What to write in a graduation card from parents

  1. Congratulations on your big day! To make it easier for you, we've enclosed a repayment schedule for your room, board, education, and other miscellaneous expenses over the last two decades. Love Mum and Dad
  2. Congratulations! You may be finished with college, but you're not finished being our [ son / daughter ]. We love you.
  3. Graduation is a sure sign that you understand the value of hard work - now apply that understanding and go do something great! We love you very much.
  4. That was fun, wasn't it? Now welcome to the real world. Get a job, pay your own rent, and give us some grandchildren.
  5. We've often told you that you should thank us for helping you through college, but ultimately you earned it. This is your day. Congratulations.
