Every night I go to bed, I have thoughts swirling in my head. Things to do. Scrapbook pages I want to create. Gifts I want to make. Skills I want to learn. And, of course, daily happenings that I don't want to forget, but invariably will by tomorrow morning, only to pop up in a random thought weeks down the road. So, here I am. I may use this blog daily to empty my head and heart before cuddling up in my duvet, or as it may be, I may write in it once a month. Who knows. It is for me, but perhaps something I write or learn may spark a fire in someone else. Perhaps it may quiet a mind or make you feel like you are not alone out there. It is for me. But perhaps it is for you.

Ben and Kai

Ben and Kai...I don't know what it is with these two boys, but they just have to be friends.  They met when they were one year old at Playhouse daycare centre, spending every weekday together for almost two years.  When Ben left to go to his new daycare, Kai was beside himself and had a really had adjustment.  It is like Kai thinks Ben is his brother, and he definitely calls Ben his best bud.  Since leaving Playhouse almost two years ago now, they only have the opportunity to see each other every few months at most.  Days and months just get busy until Kai cuddles up to me one day with a sad face and says he misses his Ben.  So Tammy and I get on email or the phone and set-up a playdate.  As Ben lives now with his family in Coquitlam, it is a little more challenging to get together, but it is worth it to see them run and give each other a giant hug as if they haven't seen each other in years.  I don't know what it is with these two boys - they laugh, they share without fuss, they run around like tornados and couldn't be happier together.  I haven't yet had to step in to stop fighting or tears as they get along like two peas in a pod.  Who knows what the future will bring, but for now I wish them many more years of such a simple, easy friendship.  As Kai said in his email to Ben, "Kai loves Ben.  Ben is my best buddy."

  1. Ooooh cute boys! Ben is lucky to have such a cool kid as Kai for his best friend! And I have only seen these two together a couple times, but it sure is a cute friendship! If only all friendships were as easy to maintain as the friendship of four year olds!
