Morgan's Preschool Graduation

It is so hard to believe that Morgan will be entering kindergarden in the fall!  It seems like just yesterday she started walking.
I just can't believe how fast she is growing up and becoming more of a little girl and less like a toddler.  Some days I just want my little one back, but I know she needs to grow and learn and become her own person.  Morgan has taught me so much about being loved and loving others.  She is such a happy girl and too smart for her own good!
Today Morgan had her preschool graduation.  I had high hopes of being able to record it and take some wonderful pictures of her singing and enjoying sharing all the things she learned.  However, that just didn't happen.  Gracie cried the entire duration of the program wanting to be next to Morgan.  Ryan was trying to escape and get to Morgan and whenever I grabbed him, he would just scream.  I started crying when those around me started whispering that they couldn't believe I wasn't taking 'those kids' out.
My entire goal in life is to help all of my children know how much I love them and how important they are.  Morgan is such a special girl!  She has a depth of understanding for things that other 5 year olds can't grasp.  Morgan has sacrificed a lot having to be a big sister to Gracie and I try my best to compensate for that.  Today was Morgan's day and I didn't want to leave her there preforming alone just because Grace was throwing a fit. 
Needless to say I didn't get many pictures, but I was there cheering my girl on and flashing her smiles and thumbs up whenever she needed or wanted them! 

I love you Morgan and am so excited to see you continue to learn and progress in your schooling and hope that I can always be there to cheer you on!

Fifteen years from now you won't even remember those mean spirited parents. You will only remember how you were there on Morgan's special day.
You are a very sweet sensitive Mom. There should be more of you!

Oh Deanna I am so sorry they were being mean! I'm glad you were able to be there and see Morgan graduate! How exciting!

Its surprising that other people, who were also parents of preschoolers, didn't understand that you can't always control how toddlers behave, and that you wouldn't want to miss a special moment in your older daughter's life by removing the younger kids from the room! People should be more tolerant!
