I know it may seem silly, but my friend Leslie and I have had these nicknames for each other since we were three years old. She is Peanut Butter and I am Jelly. You see, Les and I went to preschool together at Oak Hill Montessori and our moms carpooled since we lived so close to each other. We would usually go to either my house or hers after preschool and whenever our mom’s would ask us what we wanted for lunch, I would say "peanut butter" and she would finish it by saying "jelly"!
Now my dear old friend is on her way to motherhood…just 6-7 more weeks or so and her little one will arrive 🙂 One of Leslie’s friends threw a baby shower last night at her home in Coon Rapids. All went well (except the fact that I got lost because my exit off the freeway was closed and had to take a 10 mile detour).
I feel very fortunate that I was able to reconnect with one of my oldest (or longest?) friends. It will be fun to see Leslie as a mother!
