That morning, Jack was walking around the house with his chest puffed up like he just won a mac and cheese eating contest. He wanted to shower, spike his hair, and HAD to wear his purple tie. Jon said he looked like he was in Green Day.
Once the graduation began (which was 40 minutes long and all of the kids were ANGELS), I cried. I cried like I just chopped 35 onions in a row. With a dull knife. My sweet boy...yes it is just pre k, but still. Its a graduation. A next phase of life. The start of elementary school. Its unreal. I feel like I was in elementary yesterday. And that he was born an hour ago. We watched him singing with such confidence and I recorded every song. Oh my love for this boy.
And yes, he is a miniature, male version of me.
