How to Make Friends - A Refresher Course


On the way home from Q's soccer game this evening, A proudly declared that he'd made four new friends at the game. He then shared with me the secrets of his success. For anyone who doesn't remember what it was like to be a first-grader, here's the step-by-step procedure for beginning a life-long friendship:


  • Ask: "Do you want to be friends?"

  • Then ask: "How old are you?"

  • Finally, ask: "What's your name?"


That's all it takes. At least according to my six-year-old.

LOL- I love this. Kindergarten is a bit slower at asking the third question... she has friends and still doesn't know their names!

Maybe that's where I have gone wrong.
At church when I ask the new women how old they are they look at me like I have a hand growing out of the top of my head and then turn around and run.
I'm not very popular as you can imagine!! giggle giggle

Of course, I'm joking but isn't it so easy to be a kid. Love it!
