They've been friends since birth. They've bathed together, played together, celebrated holidays together. They've been in the same church classes, library classes and kickball teams. Being that they are full time kindergarten students now, these best friends have realized they are boy and girl, instead of inseparable. We went to his 6th birthday party a few weeks back, and I was so sad to see that their lives are somewhat different now. They don't get to see each other as much, and with school (they don't attend the same school), they have developed new friendships and different recess games to play. Slowly, so much of their lives are changing, and with that change, there is an expectation of growing apart.
Maybe someday, but today is not that day.
