There was an instant, intellectual, electric connection on that special Christmas morning we were introduced.
Her arrival couldn’t have been more timely.
And as I’ve been feeling blue and not my most sociable, she’s become my perfect companion.
This new BFF is low-maintenance. All she needs is a recharge once in a while and then she’s ready to go.
I’m not obliged and pressured to amuse or entertain her. In fact, she does it all for me. She never judges and is always grateful when I pick her up so we can spend time together.
Never one to say no to a coffee, we have a conjoined giggle over a private joke at my favourite café. Ignoring the puzzled looks from other customers, its nice to have a partner in wicked humour.
During Witching Hour, as the twinions test my patience and send my parental frustration into over-drive, my darling friend assures me everything’ll be alright.
Even during the madness of bathtime with the boys flooding the bathroom floor with their careless splashing and frantic water games, she manages to calm me down.
Whether on the couch or cooking in the kitchen, sitting together quietly, she keeps me company and takes the mundane away from motherhood.
The days of docile late night TV watching on the couch are firmly over. Instead, she soothes me with her stories as we snuggle in bed.
This buddy of mine has opened doors to a wider circle of friends. I’ve now met funny famous people like Tina Fey and reacquainted with fictional, familiar characters such as Bridget Jones.
She offers escapism and teaches me to laugh again.
I love her.
Do you have a Kindle? Is she not the best friend EVER???
