Done With One, 3 More To Go




Excerpts from my "parents response speech"

"...4 years ago, we watched our children, then only 3 years old, enter the school gates of Small World. I'm sure most of you co-parents will agree when I say that on their first day of school, our hearts silently broke..."

"...As parents, I believe we share the same mix of emotions today. We are proud about how far we've come along with raising our pre-schoolers but at the same time we are saddened too for today stands as yet another reminder that our children grow up way too fast..."

"...Congratulations too co- parents. From bottles and diapers to school uniforms and homework. We too graduate to greater parenting challenges..."

"...Teachers, thank you. We slowly learned to entrust our children to you. Thank you for being patient with them, thank you for caring for them, thank you for being a part of their lives..."
