My daughter’s Moving Up Ceremony was last night – she now moves on to first grade. If you know my daughter you know that she can be quite philosophical for a six year old – always has been. As soon as we arrive she says “this is where the sidewalk ends and the road begins”.
Sometimes the things that come out of her mouth Kill me!
It also wouldn’t surprise anyone that literally 2 minutes before she is supposed to be marched in – she was of course sidetracked running around, fell and hurt her fingers on her left hand. I heard a sound you don’t want to hear. She was screaming, they got ice and I told her if she wanted to go through with her ceremony she could cry later. Phew – she stopped, performed properly and became a wreck right on cue afterwards. She is soooo her mother’s daughter and I can assure you I am soooo my mother’s daughter – I pity the next generation as it seems to get amplified with each.
