This morning I watched my little girl climb on the school bus & head off to her first day of Kindergarten. To say she was excited was a huge understatement. I listened as she told Trystan she would have Gym class today, "and there are scooters in there!" she remembered from her quick orientation last week. "and there's a RESTAURANT at school and you can pick what you want!!"
When I saw the bus coming, I stole a quick kiss saying "Give me a kiss now Syd do I don't embarrass you when the bus is here..." and get this - she looked me square in the eye, smiled, and said, "you NEVER embarrass me. Mom."
Aww, my heart melted and then -
"uh, Yeah you do!" and up she climbed onto that big yellow bus without so much as a wave or a glance back.
