The Day is Coming

Graduation Day is coming up. May 19th, just 10 more days. The cap and gown have been picked up, and the gown is now hanging up in our room in order to keep the wrinkles away. Claire noticed it, of course, and so we had a talk about why Daddy is going to wear a dress.

"Mama, you have a funny lookin' dress."
"It sure is funny looking. But it Daddy's, for graduation day."
"That's Daddy's dress?"
"It's Daddy's graduation gown."
"Mama. Girls have dresses. Boys don't have dresses."
"This is a graduation GOWN. Its something special for Daddy to wear for his graduation."
"That's Daddy's dress?"
"Yes. It is."
