Because you’re my best friend

George’s best friend is moving away.

Growing George

I will look for you in the morning at nursery and again when I wake up from my nap.

I will save you a seat at breakfast because I will always be at the table before you.

George and Niall sharing a joke. George and Niall sharing a joke.

I will reach out my hand to you when I’m diving into the ball pool and pretend you are there jumping in with me.

I will tell you to be careful when you’ve bumped me on the head.

I will read you stories, wrestle with you and wrap my arms around you when you are sad.

I will cause mischief on your behalf and blame you because you left me.

And, in between reading up about dogs that don’t do ballet (or do they?), how to hide lions, and tigers who come to tea, you’ve been burning the night light at both ends. There was a Toddle Waddle, which tested you to the limit. The training was tough but you triumphed and raised £140 to help other babies living with the effects of Meningitis.

There’s been parties, parks, painting and plenty of paddling in pools. You and your penguin have even partaken in a spot of international travel to Portugal
