Not Me! Monday. Preschool Graduation!

Welcome to Not Me! Monday! This is where moms just like me gather at MckMama's to confess our Not Me! moments. Take a moment to check it out.

I do not have a preschool graduate everyone!!!!!

Last night I watched as 11 preschoolers danced, sang, and recited bible verses....for 90 minutes. not me. It was a little long, even for this extremely nostalgic mama! I was brought to tears during the slide show when they played a country song...and though I normally loathe country music, the words just did NOT make me start sobbing in the church pew:

I can remember when you fit in the palm of my hand
Felt so good in it, no bigger than a minute
How it amazes me, you're changing with every blink
Faster than a flower blooms they grow up all too soon

So let them be little 'cause they're only that way for a while
Give them hope, give them praise, give them love every day
Let them cry, let them giggle, let them sleep in the middle
Oh just let them be little

I've never felt so much in one little tender touch
I live for those kisses, prayers and your wishes
Now that you're teaching me things only a child can see
Every night while we're on our knees all I ask is please

So innocent, a precious soul, you turn around
It's time to let them go

I have (really) not had the best time hauling Reagan to preschool 3 days a week this year. Especially in the winter when I bundling up 5 little ones, and strapping them into car seats. Now that it's over, I can't believe how fast it's all gone. Reagan has grown up so very much this year.

Congrats my little graduate!

When she actually "graduated" they were introduced and they said what they wanted to be when they grow up. Reagan wants to be a Chef. Her favorite Bible story is David and Goliath, and she loves ponies. Then she received her certificate, and a new Bible....and it was all over.

My first baby, all ready for Kindergarten. NOT ME!



She is too cute! I get to go through the same thing tomorrow night. I am sure there will be tears...especially since she is an only child. Hope you have a wonderful week!


I will be crying hysterically at any and all events like this one.. congrats to your little "grad":)


Congrats to your preschool graduate! I was in the same place this time last year. Now my kindergartener has 3 weeks of school left until he is a first grader! YIKES! That was the grade that I taught for 7 years and could never imagine him being in...I'm definitely going to cry this August :(

Following Him

The country song did not make me smile from ear to ear! Congrats to Reagan!


Awwww, congrats to the big girl!


Thats so sweet. Isn't it amazing how they suddenly become grown up

Oh Boy...Oh Boy...Oh Boy

What a sweet Not Me Monday post! Congrats on (not) having a preschool graduate. And a very cute one at that!


I came across your blog from MckMama's site.

My little one is just finishing up her first year of preschool, and I know I'm going to be a blubbering mess when she "graduates" next year!

(By the way - I LOVE that song!)
