Megan's Preschool Graduation

Maplewood Preschool Graduation
May 14, 2010
Megan was so upset. She wouldn't put on her cap or go up and sing with her class. We tried to get her all excited days before. Having her sing her songs for us. Telling her how great she would do, but starting an hour before she was hysterically crying. (Could have been partly that she fell asleep and had a nap, which she usually doesn't do) I felt like I had to force her to get dressed, do her hair and get her in the car.
Her teachers, Deb and Vikki, knew she was having a hard time and when they got all the other kids positioned on the stage they noticed that Megan was not up there. Deb came and pulled her from me and had her go sit with her. Here Deb is telling her that she will not make her go up there, so they just sit and watch the kids sing. Then Deb tells her that maybe she could go up and get her piece of paper (Diploma) because that isn't scary.
She did it!! She's not wearing her cap, but she is up there participating. We were thrilled.
It's hard to believe our baby is done with Preschool and on to Kindergarten.
Good work Megan!!
