I didn't think my son's pre-school graduation would make me emotional but I honestly had to hold back the tears. Ridiculous! I felt better when I noticed other moms with glossy eyes. Maybe we were emotional because of how proud we were or maybe we were emotional because this meant the beginning of regular school which really qualifies your baby as a kid and no longer a baby. It's the beginning of the end. A part of me truly wished my five year was five months old again. I knew it was all down hill from here, which can be sad.
