My daughter’s end of kindergarten celebration was this morning. I knew it was going to be rough, emotionally speaking, because my my son’s pre-K graduation, several years ago, was heavy on the theatrics, like a funeral for royalty or a world renowned pop star.

Rick Ryckeley’s column will return next week.

My best friend and his wife are having a baby this spring. I am excited for them because being a parent has been an amazing and eye-opening experience for me. I am also excited because he now gets to join the club. The club of parents is an unofficial club.
