Commencement Speech - Fun and Games with Jenners

I'm running behind on postings. However, I am doing a little catch up. This is being hosted by Jenners over at "Life With A Little One and More". The game this time, to write a commencement speech.

I've actually given two commencement speeches in my life. One in high school and one in college. I tried so hard to be inspiring in high school but seriously, when you're graduating from high school how closely are you listening to those speeches? Does anyone even remember what the speech was about? Probably not. I did better for college. But what would I have said at kindergarten graduation?

Hello Fellow Graduates and Parents...

First, I'm so nervous I'm trying not to pee my pants.

Okay, don't forget to share but make sure when you share the other person shares back.

Label ALL your things - always.

Don't play with fire - it usually ends badly.

Insurance is a good thing.

Naps are good at all stages of life.

Don't do drugs.

TV and video games in moderation.

Put down the telephone.

Be flexible.

Congratulations and Good Luck!

Be sure to visit Jenners for other speeches and games!

You did a great job! I enjoyed reading your advice to those wide eyed kindergarteners. You're so right about the importance of naps:) I need to put that into my schedule. Hope you are feeling much better! Happy Father's Day to T-Rex Dad!

Great job! Be flexible and take naps. Good advice!

I'm so impressed that you actually gave real commencement speeches! And I love the ideas in this one ... especially about the naps! I think they should be legalized and obligatory for everyone! Thanks so much for playing!!!

You are much braver than I... I have always hated speeches.

I feel the same about being behind on blogging.

I love your advice to kindergarteners. I think us adults could use some of these pointers too - share, firesaftey, napping!
