He got on his bus and went to school, leaving everyone asleep in the house. For some reason I have been laughing about this all day. This has never happened before.
Our house is usually bustling with lunch making panic and hunting for shoes. But this morning, I was at work, Firstborn was already at school and Holly and Pinkerbelle overslept.
I wonder what this 9 year old was thinking. “The house is quiet, my mom is asleep, my sister is asleep. I guess I will just head off to school.”
I’m proud that he took personal responsibility and got himself ready, made his lunch, wrote a note and got on the bus on time. But the 9 year old boy in him said “Who cares my sister misses the bus.” “Mom’s asleep, whatever, I’ll leave a note.”
And he went.
