This morning was very, very, very wet.
Raining buckets wet.
7:30 Jumped into the car in my PJ's to sit with Jake at the bus stop.
7:40 Ran back home to get Alex all ready to do the same.
8:00 Go to the bus stop and Alex suggests I just drive him right to school.
Not so much.
8:06 Pull up in front of school and Alex jumps out....slips, falls butt first into the small river that is flowing where the curb meets the street.
8:06:10 Tears, lots of tears.
8:07 Get back in car, drive back home.
8:13 Change jeans, Underoos (Iron Man, I believe), socks, new coat, new sneakers.
8:17 Hop back in car.
8:23 Pull up in front of school, again.
8:23:06 Hop out, pick him up and place him on the sidewalk.
(I'm not taking any chances)
8:23:07 A few separation anxiety tears (why I don't like to drive him to school)
8:30 Home, whew!
The next six hours involve cleaning and laundry so I'll spare you the details.
