I recently saw a picture idea on Pinterest of two pregnant women. They were belly to belly holding a sign that read "Best Friends" with arrows pointing to their bellies. This got me thinking...
My daughters' ages align with a number of my friends' and coworkers' kids. Yesterday while standing in the hall talking with a few of these people I started thing about whether or not my kids will be friends with theirs. Both of these coworkers have / will have a kid who will grow up along side each of my daughters. They will go to the same school and be in the same grade and maybe even the same class.
I do consider these coworkers as my friends, but would we naturally have found friendships if we didn't have to work with each other? We are all very different; would our personalities have gotten along well?
What about our kids?
If my daughters are a lot like me and her son and her daughter are just like them, will these two pairs get along? Will we all get together over the summer to go swimming and have to hear from our back seats, "Do we HAVE to go play with them!?"...or will they already be planning on how they can connive their way into another play date or sleepover with their best friend once we get there?
I am hoping for the latter.
Either way, I am excited to see our kids grow up together.
