Proud Mommy Moments: Graduations





It's time to share those Proud Mommy Moments and link up with KMama at the Daily Dribbles and EmmyMom

Three graduations in one year!  This is never going to happen again.  We had a Kindergarten grad, an elementary grad and a Middle school grad.  I am not sure when I realized it would be all three of them, but it wasn't soon enough to really plan anything grand.  Instead I barbecued hamburgers and hot dogs and made chess pie.  I bought plastic red plates at the dollar tree.  There is a tradition at EmmyMom's house with a red plate.  If it is your birthday or you have done something good you get the red plate.  Well I only have ONE red plate.  And all three were in the spotlight.  So I bought red plastic plates and grad plates for the dessert.  And hey why not mylar balloons.  Well can you believe they were all out of the graduation and congratulations types?  Sheesh!  I got them more personalized balloons:  Spiderman for Ryan and Smiley's for the girls.

Since I couldn't be in two places at once, I went to Kristin's promotion and got set up.  You could come as early as 9, but the promotion didn't start until 10:30.  I am glad I arrived early.  And I am glad I saved a space for Rich.  He was able to come to both!

It was quite a day and I am proud of all three of them!!  What are your proud Mommy/parent moments?

Yay! Milestones in their lives. And they all looks so cute in those pictures. Which I am sure they will cherish as they get older.
