Pre-school graduation was Saturday. And what a day it was.
I admit, I was nervous.
But, he put on his cap and gown. He posed for individual and group photos. He marched to the stage perfectly (he looked like a little man). He stood and sang (every word!) and danced -- in perfect rhythm with his classmates. He walked to the podium to get his diploma. He walked back to get his flower and brought it to me, his mommy.
I know all the moms and dads were proud. But, I was superfliciousexbealadocious-ly proud. A year ago, he would not have cooperated. He has grown so much.
He did so much just like everyone else.
Here's what he did like Curt...
Immediately at the end of the first song, on stage, he says, "Mommy, I go pee-pee!" Everyone laughed. The music began for the second song. Immediately, at the end of the second song, he said, "Mommy, I go PEE-PEE!" Even more laughter. I hurried to the front of the stage, he hopped off and off we went. Needless to say, he missed the third song.
However, he went right back to the stage after our bathroom trip and completed the program without a hitch.
And I wasn't embarrassed. It was funny. It was what many people may remember from the program years from now. Hell, I have a DVD ordered to proved it to him when he's 18.
