She is taking the bus, she didn't want to take it today, her first day, she wanted me to drive her but I was worried that if she didn't go on the bus on her first day that she might lose her privilege or something silly so I delivered her to the bus stop at 6.10am for a bus that was slated to show up bewteen 6.18 and 6.38 am. yawn. It showed at 6.24 and she arrived at school very eaarly so I am hoping it will come a little later once the kinks are worked out. Rosie comes with us as I cannot just leave her home alone.
We came home and had breakfast and then got Rosie all ready for school. She suddenly became very worried at the fact that for the first time she would be attending school alone. She never spent any time with her sister at school but she gleaned great comfort knowing she was there. All her old anxieties bubbled to the surface and the tears flowed. She was convinced she would need her and nothing I could say or do would change her mind. Thankfully once we finally got her into her classroom seeing all her friends calmed her fears and she found her courage.
