Graduation Patty

Isn’t this toddler cute? She’d just helped her parents graduate from college! And she did not get the spanking of her life when…. bored with the endless adults-only congrats and discussion swirling three feet above her after the outdoor stadium ceremony, she’d trekked, alone and unannounced, several miles back to the parked family car, navigating several busy intersections in a city she’d never traveled to before… She was/is one bodacious, self-assured, own-path-finding chick! She didn’t even trip and skin a knee! Not bad for one who genetically toes in, has a mild scoliosis, and bad knees to boot! It’s a big world and she’s ever eager to see and experience it all! No discipline required.
