Celebrate!


Son #2’s university graduation is tomorrow — the culmination of years of school and a mother’s nagging. (Nah, he’s always been a good kid – didn’t have to nag too much.)

We’re leaving tonight.

My first big outing since the surgery!

I’m not 100% sure I’m ready for this – physically, mentally and emotionally — but I’ll be god-damned if I miss it!

My boy – cap and gown!

You Too??!!

**stifled scream**

I can't stand this...our babies just keep growing and changing and maturing and getting farther and farther away from the little tykes they used to be.

It's all good, but but but....waaah!

The whole parenting process is bittersweet, right?

(I packed kleenex.)

You packed Kleenex ... but did you pack enough? Congrats.

Kerry said...

A wonderful accomplishment. Hope you both enjoy the day!

Beth said...

PICTURES!!!! I don't want to be the only mother who annoys everyone with pix of their kids! ;)

Congrats to the boy! No more keggers for him. Now it's off to the real world.

I hope his ceremony isn't as hurl-your-self-into-oncoming-traffic dull as mine was. GOSH that was awful.

Coffee Mom said...

Wow how things have changed since I last read you blog, I had a lot of catching up to do.

Congrats to Son #2, that is a huge accomplishment in his and you life.

I am glad to hear your surgery went well, although you are not 100% yet, you will be with time.

Have a Great Time, and take care of yourself.

TO ALL:

Thanks to all for your best wishes! It was a wonderful "outing." My boy looked so good - and I'm so proud.

Congratulations!! Did you have enough kleenex? Did he look simply smashing? Where are the pictures that Beth was screaming for? I'm screaming with her...

Pictures! Pictures! We Want PICTURES!!

Geek Boy's is probably going to be graduating next year, but I seriously doubt he'll do the cap and gown thing for me. He cheated me out of it for high school by not graduating (half a credit shy) and didn't do it when he got his AA from the community college...

Dan said...

Congratulations to him! And to you! For being a wonderful fun in raising to this point!
