School Bus, Take Them Away!

School Bus, Take Them Away!
I set out on a morning run this past week at just the right time to spot the first school bus whizzing by.  Around the corner there was electricity in the air.  The perfectly groomed and starched (from clothes never worn before) kids bounced from leg to leg.  Meanwhile the heli-parents were poised with cameras, video recorders and coffee in hand waiting for the yellow “freedom” bus. 

The kids got on the bus tentatively. The driver, who must be a saint, was excruciatingly patient while pictures were snapped.  No sooner were the doors closed, the parents would practically break out into song.  At one corner a mom looked at me running by, threw her arms in the air and let out a pent-up “whooo hoooo!”  I started laughing and another mom added, “Time to celebrate!”  Parents were down right giddy, and I’m quite sure if it were happy hour, corks would have been popped. 

So here’s to those lucky parents who’s kids have reached school age!  And here’s to a great year of learning (and ah-hem, a little mommy / daddy time).

  • There’s a slight possibility that N*Sync’s “Bye Bye Bye” might have been played at breakfast the first morning of school….
