Fuss free...

(he humors me when I ask to take a picture, but not without a little humor)
I felt sad when I quickly snapped this picture of Landon this morning on his "special day". I felt sad at the store when I picked up the cake and the bouquet of balloons. I felt sad that he, my first born, refuses to walk with his class for graduation tonight. Sad that I won't be able to see him in his cap and gown, sad that I can't cheer and yell out his name from the packed stadium. So very, very sad.
But then I called my sister to share my woes and she said that if Landon doesn't care about it then why should I, and to just be grateful that I don't have to sit through a long, boring ceremony all night.
And you know,
I don't feel so sad anymore.
Thanks Larisa for always keeping it real.
And thank you Landon for seriously being the best kid in the world.
I'm proud of you with or without the pomp and circumstance.

Congratulations on his graduation, that's the important part! I know a lot of dads who would be glad to not only skip the graduation but have the kids elope so they don't have to dress up and live through their wedding days either.
