So the Girl Graduated last night, obtaining the long awaited and very expensive Degree. She is the first in our family and I am so very proud.
So proud that I can only blame that on the following actions.
Things Mom did at her only child's graduation:
-Blew nose honking like a wild goose call when auditorium was silent
-Promised to be nice around the Fiances Parents
-Screamed dinner and drinks on me money is no object after ceremony
-Made no reservations
-Suggested we sit in bar while waiting for table
-3 Long Island Ice teas while waiting for table
-1 Long Island Ice tea at table ignored appetizers
-Sampling everyone else drink?
-Thought I was quite funny and charming, realizing today I was only drunk with pride and liquer
-At one point said the phrase, why didnt you just buy him condems hell i bought her condems
-Insisted the entire table go to vegas for the wedding and it was all on me!
-Hugged and sobbed over girl numerous times exclaiming I never thought you would do it
-Made up for that awful statement by saying the words she has only heard a few times in her life.(see below)
-Said at some point to her future mother in law, of course its a big diamond she deserves no less.
-Tried to make up for that comment by showing her my ring?
-Passed drivers license around table insisting the horrible picture was a conspiracy, some sicko interoffice dmv lotto.
Dear Daughter: I was wrong, You were right!! (illusive words to be sure and here for all the internet to see)
I love you kid! (something I know she has heard numerous times in her life and will continue to hear.)
