Oh the joy for that grad! But also a very bittersweet time for the parents. Of course we're full of pride for our child's accomplishments during these twelve years. We hope for bright futures with little hardship, career choices that will make them happy in life; successful. It is their beginning. But there are those secret times, when alone, and no one is listening that we almost wish we could do it all again ... yep, every single day of it.
