Comprobatio (com-pro-ba’-ti-o): Approving and commending a virtue, especially in the hearers.
Today is a day of cheer and hope for all of you children who’re graduating! It is time for you to be rewarded so your self esteem may blossom, bloom and go to seed, and of course, so our audience members can be here!
On behalf of The Butterflies & Bluebirds Foreschool for Acceptable Toddlers, I say, “There are no winners or losers at B.B.FAT, just doers!”
Accordingly, with a big happy face and a knowing wink, I take great pride in awarding all of you clearly acceptable toddlers with a framed parchment B.B.FAT certificate for being Doo Doo Doers and not gloaty winners or whiny losers. Yes, every single one of you with no exceptions whatsoever will receive this Certificate of Having Done Lots of Things.
Stay seated! We will hand out your certificates shortly! Stay seated please! Please remain seated!
Now, after you’ve gotten your certificate and had your picture taken with your parent, parents, and/or the person driving you home, go and DO something! Maybe toddle around your living room or make a dumpy? Why? Because you’re a Doo-Doo-Doer!
Doo-Doo, Doo-Doo, Doo-Doo. You’re all Doo-Doo-Doers. And that’s very acceptable!
