Foreversville, Bunny has been Jack's ultimate compadre.
Technically, that is still true.
However, there's a little competition brewing. From Dee Da, of all people!
I feel like Bunny is the one who's full of unconditional love and support and enthusiasm. And for Jack, that is what has made Bunny his best friend for ever and ever. Pardon my French, but when four year old shit gets deep, it's Bunny that Jack runs for.
On the other hand, I feel like Dee Da is the buddy who lopes in with the well-timed joke and makes Jack laugh. And that Jack is realizing the value of having another best friend, too. Maybe even, a sarcastic, dotted one.
Case in point: Jack took Dee Da to Show and Tell last week. I mean, hold the phone, people.
On a related note, I was out of town last week. And I can confidently say that my risk-averse self would NEVER have let Jack take Dee Da to show and tell, for the utter fear of WHAT IF SOMETHING HAPPENS???
But, I give Durel full SuperDad credit. He let Jack take Dee Da. Dee Da came, saw, and conquered. And everything was OK.
Hope you are surprised by who may or may not be calling the shots today.
