True Friendship Lasts Forever

Today's playdate. Waffles for lunch, what could be better?
My son has a great friend. These boys have been the bestest of friends since they were itty-bitty preschoolers. Six years later the friendship continues to grow strong. How is it that these two boys who don't live in the same neighborhood or go to the same school remain such close friends after all these years? I'll tell you how...parental commitment. My son's friend's mom and I make a concerted effort to keep playdates on the schedule year after year. Good friends are hard to find and when you find a good one, you don't want to let it go. But, the boys are young and it's not like they could schedule their own playdates by phoning each other and penciling each other into their own schedules. So to my son's best friend's mom, I want you to know that I'm grateful for your own commitment and steadfastness to our sons' friendship. Because we as parents make the effort, they are building a relationship that will last a lifetime - no matter where our sons end up - near or far. 
And what playdate would be complete without LEGO Hero Factory?

I've got a few friends like that from childhood that are such a blessing to me. Although we don't talk regularly or see each other often, when we do, we immediately pick up where we left off because we have so much history together from our childhood. Keep those childhood friendships going - it's what warms the heart when you're older.

Do you have any childhood friendships that have survived into adulthood? How do you keep in touch and how often?

I just wanted to thank you for your effort in building our sons' friendship. I have also enjoyed building our friendship as well. I missed our lunches out last year and the conversations that came with it. When school starts up again this fall we may have to get together for breakfast or just for a walk around the block. Oh, and by the way, my son said that waffles for lunch is an excellent idea! Thank you again for opening your home and your hearts to my little man. Christa
