I would just like to know where the hell the last five years went. Because today, I put my precious little baby on the big giant school bus. He got on like a champ. He didn’t even break a sweat. And then? Then he went to KINDERGARTEN!!!
Our district is only a measly half day (two hours and forty minutes to be exact. A step down from the full day pre-school last year). Up until this morning, I would have gladly asked the bus to slow to a roll, while I chucked him on. I wasn’t upset. I had brief moments of anxiety, but mostly? I’m selfish and FREEEEEEEEEEEEEDOM (semi-freedom, anyway). I’m so close to being able to just do endless amounts of shopping in my pajamas.
But the minute that kid got on the bus and sat down. The minute I couldn’t see his little blonde head through the window, I may have cried a little bit.
