Evolution of Friendship; Easy to Difficult

When we're little;
Your at the park playing, another child your age arrives, you start to play together and your instant best friends.
It's easy, simple, effortless.

As children get a little older;
You ask the other child their name and ask, do you want to play with me? Play becomes more of a game, sometimes quiet elaborate, there is collaboration involved between you and your friends. Arguments erupt when you don't agree on the same concept. However the fights never last long and you are "BFF's" again. It's still easy to make friends.

Somewhere towards the middle/end of the elementary years "clicks" are formed at school. All of a sudden kids are separated into different groups. Were not allowed to be "everyone's" friend anymore. These "clicks" only get worse as we move into Junior High and High School. It makes it difficult for an outsider, for the new kid. Friendships become so much more complex. Something simple can cause a teenager to be judged, exiled, bullied.

WHY? Friendship is so easy when were little. Why does it have to become so difficult.

Peeping Tom
~ Wordless Wednesday ~ Link-up

I feel so violated... For over a week now every time I take a shower there is someone peeking in at me... She walks back and forth between the curtains peeking in at one end then the other.
I have intentionally splashed a bit of water on her when she sticks her head and it doesn't seem to faze her. One night after I gave my son a bath she was sitting in the wet tub.
She has a growing fascination with water... One of these days she may just jump in the shower with me. However I am afraid she wont like it and in her hast to get out I will be quite vulnerable to her claws standing there naked...

Gloomy Days... Asperger's Update

Hubby is gone training, again, apparently real world experience during a 7 month deployment isn't enough... It's only for a month, hopefully he will be back in time for my birthday on April 5th.

It has been raining and gloomy for the last week... Several nights it decided to pour rain and thunder in the middle of the night which wakes up my poor Booboo. Then he cant get back to sleep until it stops... Tomorrow officially begins Spring Break! Hopefully the weather will improve so we can get outside.
