This morning we were rushing out the door to the grocery store because I overestimated how much toilet paper we had left when I went to the store a couple days ago (to avoid the crowds).
I told Lovebug to grab a friend (one of her many stuffed animals) to bring with her, and she came running back with her parrot/macaw saying, “I got my BEST BUDDY!”.
Me: “BEST buddy? Wow! Even more than Peanut?”. Peanut is her elephant that has been her best friend since Christmas 2007.
Lovebug: “No, (with the DUH tone) Peanut is my best FRIEND. Macaw is my best BUDDY”
Me: “What’s the difference?”
LB (said in her best annoyed teenager voice): “Friend starts with an F, and Buddy starts with a B. Friend ends in D, and Buddy ends in Y.”
Oh yea, silly me. How in the world did I not know the difference between those two words?
I love my little literal girl!! She makes me smile. Every single day.
