That's My Girl!
Half an hour ago I put my little girl on the school bus for the first time. I thought I'd be driving her the whole first year(buses are loud, too much stim), but in a new display of independence, Riley informed me yesterday that she wanted to ride the bus. In fact, she was really put out that I couldn't just make it happen before school. 24 hours later and here she is.
This little girl, who could not walk until she was 18 months old. Could not hold her spoon until well into her third year. Was not potty trained until five. Could not write until six months ago. She is getting on the bus (the gross motor required)! She is coming home with stories, illustrated and neatly written in full sentences by her.
Her teacher told me that by yesterday, (day four) the other kids in her K-1 class were looking to her for answers because they see she is so smart.
The bus she is getting on is a little one. It picks up only the six kids in Riley's class. It is perfect.
She is perfect.
Excuse me, I'm gonna go cry now.
