Best Buddies, My Captured Moment

These are photos I took of Joe with his best buddy Fin at our festive pre-Christmas break. Every time I look at them I smile. Joe and Fin have been buddies since they were 6 months old. They met at nursery and have been best buddies ever since. It’s funny how fate and children bring friends together.

Best Buddies, My Captured Moment

Well, this pair who we call the terrible two were nearly 4 when we realised that we actually lived a stones throw away from each other. But just as we realised we moved further out into the countryside, I often think it is a shame for them, as they would have had years of playing out on their bikes had we not moved.

However, they also go to the same school so maybe that would be just a little too much time together. Their friendship meant that a great friendship developed between us parents, we now go away together just before Christmas every year and I would say they have become some of our closest friends. The wonderful thing is we have the same thoughts and opinions on parenting, so falling out over the boys is never an issue. If they have a spat, which face it kids do. We ignore it; let them sort it out themselves, which they always do. We never ever get involved.

They are a funny pair, 99% of the time they are the best of friends, when the 1% occurs they get over it very quickly. If one of them gets in trouble at School they can’t wait to grass each other up. But if another child tries to be nasty to one of them they close ranks. Kick one the other one most certainly limps.

I am so glad they found each other, and as families we have made so many happy memories. Such as our last break away together, it was the first year we shared a lodge. We decided that after 6 years we would give it a go, we booked a lodge with a games room, which would give them their own space.  Jack took his friend who he too has been friends with since nursery.  And I must say it was fantastic, they all had a whale of a time, I think the fact they had their own man cave really helped. But I honestly think the test of a friendship is sharing accommodation, and I am glad to say our families’ friendship passed the test.

    Ah bless them! What an amazing friendship to have. Lili has a friend like this, that she’s know since she was 9months old. They now go to different schools but every time they see each other they’re so happy and the friendship is stronger than ever. These shots are brilliant, they look so happy and cheeky! Thank you so much for linking up to #MyCapturedMoment xx

    Lovely! It’s so nice when friendship survives and grows like this. Our little girl will start school this September and we are desperately hoping that she will be assigned the same school as her best friend she attends nursery with. #MyCapturedMoment
