My diploma came in the mail today!
My 5 year old daughter, Savannah, was with me when I got it.
Me: I got my diploma, Savannah!!
S: What's a diploma?
Me: It's a piece of paper that you get after you have graduated.
S: Well, why are you so happy?
Awww, bless her...it's so hard to explain so I really didn't try, but Happy I am!
I'm still not sure that it's hit me that I am an actual college graduate, but knowing it is another matter and for that second, opening my diploma and reading it, my brain knew what it meant!
