For 2 years now, Brooklyn has been wanting to ride the school bus. The bus stop is literally in front of our house and all last year she would run to the window and watch the kids get on the bus. All summer long she kept asking me, "Mommy, when do I get to ride the bus?" I was hesitant to let her. Growing up in Southern California, there was no bus to school. You either walked, road your bike or your mom took you. That was it. Brian on the other hand grew up riding the bus to school in Indiana, so for him it was no big deal to let her ride the bus. Mama, on the other hand, had a rough time letting her go.
