Have you noticed that there’s a graduation for everything now? And every grade? If I remember correctly, I think I had an eighth-grade graduation, and then I graduated from high school (barely).
Nowadays, judging by social media, every single grade has an elaborate ceremony with all kinds of pageantry. What is going on?
I think you know what I’m talking about…let’s get to the jokes!
1. How dumb…wait a second.
Pre-kid me: “Preschool graduation ceremonies are so dumb what are they graduating from- naptime?”
June 28, 2018: “DOWN IN FRONT, IF YOU MAKE ME MISS THIS PANORAMIC SHOT OF MY BABY’S SPECIAL DAY AS A SCHOLAR I WILL KILL YOUR ENTIRE FAMILY.”

2. It’s about time.
Just got invited to my nephew's preschool graduation. I'm actually thrilled he's decided to finally do something positive with his life!

3. Doesn’t bother me at all…
At preschool graduation, the kids announced their heroes.
Most said their mom or dad
My 5-year-old said her pet pig
Not that I'm jealous.

4. A little underdressed.
There are parents at this preschool graduation in formal wear and I just used water from an old sippy cup to get Dorito dust off my jeans.

Nothing says false sense of achievement and unwarranted success like a preschool graduation.

6. You got served.
[at daughter's preschool graduation]
Me: This is a meaningless honor that won't help her in life.
Wife: So it's like your English degree.

7. Just like that.
Preschool graduation: gotta love the way kids fade out when they don't know the words & then shout the ones they do. Like me in synagogue.

8. Didn’t go as planned.
I attended my 5 year old's junior kindergarten graduation today. It was emotional for him (he cried because the staple in his hat fell out).

9. Hope you have deep pockets.
Cried at Son's Kindergarten graduation & the Mom next to me said "Aw, it's hard to watch them grow." Me: "No, I'm sad free daycare is over."

10. I like the last option.
Made it out to nephew's pre-school graduation. Kids' career goals so far: blonde mermaid, gymnast, ballerina, Moana and a … ghost/chef.

11. This is hilarious.
Thanks for posting pictures of your kid's preschool graduation. Impressive that they were able to pass the playing with blocks portion.

12. Ninety minutes?
Preschool graduation! Pro: will be super adorable. Con: somehow scheduled to last 90 MINUTES. Assume each 5-year-old giving a speech.

13. Gonna be intense.
6-year-old: Are you excited about your preschool graduation (which is almost a year away)? You get to sing songs!
4-year-old: I don’t know what I’m going to sing…maybe I’ll do “I walk a lonely road…”
Pre-K graduation 2019 is going to be epic.

14. Wait, they get presents?
I can't believe I live in a world where kindergarten graduation presents are a thing. Wtf? You aren't even literate, kids. Keep working.

15. This tweet sums it up.
"Ugh. 'Kindergarten Graduation' is so stupid. That's not even a real thing."
