The Preschool Graduation That Wasn’t

And I am so incredibly sad.

Davilyn had her official preschool graduation yesterday… and she missed it.  It was her last one since she is off to kindergarten in September.

And she missed it.

And my heart broke in a million pieces.

Tuesday night she woke with a tummy ache and was up every few hours through the night throwing up.

And I knew there was no way she could go to school in the morning.

I was so looking forward to her singing.  Getting her little diploma one last time.

I might have even shed a tear.

She really wanted to go, exclaiming that she felt so much better and it took all of me to lift her up and tell her it wasn’t such a big deal that she was missing it.  Her health was more important and I would go to the school and get her diploma and graduation hat.  Her spirits lifted and she was fine.  Happy even.

But my heart was aching for The Preschool Graduation That Wasn’t

Those are too cute but there will be more!

And so begin the rites of passage that are more important to us than to them. I love that you put it aside to honor her tummy ache. Don’t get me wrong, I would have had a house party waiting after, but her real accomplishments are known to her and will always be. Lots of nice memories raised by this post. Thank you.
