Little B had a big day yesterday. He had his moving up ceremony, he is headed to Kindergarten next Fall. While I do think they make a bit much with all the hoopla it was a fun event. Little B sang all the songs, made lots of the hand movements, and even had a speaking part introducing a song all by himself. He walked in with his walker because a friend had his, and did the rest of the ceremony with his crutches. I have to admit that I did cry a few tears. That is after I laughed and laughed at him singing and trying to keep that hat in place. My eldest son could not believe I was crying a bit, it was not because of the day it was because of how far he has come. Truly this boy was born dead, at just 27 weeks gestation, and had every complication you can imagine. So yes, I did get a bit emotional because he is so amazing. He is so darling and I just love him to pieces. All the teachers and therapists at school also got a bit misty eyed, they know how far he has come. This extra year in preschool has been a miracle for him, he is reading, doing simple math, writing his name and his letters, focusing a bit better, socializing more, and getting around on his crutches except for walking long distances which he does with his walker. He is ready now. Watch out Kindergarten, here he comes!
By the way thank you for the warm welcome back. I have enjoyed getting caught up with all of you. Hope you have a great day.
