Ingrid made it through the week! Today she ran into school holding hands with her friend Tessa and she came out of the building with a smile on her face wondering what I'd brought her for a snack. She didn't cry last night at all, no tears this morning, she just kept asking me "Are you sure I can make it through school today?" Yep, you got this, kid!
I did end up picking her up from school all but one day this week, it seems to have been very helpful. Which sucks. I really was looking forward to her taking the bus...I know it sounds selfish but my school runs are insane, and will be until both kids are in full days. 7:30am drop off Ingrid. 8:45am drop off Otis. 11:45am pick up Otis. 2:30pm pick up Ingrid. Car car car car car car car. Blah.
I know, I know, it's better than her crying every day. But dang, I know this is going to sound like a walking uphill in the snow barefoot both ways story, but I was walking a half mile to my busstop every day when I was her age. And then I had a 20minute ride to get to school. She has a five second bus ride and gets dropped off three blocks away. But I will do it. FOR HER. Because I'm such a GREAT MOM. And I will complain the whole year, probably, too, ha!
Now we just have to see how she does Monday morning. Cross your fingers.
