Graduation Recap

Prior to getting their diploma/certificate, each of the kids in the boys’ class were asked two questions…

Teacher: What do you want to be when you grow up?

Red: I want to be a roofer.

(No idea where this came from. He’s never talked about doing this before. He always says he wants to be a fireman.)

Teacher: What are you going to miss the most about school?

Red: The block area.

Teacher: What do you want to be when you grow up?

Blue: I want to fix lights.

(This is what his dad says he does….electrician = fix lights.)

Teacher: What are you going to miss the most about school?

Blue: Coloring.

The entire time (all :30 seconds) Blue was talking, he was on the verge of tears. He’s super afraid of talking in front of people and gets really shy and awkward. (Sorry, buddy. Totally my fault!)

Later that night, as I was tucking them into bed, I asked, “Blue, why did you almost start crying when you were talking about what you wanted to be?”

Blue: I’m just so proud. I just want to make dad so happy. That’s why I said the things I said.
