It was with such unimaginable luck and good fortune that my friend Missy and I had kids within 2 months of each other. Ever since they were born we have hoped and dreamed that our boys would love each other the way we do and become the very best of friends, as we are. To that end we have gotten Joseph & Jack together almost every week for the past 4 years. Four YEARS of playdates! Oh, the adventures we've had. Museums, water parks, playgrounds, pools, lunches, zoos, aquariums, train shows......you name it, we did it.
But as they say, all good things must come to an end. Today was the very last of our regularly scheduled playdates. Joseph starts school on Monday, and Jack the following week. Both of our little guys will be in school 5 days a week so we won't be able to get them together as frequently. We'll still see each other often enough, but we will dearly miss our special times with our wonderful friends. Our only consolation is knowing that in fact Joseph & Jack really do consider themselves best friends, and we're going to be darn sure that never changes.
