Best Friend Fun

I just realized that I titled Monday's post "Weekend Fun" and then titled Tuesday's post "Father's Day Fun." So, coming at ya this Wednesday with "Best Friend Fun."

Camille has entered the best friend phase. Ooooh, this one I like. 

"Mama. You're my besssssst friend."
"Mama. You're my besssssst buddy."

Where do kids even really pick up on this? Older kids? Television shows, movies? Do they understand the concept of a best friend? What does it really mean to Camille -- the one that lets them choose their pajamas at night? The popsicle-giver? The knower of the code to unlock the iPad?

Regardless, I love it when she tells me that I am hers.

That photo is us yesterday after eating lunch on the screened porch. She asked me to "rub her hair" and she laid her head in my lap and closed her eyes. This is a child who rarely sits still and is SO sweet but not necessarily snuggly. I'll take it. 

I know this "you're my best friend, Mama" stage won't last forever. It will go away for a while, long enough to dent my heart, and then maybe when she's a young adult herself, she MIGHT JUST MIGHT think I'm her best friend again, if I'm lucky. My mom and I consider each other besties. 

And because I know it will wax and wane, that's why I wanted to document it.

Best friend FUN.
