Let’s be clear on something. If you lose my child on the first day of kindergarten – or EVER for that matter – I will lose my mind.
Fortunately, my friend is kinder and gentler than I am.
When she went to pick up her 5 year old from kindergarten today – she waited and waited outside the classroom – until finally being told all of the children were gone. And yet?? Her little one? No where to be found. Turns out she was put on a school bus. To no where.
She was told to ‘hurry home to meet her child’ – but the problem: there are no buses going to her house or even neighborhood. That is WHY this sweet child is NOT riding the bus – because it won’t take them HOME.
After a bunch of frenzied walkie-talkie-ing, the child was brought back to the school, fortunately unfazed. Can’t say the same about mom.
Can you imagine?
Our first day – or first 1/2 day – or really first couple of hours was uneventful. It looked a little like this:
Delaney couldn’t figure out why mommy and daddy came along. Tomorrow will be the true test – drop off and full day.
No school buses involved.
