Violet graduated from preschool this week.
“Do I need to come?” asked Phil curiously.
“I don’t think we need to make a great big deal out of it,” I mused. “She doesn’t have any idea that daddies go to graduations, so it’s not like she’ll be upset. And you know, if you can take time off, I’d rather we used it next week.” (When Vi is off school, yet I still have to work.)
“Yeah, that’s галилео what I thought.”
The day of graduation секс с собаками смотреть онлайн she’s so excited she wants to leave for school right after breakfast. “We can wear costumes!” she informs me proudly.
“All day? Or just секс с собаками смотреть онлайн for the ceremony?”
“Whichever we want!” she crows, hugging herself with excitement. “I want to wear my blue velvet dress.” This is a long, hot velvet dress. It’s 70 degrees outside and she wants a floor length velvet dress. Great.
“But only for the graduation.”
“I’ll секс с собаками смотреть онлайн keep it in my purse.”
That morning at school is horrendous. The graduates are punchy and the mood spreads. Kids are hitting each other with toys, splashing each other with water, hysterically screaming over tiny issues.
“Too many children,” I moan to one of the teachers. “And they’re all annoying me. Especially mine.” Violet’s hanging on me and complaining a lot. “I don’t like my snack! I don’t like my snack! I don’t like one single thing in my snack, Mom.”
She slams her snack bag down so hard on the table that the container of sunflower seeds секс с собаками смотреть онлайн comes open and scatters seeds секс с собаками смотреть онлайн all over the floor. Seeds I will probably have to sweep секс с собаками смотреть онлайн up later.
I am so over being at school with her. I really am. This co-op thing was beautiful when she was little, but I’m just done. I couldn’t be more sick секс с собаками смотреть онлайн of hearing every single Friday how wonderful смотреть she is when I’m not here, really, this is so surprising seeing her like this. NOT TO ME.
“I’m going to mail you in a box to your grandparents,” I hiss to Violet. “Knock it off, you, or it’s going to be you and me looking at the wall all afternoon.” Great, she has me so rattled I’m making nonsensical секс с собаками смотреть онлайн threats. That didn’t even make any sense. She wails in protest.
“Not a wall! Not a wall!”
The morning wears on painfully and finally it’s time for the ceremony. All the parents and grandparents shove their way onto the little bike deck, and watch секс с собаками смотреть онлайн the kids sing a song about секс с собаками смотреть онлайн pizza, do a circus dance with fabric streamers taped to chopsticks, and then come up one by one to get their “diplomas.”
All around me I hear sniffles ранетки and whimpers from the other parents who are apparently sad. I remember the first day we came here, how terrified I was. Would she fit in? Would секс с собаками смотреть онлайн I? Would people секс с собаками смотреть онлайн think we were weird, that I was a bad mom? I was so anxious that I got to school 25 minutes early. The school director took pity on me and let me sit on the bench at the front office until секс с собаками смотреть онлайн school started, blushing furiously. What a tool.
Now, years later, we are two different people. She has learned to be one kid in a crowd, and I have learned to be an adult ringleader of said crowds of children. Now we’ll move on, and I’ll have to learn секс с собаками смотреть онлайн to be something else. It’s a good секс с собаками смотреть онлайн thing though, I think. We’re секс с собаками смотреть онлайн both ready. I am dry-eyed, watching her hug her classmates excitedly. My baby is so happy. I can’t feel anything but thrilled.
Violet is starting to be really interested in clothing, and not, finally, from a standpoint of everything being loose and shapeless and utterly smooth on the inside. Instead, she says, “I want to be a fashion girl!” So everything on her is carefully selected. The right shoes, the right socks, the right jacket, underpants секс с собаками смотреть онлайн should match the dress if possible. She comes up with some freaky combinations (the orange and pink flowered dress with the green and white striped tights under chromium-yellow socks come to mind, along with her love of wearing thick athletic socks with black Mary Jane dress shoes). On those days, people tend to ask me brightly “Did Violet pick out her outfit herself?”
Other days she puts together really cute ensembles. I snap tenerife pictures on those days. How I’m looking forward to a future where we thrift shop секс с собаками смотреть онлайн together and sew together. I bought a bunch of Project Runway patterns for kids, they have a cool feature where they have mix-and-match bits to put onto a plain bodice, so you can add fabric flowers, or billowy sleeves, or contrasting pockets, or whatever секс с собаками смотреть онлайн moves секс с собаками смотреть онлайн you. I keep showing her the patterns, and I let her play with my scraps bag and cut and tie dolly clothes from the scraps.
Someday soon I’m going to be guiding your little hands on the sewing machine, my baby, and when that day comes, I am going to be one happy mama.
