This post is part of Capital Mom’s Monday Moments.  This week’s theme is: Friendship.

I’ve always tried to push my kids to find friends.  We go to the park and I tell them to go have fun and play.  I take them to play dates and tell them they are being silly for being so shy.

I beam when my daughter comes home from school chatting about her 2 new best friends or when she tells me after playing with a neighbour that she is her best friend.  I love that my son blushes and shyly cops to the fact that his day home playmate is his best friend and he loves him.

But most of all I love that they are best friends.  Who better to have fights with and make up and share and cry with as practice than your sibling?
