Reason #54 Why Having a Preschooler Rocks

When you’re four, to become someone’s friend, you need only ask them if they’d like to be your friend.

When you’re four, you truly believe that offering your friend a simple friendship bracelet means that you’ll be friends for life.

When you’re four, friendship is simple and pure.

And that is so lovely.

Katie and Sadie, daughter of my dear friend Rachel from Mommy Needs a Vacation.
Friends for life.

    And when you’re 30, to become someone’s friend, you need only send them a friend request.

    So very sweet, those two little angels…nothing like a good friend, is there?

  3. So sweet. What a precious moment.

  4. John

    I might have literally "awwwwwww'd" over here.

    I can imagine those bracelets are the very first thing the girls think about when they're getting ready for the day. :-)

  5. Krista

    Oh that is so sweet. I want to be that little and look at the world so wonderfully and innocently again.

    Future college roommates :)

    They are so cute :)

  7. Cheryl @ Mommypants sweet. I heard Sawyer ask a kid at the pool if he wanted to be his friend.

    Now we have to wait for a friend request to be approved.. ;)

  8. Jessica

    So sweet and totally jealous of all of you bloggers who live close to one another!

  9. midwestmomments

    Aw! That is so cute I want to cry!

  10. Elaine

    Oh my goodness, your daughter's are friends?? I melt. So sweet! And their bracelets are precious.

  11. mommyofamonster

    Ha! That's so true!!

  12. mommyofamonster

    So sweet…I love that your daughters are BFFs!

  13. @skywaitress

    So sweet. I wish it stayed that simple…

  14. So true. Sometimes I wish I could do the same as an adult though. Wouldn't it be great. Blogging friends sometime seem that way.

  15. Rachel

    SO FREAKING CUTE!!!! LOVE IT!! Katie & Sadie..their names even rhyme!!! :-)


  16. janaekrell

    So sweet!! I love how simple life is at 4. I love this age!!

  17. Kirsten

    How adorable…I am still friends with a girl I've known since I was 4 ! Love the bracelets and the sentiment. If it were only that easy for girls our age. Xo

    This is so true. I've been friends with a girl since were six months old, but there's something different about friendship that is created by the kids than friendship that is created by the parents.

    So Facebook is our version of pre-school? I like that analogy. And I've met Rachel! She's cool! I've had chic trendy cocktails with her in San Francisco.

  20. Ryan @TWM

    So true. Somewhere around five, a second potential answer to "Do you want to be my friend" emerges….. No.


  21. So, so true!! Every time we leave the house is an opportunity for my almost four year old to make a new friend.
