The Bus!

Brenley started pre school this week, and Friday was her first day on the bus. She has really been looking forward to it. On her first day of school Tuesday she threw a serious hissy fit when I picked her up from school and she didn't get to ride the bus with her friends. Then when we got back home, she climbed into the back of the car so I couldn't reach her and told me to "get in your seat and take me back to school!" Do you think she had a good time?;)

( not so patiently waiting for the bus)

I think she may do O.K. Should I be offended that none of my children had a hard time going to school? Or even nursery at 18 months old? From all of my children all I have gotten is a "bye mom!" They have all been excited about new things. Really this works out best for me, but does it mean my kids just love me less than these kids who scream and cry and want their moms to stay with them the whole time?

(yeah!, it's here! )

Maybe they are just overly social creatures. I prefer to think that my kids just have so much trust in me that they know I would never send them somewhere unsafe. Yeah, that's it, right?

3 people know I love comments!:

My kids loved to go on the bus, too. I had to remind myself that we WANT them to be independent! I kinda wished they missed me more, too.

Looks like she had a blast. Be happy that they go so freely. I have had one of each so far and it is heartbreaking to leave a child sobbing. It is definitely personalities.

When my son, Romney, was 4, he badly wanted to go with Kyara to school. He usually waited with her at the bus stop in the morning. One day, he came home sobbing. I asked him what was wrong, and he said he tried to get on the bus, but the bus driver wouldn't let him. I tried to explain to him, and he said, "But, Mom -- Kindergarten would be so happy to see me!"

How wonderful to have kids who are independent and excited about life!
