Our best family friend, the husband is from Nova Scotia. His dad still lives there. Every other year, my bestie takes her (2) girls and goes and visits grandma and grandpa in Canada, while her husband remains here to work. This was the year they left… for 6 WEEKS!
That’s almost all of the summer. Our kids are used to seeing each other just about every single day.
So the day finally arrived, I suggested making a poster to welcome them back home. “But mom, I don’t know how to draw and make our letters big on that roll of poster paper.”
Oh, silly child. That’s what the computer is for…I will design some letters, print out, you both color, cut out the letter, and we’ll glue to the poster paper! We did all this work, the attention to detail, marvelous! We drove to their house, the dad let us in, we hung it…he left to LAX to pick the girls up…
…and I forgot to take a photo of our hard work to record that memory. Luckily, my friend posted it on Facebook the following morning. Because you see…
…The majority of the year, I’m not necessarily the best-est best friend a person could have, but this instant, damn it – I am! We rocked it! And I needed that evidence to show just how awesome of a friend we are, even if it’s only 1 day of the year. (but who’s tracking that?)
See…don’t you want to be our friend? By the way, we got a concert to go to this weekend, can you watch our kids?
