Now I know there are many fantastic bus drivers out there *our last one for the previous four years was excellent he was an older Scottish fellow who loved the kids and they loved him, I think he might have been a bit deaf maybe that’s why he was so patient with a bus load of kids* but the one this year *deep breath* not so much.
My daughter came home crying yesterday. When I asked her what was wrong she said the bus driver said that she was going to give her a bus report (oh my!) I asked her why and she said it was because she asked if she could sit with a certain girl on the bus. Figuring there was more to the story I continued to question Eden.
Did you ask 10 times in a row?
Do you ask every time you get on the bus?
Did you freak out when she said no?
….No, no and no.
So I said I would talk to the bus driver in the morning. I did. She said it was annoying to be asked the same question over and over, which I said I can relate to but I don’t feel warrants a bus report. She proceeded to tell me that Eden was no angel. So I stopped her there and asked her how often Eden was asking and she said once weekly!!!
Excuse me? Once weekly. I don’t know about any of you other parents out there but I count it a lucky day when I don’t hear the same question from my kids ten times in a day.
I told the bus driver that I understood it might be frustrating but that it is expected behavior from children under 10, wait until they are teenagers, holy!
So Eden did not get a bus report and I did not get a police report, I kept my calm..
Seriously, my daughters not perfect? The nerve of some people!
All eight are perfect, sweet, innocent (having a hard time keeping a straight face here) angels!
