My 10yo has Skype dates with his BFF back in San Antonio while he plays soccer at lunch with one of his new, inseparable friends here in NC. My 6yo still asks when we’re moving back to San Antonio so he can play with his neighbor BFF there, but he’s met some great new friends at school and just experienced his first sleepover last night (OMG!)
It does my heart good to see them making these meaningful friendships. I remember my childhood friendships at these ages, and love reliving my childhood through their eyes though their experiences.
