If you’ve been following my blog, you will know that T has a best-friend named F. I’ve mentioned him countless times here. He is an important little person in my daughter’s life, in our life, especially since we have now become good friends too with his family. I’ve never shown his face before out of respect for S and C (his parents). But this time, I’ve asked permission from them to post the following photos just to show you how adorable this little V.I.P in my daughter’s life is. He is the cutest little boy in the world. Yes, I’m biased. But hey, this is my blog!
They first met at play-group (children under 2) and bonded over trains and cars. T and F loves trains and cars. I don’t really remember when exactly she declared that he was her best-friend, what I know is she started saying this after her second birthday.
The first photo was taken on T’s second birthday. F is just about a month older than T. This was after her party.
And this was taken on T’s third birthday. See how much they’ve grown? We took them out to celebrate on an impromptu birthday picnic and steam-train-ride. I wrote about that on this post.
Waiting for the steam-train to take us back to Launceston. Aren’t’ they loveliest little BFFs?
They are so good together. Don’t get me wrong, like all best-friends they also have their moments. You would hear T suddenly burst into tears and hear a little protest from F, sometimes it escalates but most times, you’ll hear them laughing. And F takes care of T, like really looks after her. One time, I wasn’t with them. They were out with F’s parents at the Farm shop. T and F were playing outside and there was one bigger and older boy who didn’t want T to play in the toy tractor. T burst into tears and when F saw this, he came bounding up, my husband was too far so he didn’t hear what F said to the big boy. But the bully backed down and and let T in. They also like to play “saving-each-other”. T plays a very good damsel-in-distress, when she needs “saving” F would come up to her with his “strong-big-hands” and save her. And she’d do the same for him, though admittedly, he does most of the “saving”.
I’m wondering though how long it will last. When do boys start ‘hating’ girls and vice-versa? Who knows? They might just skip that stage and just be friends… always. Wouldn’t that be nice?
