This week was “Graduation Week” at a bunch of local schools. My kids aren’t graduating from any milestone grade this year, but I still tear up when I see any of my friends’ kids graduate. It’s such a sweet achievement.
At every graduation “ceremony,” in order to prevent the waterworks from ruining my mascara, I think back to Colin’s pre-school graduation a couple of years ago.
After his pre-school class sang several sweet songs with their cute little graduation hats on, the teacher was getting ready to hand out diplomas. She picked one up and said, “And, now, what you’ve all been waiting for…”
Colin, without missing a beat, shouted out, “Cookies and juice!”
That’s my boy.
