You graduated from PreK last week! The weeks leading up to this I would go through waves of happiness to sadness. Finally I will have both my boys at the same school. My life and driving schedule will be instantly simplified. But, you are my youngest – my baby. I felt your innocence was going to be gone just because you are starting Kindergarten in the fall. When I watched you walk across the stage to get your certificate you turned and waved to daddy and I, and I lost it. The tears could not be stopped. You were so proud and had the biggest grin. A grandmother sitting next to me leaned over and said, “just wait until they graduate college” I’m sure the tears will be flowing that day as well, but let’s not get ahead of ourselves. I’m going to remind myself to enjoy every bit of your innocence and playfulness. All the messes you make. The bazillions of toys you insist on bringing out to play with, because it all just happens too quickly. This summer will be filled with lunches in the teepee, dinosaurs and of course your sidekick Louis.
As much as you drive your momma crazy, the love I have for you is triple the size!
