Big A is at that age where he is losing his innonence.
He seems to be impacted more and more by his peers.
However, he IS holding on to a few of this Mommy's apron strings (is that the right saying?).
He is not a big fan of riding the bus to school. I am okay with this.
I am not a big fan of the bus either, because, well, kids will be kids. Unsupervised and free to run/talk amock - the kids test the limits. I am very happy to make the drive and give him one final kiss before he goes into school.
This morning, Big A said he wanted to ride on the Blue Bus not the 'Cuss Bus'.
Yes, his idea, the 'Cuss Bus' ....pretty cute! I love that he knows the bus is not the best enivironment and that he is choosing his Mom.
As if that was not enough to warm my heart today.
On a whim, I decided to feed Alexa her cereal this morning. The thought being that this may help build trust between Alexa and I.
She liked it, and I liked the forced eye contact with Alexa (yet, another thing with which she struggles).
After a few bights, Big A notices what is going on, and jumps in to encourage his sister.
He says: 'great eye contact, Alexa'.
Oh, how this boy melts my heart!
