We Miss Our Friends

LP is already learning some of the hard things about growing up. We have seen much less of our friends this year since they started school and everyone goes on different days. Our bi-weekly playdates phased out and we have only managed to see Munchkinetta and Barefoot Princess once since Christmas, and we haven't seen Buby since before Christmas.

It is so hard to explain to a 3 year old why they can't just see their friends whenever they want anymore. LP has been playing with pretend BP lately, and was having a sleepover with pretend BP last night when she suddenly announced that she didn't want pretend BP anymore, she wants her real BP. My heart broke this morning when LP told me that her friends don't love her anymore. When I asked her why she would think that, she told me that they never play with her anymore.

That says so much about LP, BP, and her friends. Sometimes it is so hard for us older folks to understand that little folks do have such a great depth of feeling. I guess that there is nuch to be looked forward to in the future.......

We miss u too and will see much more of you soon!

Buby + Bleu said...

We miss hanging out with you guys, too! Buby made a similiar statement at the diner table recently. He wanted to know when he could see his friends again, and it broke my heart! They never forget their first friends... he talks about Gilly, Lily, Grace constantly. We'll have to make more of an effort to meet up, even with our hectic schedules.
