My Big graduated this past spring and as much as I wanted her to fail all of her classes so she could stay with me longer, I couldn’t be prouder of her! While it sucks to lose your mentor (and in my case a best friend) you have to remember that being big and little doesn’t stop when you leave school. I know my big and I are going to be friends for a long time.
In the moments of your big being inducted as an alum you think that all the good times are over. That couldn’t be farther from the truth. You have a lot to look forward to next semester. For example:
Your Big graduating does kind of seem like the end of the world… but trust me it’s not. You’ll get through this! She’ll always be there for you, graduated or not!
