GREMLIN GRADUATION


What a crazy couple of days...where to even start. I will be back with details but my mind is still whirling and my heart is a little bit sad.

Tonight, my baby graduated from public school. They all looked so grown up...

As I sat there waiting for him to get his diploma, I flashed back to that first day that I took him to kindergarten...

I thought he would be scared...or might cry. He had been with me all alone for 2 years at that point and I thought he might miss me...

But he just said "bye Mom" and walked in the door and didn't look back...

Tonight as I sit here crying for my baby, I pray that he has the same courage in September when the next chapter in his life begins...

I have waited for this day for 9 years...and now that it is over, I am more sad than my words express...but I am proud too!!!

As always, to be continued......

Congratulations! Just wait until your baby graduates from high school, like mine did this past May! It's a very weird feeling, especially when I can remember almost every detail of his kindergarten graduation!!!
