We don’t do the bus thing in the Bird household. Not that I’m against school buses. It’s just that I’m a little uneasy about them. I used to ride the bus when I was in middle school and high school. So I know what it was like. In elementary school I walked to school. That was in Hawaii and we lived close enough to walk. The thing is the Kaye is the only kindergartener in our neighborhood who would ride the bus. And one of the few girls. There are two girls who rides the bus but they are much older.
Plus I enjoy picking her up and dropping her off at school. It’s time I get to ask her about her day and talk about school and stuff. We have some of our best conversations during that time. I know it’s not going to be like that forever. She’ll probably stop talking to me around middle school. So I’m going to enjoy this for as long as I can.
