Today was Layla's 1st day of Kindergarten. She was sooo excited, she was awake for a couple of hours during the night and was up and shiny and ready to go this morning.....until the doors of the big yellow bus opened and she looked upward into that big "child eating" space and lost it! She turned around for a couple of seconds, cried in her mommy's arms for a couple of seconds, wanted to hug her "JoJo" and then walked up the steps of the big yellow bus. Woosh! She was gone, leaving her Mommy and JoJo in tears. It was sooo painful knowing she was scared and apprehensive. We pulled ourselves together feeling awful. We knew she would be ok but that didn't matter....we were in pain. I headed home.
After a short time, Elizabeth called me to tell me that the bus driver had called her to tell her that Layla was fine and had gotten off the bus with two "friends" (who cares who they were!) and was smiling.
That bus driver doesn't know what a blessing she is!!! She will never know what she did to make us feel sooooo much better. One little phone call................what a huge blessing!
