Thing One and Thing Two

Ready for Kindergarten!

Thing One graduated from preschool this weekend. I’ve been making fun of the concept of a Preschool Graduation all week. REALLY? They are wearing caps and gowns? REALLY? This seems a little silly, don’t you think? And then…what did I do? I cried through the entire thing. Partly because my daughter is growing up and partly because I’m going to miss her teacher. I hope she’s still teaching Pre-K when Wes gets there in two years. She’s amazing. But – yeah. I cried during my daughter’s preschool graduation. Because I am lame.

I promise this is not real

Thing Two turned THREE. We took him to a fancy Kid’s salon in town to get his summer haircut and this fun blue fauxhawk. Turned out ADORABLE. And even though it was stupidly high-priced and probably only something we’ll do every few years, he loved it. He got to sit in a plane and what a movie while they cut his hair. GENIUS.

Graduation Day

So…how was YOUR weekend? Any ridiculous blubbering at sentimental events? Any multi-colored hair styles? What about bug vacuums? We had some of those too but I’ll save that for another entry.

  1. I don’t know what it is about the cap and gown, but she looks so grown up there! And I love Wes’s hair. You are such a cool mom!

  2. It sounds silly but at the same time if the kids see their older siblings graduating when they finish school it adds something to it.

    There was talk of brining in a graduation ceremony at my upper school when I was there to make it more important and stuff like that. I wouldn’t have minded but I’d have wanted to be valedictorian hehe

  3. My middle guy is graduating preschool on the 3rd and I’m sure I will cry my eyes out!
    It’s a mom’s prerogative to cry whenever we like! 🙂

  4. Alas, no multi-coloured hairstyles for me 😉 I would’ve cried too – I mean, look how freakin cute she is!

  5. I don’t see how you could NOT cry at her preschool graduation! My son is 14 months old and today is his first day in his next-level-up classroom at daycare, and I cried all weekend about it. How can he be growing up so fast?!

  6. I love that last photo of the three of you!

    Like the commenter above me, I’m sad that BZ is about to move from the infant to the toddler room at daycare, also partly because he’s growing so fast and partly because I really like (and he LOVES) one of the infant room teachers. So it’s not crazy to cry at her graduation. (But it’s also not crazy to make fun of the idea of a preschool graduation.)
