Daycare No More

Today is my last day as a daycare customer, provided that my views on having a third child don’t change radically one day. I’ve enjoyed the fine service of the Igelboda daycare centre for six or seven years straight, but come autumn, Juniorette will become a 0th grade schoolgirl. She’s not yet six years old but already an avid reader. And she’s an experienced public speaker after over a year as a daycare representative on the school’s environmental board. Spatially speaking, the change will be negligible as her new classroom is in another building on the same school grounds.

    Congratulations! Are you going to hold a little graduation ceremony, complete with that little, flat hat with the tassle? Crazy as it sounds, I know some kids who had such a ceremony and their mamas loved it.

    Thanks! Though I think the nearest place where people wear mortarboards at graduation ceremonies is, like, in Scotland somewhere?

    The Stockholm graduation tradition is more like getting on the open trailer of a truck with all your classmates and driving all around the center of the city drunkenly dancing to a giant sound system thats stuck onto the same trailer.
    Then again its mainly a high school tradition (Ive not seen too many Dagis classes doing this!).
