the graduate

My daughter finished Kindergarten yesterday. Come last night they had a graduation ceremony. I thought it was horribly over the top. For a Kindergarten Graduation. Or a wedding.

The kids had practiced for weeks. They even took a bus over on Friday morning to rehearse “in the facility.”  Ridiculous! I mean this is KINDERGARTEN after all.

I made fun of the concept. I thought it was dumb and so, so very over the top. Let me repeat, this is dumb and over the top for a kindergarten graduation. These kids are 5 and 6 years old.

Then this happened:


Look at that smile!  I had tears on my cheeks simply from her joy.

I love you, Peanut.  And thank you to her school for their amazing, over the top graduation!

As a surprise, the kids had also dressed up in costumes and then took pictures illustrating what they want to be when they grow up.  Here’s my Hannah:

I think she looks amazing with her Emmy!!!

  1. Much like Girlie’s ballet performance, which I b*’d and moaned about the craziness of (and it WAS crazy) – I also cried when Girlie danced. So I get it. And H-bomb looked absolutely precious.
    But mom used to say, “If they do this now, what do they have to look forward to?” And whenever this stuff happens for Girlie, I think about that and wonder.
    Happy Kindergarten Graduation H-bomb!

  2. Thanks for preparing me for waterworks in about 2 weeks! She is so darling! Somehow the part we will have en Espanol will make me even more of a blubbering idiot… so I better buckle down.
