Ugh....Yesterday's excitement was short lived. This morning Topher didn't want to go to school. He didn't want to get dressed. He said "I want to play!" I told him if you don't go to school you're going to bed! After a little trouble we were outside waiting for the bus, and he was doing fine. So I thought all the trouble was over. Then the bus pulled up and he ran for the door to the house! I picked him up, and quickly grabbed a small army guy for him to take. I thought bringing it might ease the stress. Nope, he just screamed and cried. I carried him to the bus. He wouldn't get on. I carried him on and put him into his seat. I sat him down and said "I'll be right here when you get back!" Then I left.
It all happened so fast. I forgot to say "I love you" or even "good bye"! I felt horrible enough and that just iced the cake. The couple hours till they got home were shear torture for me. I felt like the worlds worst mom! The bus pulled up and the kids came out happy as can be. I gave Topher a big hug and said "See I'm right here waiting for you!"
I asked who had a good day at school today, and they both said "I did!" So apparently he's not traumatized for life! Hopefully it gets better because this is rough, on me!
