Best Friends

My daughter officially has her first best friend. Their daddies work together and we now live within walking distance. They both have February birthdays and little brothers with January birthdays. They love pink, and sprinklers, and being super silly. I love hearing my daughter talk about her best friend, and I love seeing the girls say "I love you! See you tomorrow" and give each other big hugs and kisses when they say goodbye at the end of a fun day. In two weeks they will start preschool and be in the same class.

It breaks my heart that in a couple of years they might not be living near each other. I hate that military people move every few years and you get so attached to people, only to have to move. I can only hope that the daddies will be stationed at the same band again so the girls can be reunited. Maybe this will be a good lesson in everlasting friendship? Maybe they will be email pen pals and skype and send each other drawings in the mail? All I can do is make sure their time together is fun and hope!
