Since the 1st week of school made all my crazy bubble to the surface I decided to let my daughter ride the bus home. She asked me daily if she was riding the bus so I caved. It was slightly self serving since I admit I am not cut out for that carpool life. Like the worrier that I am I penned her bus card securely to her backpack and told her repeatedly in the morning she was riding in the afternoon.
I hope this works out better for me. She's a big girl and can handle a little freedom. Me or Granny will be there to take of off the bus. I can also save about a tank of gas a week. Sitting in the Texas heat I was burning about a 1/4 tank of gas waiting on school to get out on A/C.
I wonder how other moms deal with sending their kids to school for the 1st time.
