Pre-K Graduation

So, I'm aware that Pre School graduation is no where near the heart wrenching experience I will have on the day he graduates high school, or college, or Lord have mercy the day the he marries a girl.

My stomach hurts just thinking about that. Just today I was telling him how much I love him and that he would always be my favorite little {first born} boy in the whole wide world...then I asked him "will I always be your favorite girl?" And he looked at me with his big toothless smile and said "yes, mom."

I can only pray God comes and takes us before I ever have to question that one.

Seriously, though. Someone? Wasn't I just taking this picture on his first day of pre-school? How did a whole school year already pass?

I can't tell you how much it made my heart smile when I saw him walking down the aisle, with his little graduation hat on.
{I gave him a thumbs up when he glanced over at me, I think I embarrassed him}
Then he got to the front and in typical Asher form {and so "his daddy"} he stuck his hands in his pockets like he was way too cool for school.

He has loved going to pre school and is sad it's over. But I told him, once he starts "real school" next year, that's it, he'll be going to school for the next 12 years.
Oh gosh my stomach is hurting again cause I just envisioned him as a high school senior.
Stop. It.

I am the mother of a kindergartner

That's it...I'm off to go suppress my feelings with some cookie dough ice cream.
