My Friend {The Ordinary Moments}

Little Man has had LP by his side literally since he was born. She has been his constant companion, his friend and sibling. She is the first person he looks for in the morning and the one he wants to say good night to before bed. They have just the best relationship.

But up until now Little Man hasn’t called LP anything. He hasn’t said her name or a variation of her name. When we ask him what her name is he just makes a hmm noise and has his thinking face on. But when we ask him where LP is, and say her name, he’ll happily point to her. He knows her name, he just hasn’t said it yet.

But recently this changed. Little Man decided he would start to call LP something, that he would have his own name for her. Now, when Little Man wants to talk about his sister he’ll call her ‘my friend’ and it makes my heart swell.

In LP Little Man has a ready made friend. For them to love each other unconditionally and to be friends are two of the only things I could want for them as siblings and it seems Little Man has realised that already. LP is his sister. She’s his sibling. More than anything though, she is his friend.

  1. My girls idolise their brother and fortunately for the most he is so patient and loving with them. We did wonder with he age gap as he got a bit bigger that they would annoy him but he just loves them and it’s so lovely to see their bond x

  2. Awww, this is too cute. It’s always so lovely to hear your children refer to their siblings as their friends; because thats what I think we all hope for when we have them. Mine like calling each other their “bestest friend” which I always love hearing. x
