Before I met these 2, I didn't know that very young children could have best friends. But from the moment Ellis and C met, that was it. They were inseparable. From about age 2, these boys have been the best of best friends - each other's "person".
Now they live at opposite ends of the country, and while Facetime can bridge some of the gap, there is nothing like having your bestie with you. They disappear off for as long as we let them, resurfacing only for food.
