See, the thing with my sweet, tender-hearted, loving girl is that she gets it. She walks into a room and measures the temperature of the mood. There is no need to explain the importance, or ramifications of an event to her, because she gets it. She understood that last night was her last day of Kindergarten. That she would go to a new school next year. That many of her close friends - friends that she has been with since 8 weeks old - would go to a different school. She understood that Ms. Gina was leaving, that Brother Rudy was leaving. That she was leaving... and really the CEC is all she has ever known. It overwhelmed her, she cried, I cried, mom cried, Nena cried, MayMay cried... it was a lot of crying. Most of it was not pretty! But it was emotional. However, somewhere in all the tears we did find a few smiles and captured some sweet moments.
To my sweet Kindergarten Graduate,
Mama loves you, mama is proud of you, mama thanks God daily that he gave you a tender heart, mama will always do her best to protect that tender heart. I love you so much baby, and I cannot wait to walk through these school years with you. I cannot wait to hear your stories, help with your fears, cheer with your accomplishments, and cry with you when you realize that your world is changing. But realize this too - Mama is here. And as long as God will allow me, I will be here for it all! I love you!
