Friends….How Many Of Us Have Them?

Friends Til The End

This past weekend, I witnessed something completely unbelievable, something that made me roll my eyes in disbelief more than just a couple times. It was amazing, it was scary, it was remarkable all at the same time. I honestly couldn’t believe what was unfolding right in front of me. Once I reveal what I witnessed to you guys, I totally expect to hear a universal gasp all throughout the interwebs. Okay, brace yourselves people, the moment is here; this past weekend, I saw with my own two eyes, a little boy that could hold his own in terms of spotlight time while Tre was in the room AT THE SAME TIME

Okay, give me a moment to explain; because I know that now that the breath is back in your lungs, you guys are have to be wondering who this super child is. Because as a faithful reader of DFB, you all know that Tre is definitely a force to be reckoned with. From the various posts here at our site, you guys all know that Tre is the life of the party. As a matter of fact, Tre IS the party; he refuses to play the background and allow others to outshine him. I don’t believe it’s an arrogance thing on his part, I just feel that it’s who he is and people are genuinely drawn to his personality. As you can see, given Tre’s indistinguishable personality, seeing another child displaying the exact same qualities was quite overwhelming. I didn’t think it was possible to see two totally upbeat, outgoing, and extremely intelligent 4 year old little boys in the same room was a mind bending experience.

As it turns out, this little boy (A-Boogie as we’ll call him), is Tre’s best friend. They hang out a few times a week and they just click, they are two firecrackers when they’re together. They are both in a Moms club that Fefe belongs too and have been hanging out regularly for quite some time. Unfortunately, I haven’t been too privy to these interactions as they typically take place during work hours. But this past weekend, was Daddy time and I took Tre to an event entitled “Let’s Get Buggy” and I heard through the grapevine that A-Boogie was going to be in attendance as well, so I was looking forward to the opportunity of seeing these two in action.

From the very beginning I could tell exactly why these two got along so well. A-Boogie saw Tre and felt it necessary to inform the entire room that “Tre, his best friend in the entire whole wide world was here to see some bugs”. Tre in return decided that pointing out how “completely, totally, awesome A-Boogie’s rain boots were” to several people as he ran over to give him a hug. All of this was before the class even started, once it did, things got even worse. These two were lighting it up from the 3-point line in rapid succession. Informing the instructor of random tidbits of information as she was attempting to convey important facts about bugs.

For instance, as the instructor pulled out a really huge looking spider and asked the kids if they knew what it was, A-Boogie quickly jumped in to crush the dreams of a fellow bystander who gleefully answered that it was a spider. A-Boogie nearly screams out “That’s definitely not a spider” with a time that exuded extreme confidence. When the little boy tried to defend his spider position, A-Boogie jumped in and quickly dropped the final blow: “wanna know how I know that’s definitely not a spider? Because it’s a tarantula,”. Now as faithful readers here, does that or does that not sound like a line straight out of Tre’s rhyme book?

Tre complemented A-Boogie’s outgoing personality well, boastfully informing the instructor and other kids that he collects ladybugs and that’s why he knows so much about them, that A-Boogie is his best friend, and that when you see roaches you have to kill them super fast. Talk about projecting an unwanted impression! Now I’m sitting here with 30 different people looking at me as if I’m training a 4 year old roach assassin. Of all bugs, why did it have to be roaches that Tre decided to raise a lynchmob against?

The dressed him as an ANT, why could't he announce that you NEED to kill ants?

These two carried on in this fashion for the duration of the class. Talking to each other, refusing to sit on the carpet unless they were right next to each other, giving out reckless BFF hugs, and disrupting the learning environment with a double dose of charm and charisma. No one seemed to mind, the other parents found the two of them humorous and enjoyable. But this was only a one hour class, I quiver when I think that there is a strong possibility that these two guys may end up in the same kindergarten class together. I’m currently generating handmade “I’m sorry” cards for their teacher just in case, because I already know that whoever that unfortunate teacher may be, retirement is sure to come early for him or her.

Can You Feel The Bromance???

Ultimately, I was extremely happy that I got to witness Tre interact with someone of his own caliper and see him engaged in a truly genuine friendship. Plus A-Boogie’s Dad was there as well and naturally since we both have totally awesome kids, it means that we both are totally awesome as well, so I think we’ll end up being good buds just like Tre and A-Boogie.

@The Father of Five, Man, I’m telling ya, by the time high school rolls around, I won’t have any money left, and I most likely won’t be able to run anymore due to exhaustion, lol.

But you are right, the rain boots were too cool. It kind of made me sad because I never had any cool ones like that when I was a kid, so of course I am now obligated to go get Tre a pair.

I’m SO glad you got a chance to see Tre in action with his Best Friend. They are so funny together. I have to agree that we definitely need to go ahead and make I’m sorry cards in advance for their teacher, lol. I so love how on the last pic Tre has his arm resting on A-Boogies back lol.

I heard these same stories when the boys got home on Friday night and laughed hard! I’m pretty sure in addition to handmade cards, we should also start budgeting for flowers, chocolates and possibly gift cards.

@A-Boogie’s Mama, haha, great suggestion! If we pool our funds together, we “may” have enough to get through half a school year.

Too funny! I’m secretly hoping they end up in the same kindergarten class. I still can’t believe that it’s that time already! Time flies

@Chev, secretly hoping huh? Well I hope your also secretly preparing for a surprise visit from Tre when he gets suspended from Kindergarten, lol. We’ll send him your way to teach him a lesson.

Attay Boys!

Those two are so cute together! I got to see them first hand when I came to visit. It was Tre’s birthday party, and the two of them isolated themselves and barely played with the other guest. I don’t think it mattered to Tre who was at his party as long as his best friend Alex was there. I hope they are in the same class too. Their teacher will definitely have her hands full with them! lol

What is this I hear? Threadstone Jr?

A-Boogie, I love it! Awesome post, it was great to see the dynamic duo in action. I don’t think Alex could have said “DEFINITELY NOT A SPIDER” any louder. I’m sure I should have been more embarrassed at that moment but you just can’t help letting a little pride show through when you see your son attempting to exert dominance over fellow children. Henceforth, my son will be known as A-Boogie to all.
