William has finished preschool. Drew has finished kindergarten. They both had ceremonies at school the last couple nights. Surprisingly I wasn't emotional. Maybe it's because I was preoccupied a bit with the week's unexpected activities and I'm thinking maybe that's a good thing. I tend to get stupid over milestones, as you know. Anyway, as a celebration for both kids I decided we'd take them to Build-A-Bear. Drew has asked in the past to make a Build-A-Bear and I've always said no. Not because I'm mean and heartless but because a $50 teddy bear that she'll NEVER play with was just out of question. Callmecrazy. I know the process of making the bear is part of the fun so this was something a kept in my back pocket for a special treat. Graduation was the right time to whip this baby out.
