Graduation Day

Today is the day. My baby girl is graduating from kindergarten. I remember the day she was born like it was yesterday. I remember thinking, "OMG, this is my daughter. My daughter. I'm a mom. I'm in love." I swear it was yesterday. How is this happening???? Before we know it she going to be way too cool for us.

But today she still loves to snuggle and hug and sit in my lap. I'm going to soak it up as long as I can.

I can't wait to go to her ceremony tonight and watch her sing and dance and walk across the stage in her little white cap and gown. We found the cutest dress for her and a heart locket (that will be a suprise) to give her before her show. Of course we are having mac and cheese for dinner....Syd's favorite. I can't wait to get home and curl her hair (at her request) and dote on her.

I'm so proud of our little girl. Stay tuned for super cute pics! Now, if Layne can just behave during the graduation (crossing fingers and praying).

*****Update******

The graduation was awesome!!!!! Sydney did such an excellent job during her show and all the kids were so great. It really is fun to watch them all grow up and change. These events always remind me of how much I love Syd's school and our community. How did Layne do?? Great...she was actually a little transfixed. I think she enjoyed watching her "ba ba" perform. I know pics are in order but Mere has control of the camera and she took a gazillion pics. So go to her blog and bug her to post them (I want to show them off at work!).

I think it's crazy that she's going to be in 1st grade.
I also think it's crazy that they have graduation with cap and gown :)

Enjoy the mac n cheese. I'm sure it's homemade, whole wheat noodles with organic dairy. Nothin' is too good for those beautiful girls.
Oh and I'm crossing and praying that Layne sits and causes you no problems
