Fun Monday

Willowtree hosts today's Fun Monday.
And the question today is:

"Tell us about your best friend. Particularly things like: where you first met, how long you've been friends and why you think you are best friends"

I guess offline life is meant.

Well, at the moment I don't have a BEST friend.
I hardly see anyone as the children keep me far too bussy and tied to the house.

But of the people I know, the best friend is someone who is on vacation now.

We met a few years ago, because her and my children played together.
She came here with a complaint about one of my girls, so the start of our friendship was not well.
Especially not when I started to ask for facts and it turned out it was not my child, but her child that was in the wrong.

We know each other for about 5 years now.

In the beginning we used to drink coffee each week, which soon changed when her children all went to school.
Now I'm only invited when she needs someone to watch her children or water the pants during the vacation.

It's kind of disappointing when people deal with others this way.
On the other hand... as long as the children are friends it's good to know the parents well.

I have had "friends" that have turned out this way. It is most unfortunate. They don't make the "best of the best" on my list that's for sure!

I hesitate to say that sounds a one sided friendship -don't let her take advantage of you even if your children are friends.

when I was a kid we called them "fair-weather friends."

I guess some friendships are for a shorter time than others. Then again, some friendships last a lifetime. I wish for you a lifetime of friendships. Who knows maybe that will be with your children.

Through experience I found that friends who are mothers of my children's friends do not fall into the category of good friend but I agree that it is nice to know your children's friends parents.

Sadly, not all best friends remain that way, but people do change, as do friendships.

I have friends like that - one of whom considers me her 'best friend' - but I think it's b/c I do so much for her - let her use me, etc. Our kids grew up together - but the relationship is unbalanced.

Don't be taken advantage of!

Just because your children are friends, doesn't mean you should be stepped on!

my dearest girlfriend & i are separated by 600 miles and have been for 9 years now. in our moves i have never been able to get to that special place with another acquaintance. i take much solace & joy in the fact that my husband & i are very close & that i am raising my children into fine young adults (though none of them qualify for a girlfriend!).

"Sadly, not all best friends remain that way, but people do change, as do friendships. " that's what i have found as well
