Are you the type of person that has a lot of friends/acquaintances or just a handful of really good friends? I can tell you I have exactly TWO good girlfriends, ones that I call my BFFs. I can call on these two for anything and everything and even when we haven't talked for a while we always pick up right where we left off and we always know we are there for each other. No matter what. These girls have seen me through my lowest lows and my highest highs and have never judged me, let me down or forgotten about me. Seeing that I'm an only child, I'd say these two are the closest thing to sisters I can imagine. I mean, we've been friends since we were in kindergarten, after all. You might remember them, The Pregnants and I.
When I was approached to watch and review the special edition of The Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh with my daughter Kendall I was 100% on board. I have loved Winnie the Pooh since I was a baby (my nursery was decorated in Winnie the Pooh) and I love the message that you get when watching it. Friendship is important. Friendship is magical. Friends come in all shapes and sizes and all offer their own strengths to the relationship. Tigger is silly, bouncy, hyper, and always looking for a great time, much like my friend Kelly (on the left). Christopher Robin is compassionate and someone that others look up to, much like my friend Katie (middle). Both are very different but equally important in our friendship equation.
As Kendall gets ready to start preschool this fall I think about the friendships she will create. This will be her first time making friends on her own. You know, ones that she chooses. Ones that aren't just the kids of mommy's friends and therefore, by default, are her friends. I hope she chooses friends as good as the ones I have. I hope that the people she chooses to surround herself with lift her up. I hope that they help her to be the best Kendall she can be. I hope they never let her down. I hope they are always honest. I hope that they are trustworthy and dependable.
In return I wonder what type of friend Kendall will be. She's got a good heart. She truly cares about others and is very helpful. She's also fun, wild, and always down for a good time which is what usually draws people to her, even at her young age. All the hopes that I have for her friends, I also wish for her. I want her to be the type of girl that everyone loves and no one has a negative thing to say about. I hope, if nothing else, she learns from my friendships. Just because I don't have many friends doesn't mean that the ones I do have aren't worth more. I prefer my close-knit group to a large group any day. I know that we are inseparable (even though Katie moved away) and nothing will ever come between us. That's what a true friendship is, in my book.
