Writing that post started me thinking about my first friends, the ones I've known since I was mere moments old. Today I want to introduce them to you.
Here I am with Baby:
|I think we're watching TV. Aren't we adorable? ;-)|
And here is a younger version of me with my friends Panda Bear and Mouse:
|I'm not sure what that look on my face is all about...|
I know: I wasn't very creative at naming things back in my childhood years, but I assure you that age has brought wisdom in that respect. My kids' names are not Boy and Girl. I call them He and She. ;-)
Regardless of their uninspired names, Baby, Panda Bear, Mouse, and I have enjoyed a friendship that has lasted all my thirty-something years. They've traveled with me from state to state and house to house, and they're among the possessions I intend to pass down to my children someday.
So tell me, who were your first friends—real or, as in my case, stuffed?
