What to Do With a Preschooler?

  • So...after conferences this week it dawned on me when I talked to Aunt Terra...Everyone in Mica's preschool is graduating, but him. Terra asked me if they were going to let Mica graduate with them anyhow? I didn't even think to ask about that.
  • I didn't really think about how that will make him feel. The more I think about it, the more I feel for him. It bothers me that it might bother him. Maybe he won't feel anything. He might just understand.
  • It wouldn't be a big deal, if they didn't make it a big deal. They have the kids wear graduation hats, robes, walk down the isle, you know the works. A little crazy for a preschool as far as I'm concerned, they go overboard. But...this is the norm now a days.
  • What do I do?
  • Do I ask if he can wear a hat and robe anyhow? After all...he did complete their two year program. He's not graduating though. That's kind of like giving a kid an award when they didn't earn one. It annoys me that kids get awards now a days for doing nothing at all. Here's your, "I tried award". Then they expect something for nothing all the time.
  • Do I not say anything to the preschool, and just talk to Mica about it? After all the world is never fair, and maybe he just needs to understand that at an early age.
  • Do we just not go to the ceremony? After all we are busy people. I know I'm using an excuse! But...I do want him to be able to see his friends for the last time, and his cousin will be graduating.
  • I wish I would of just had him two or three months earlier, then he could go on to kindergarten like everyone else in his class.
  • It's crazy how something like this can occupy my mind. It's a real problem in my mind, and to someone else it would be no big deal. It is no big deal, but it's a HUGE deal to a little kid to have all their friends get to wear special hat's and robe's, but not him.
