Better question, why a "graduation" from kindergarten? That's so stupid.

I cried at my twins kindergarten graduation because they are my last 2 babies. One has autism and I was so proud of him.

My kids never had kinder graduations. That said, I can't figure out how or why this affects you.

Oh, STFU. I cry if my kiddo looks at me cross eyed. He didn't graduate from kindergarten, but I do get emotional during milestones. He is the only one I can I have. All my firsts and lasts are it. Seriously, you sound like a prick.

They have emotions or allergies.

I cry anytime my children reach milestones because I'm a human being with feelings. I mean, it's not an all out ugly cry, but I get a tear in my eye. Kindy graduations aren't huge milestones, but they're cute as all get out and it's the cuteness that stirs up emotions. Plus, it's like the official end of the baby fase, and the beginning of being a big kid.

They are sad or happy. They could be like me and cry easily.

Because it's an objective measure that their kids are getting older and are no longer babies? It's bittersweet to watch your child grow up?

I cry at everything, personally. My older son didn't have a "graduation" for kindergarten because he was in Montessori, but I bet I would have if he had!
