Sorry for the delay of this post, but I was very busy with school.
Yes, even KiKa goes to school and just last week I started already overloaded with things to do.
Soon, I think I will make a post about the Montessori method, as well, to whet your curiosity and why not convince you that your children will love go to a Montessori school!!!
But today I want to talk about a very common thing among little and big girls: the BFF – Best Friends Forever!!!
Well, I used this excuse especially when my parents had the meeting with the school teachers!!!
The teachers always told them that I was talking too much with my classmate during class. My answer was always the same “Silvia also talk a lot during class”!!! ???
Obviously, I didn`t talk by myself!!! Use or say the name of my classmate with who I talked the most certainly it made me feel less alone and less in trouble with mom and dad.
I knew that Silvia was facing the same trouble with her parents!
How beautiful are the elementary friendships, a few ones remain impressed forever.
My school was a really small one we were 8 kids in class, 7 girls and 1 boy! Say it loud, poor him! ???
Even though we were just 8 kids, and we lived almost all in the same small village, growing up we all we have lost sight.
Weird, I don`t know how, but the only one that is still playing a fundamental role in my life is Silvia. Maybe 5 years of elementary school, 3 years of meddle school and other 5 of high school there was not enough for us, and so despite the different goals, dreams and distances, we continue to talk each other about us day after day. All the others? I don`t know, sometimes we heard from someone a news or sometimes we just get a facebook friend request!
It’s strange how life evolves, how many people we encounter growing, how many seem so important, and how many friends we have frozen forever with the pinkie promise.
Sofia is 11 years old and although I have only 25 years old I found out from her that the pinkie promise with friends is not anymore popular. Apparently now they use to put the names of their BFF in Instagram, a sort of “Warning she is my BFF”!!!
But what makes me laugh the most is how many times that BFF name changes!
When you’re a kid, friendship has a very simple and pure value that changes depending on who shares with you more candy!
I am convinced that some kind of friendship stay tie together because are special.
Take Silvia and I for example, from simple elementary school classmate we become real friends forever. I often wonder what tied us together from an early age, why this relationship has worked with her, and why with others it was just a worthless friendship.
In middle school we were in the same school but different classes just like high school, so we both met several different friends, and we both met a several different people.
We start to put big distance between us in college, I went to Venice she was in Sassari, Sardinia and then she went to Germany, I went to China now I’m in USA and she is about to leave for France. But every time we are always there for each other… in the begging we talk by our home phone, then by the messenger chat from Hotmail, and now by phone, skype, WhatsApp, but no matter what and when, we continue to talk more about us as if we were still sitting on those little elementary chairs.
So, do you think BFF really exist or are they just a cute and fun way to name your best friend of the moment?
I have always believed in BFF, and I still believe it. Silvia and I every time we see each other we`ll continue to make the pinkie promise, and even though when it`s not physical, well, just looking each other eyes we know that we are and we will always be for each other despite the miles that divide us.
Growing up I realized that the physical presence isn`t important, but the being-consciousness, that is worth a lot more, and I know that she’s there for me, and I’m there for her.
So, “Amica” I dedicate this post to let the world know that we have a record that not many people can say to have it too: we are Best Friends Forever!!!!
Let me know about your BFF in your comments….
I hope you enjoyed the post….
Kiss from KiKa
