So My Son Graduates Kindergarten Today


The New York Yankees game isn’t on for another 12 hours or so and the way the team is playing you may not want to hear any more about than you have to at this point. Instead I’ll use this time to brag a little, show the world how proud of my family I am and leave you with a little bit of personal information from me to start your morning.

My son graduated from Kindergarten today. He is actually graduating right now as this post is going live and I while I wrote this post in advance I still lack the ability to put into words how I feel right now. I want to hug the kid and tell him how very proud I am but at the same time I want to hug his teacher and tell her I’m sorry for all the presumable trouble he caused her this year. I want to hug his mother and show her, because she doubts the way we handle him and certain situations sometimes, that we did an alright job at this whole parenting thing for not knowing a thing before we got into it and most of all I just want to cry.

I may be overreacting a tad, hell I am overreacting a lot actually, but if you haven’t had a child and had that proud moment you probably wouldn’t understand. I know I didn’t 10 years ago. So this post goes out to my little Evan that isn’t so little anymore. Congratulations and happy graduation day little buddy! Thank you for making me proud!

    2. Thanks Ken. And no, not a punk kid. I'm what punk kids grow up to be. Opinionated adults! Just like the rest of you! Lol!
