    this reminds me of my wonderful. eldest daughter (nearly 6) who is in love with her first bf. there is such a beauty in the innocence of true friendship at this age. was most POed with her teacher today for sort of scoffing or poo-pooing the fact that my daughter & he are very close & even in class she likes to show him affection ie; hold hands, hug or sit with her hand on his lap. she made it seem like there was something more to it, that it was unacceptable & somehow ‘not right’ & that she’s warned my daughter not to do that at certain times in class. i felt sad. the innocence of true friends no matter what sex at this age is something we lose as we age. you have truly shown the beauty i feel when i see & hear how my daughter loves her friend, in her/their way…. xo

    beautiful and somehow fragile…
    reminds me of my childhood: i had a boy, a real friend, since the age of two :) we used to spend long summers in local woods imagining that we were all alone in the whole world and had to survive eating wild sorrel and berries… it was a wonderful time!
    thank you for bringing back my memories :)

  • One of my first real friends was a boy too….Thank you Irina….so happy you like this :) xx
