When Nate started school in late October, I was curious to know what kind of bus would be coming to pick him up. Would it be a typical yellow school bus? A handicapped-accessable van? I wasn't sure.
(Secretly, I wanted the short bus. Yeah, I know. Lots of parents cringe at the thought, but I wanted my kid to be the reason the short bus came to the neighborhood).
So when a typical school bus like any other showed up, I was a little bit disappointed. Even though all of the kids riding it were going to the same EC class, still....it was so....typcial.
And then yesterday the bus was late. Really late. When it finally showed up, it was Nate's new bus! A short bus! Yeah!!
That's right, people. It's a short bus. It's my kid on that short bus...take a good look. He's awesome, he's a rock star....he's the greatest most wonderful kid in the whole world.
I can't believe I get to be his mom. (yeah for me)
