Paper Mom and The Bus Stop

Every morning I put my girls on the bus, I stand there with coffee in hand waving furiously, sending them off with love and good wishes. I am amazed at how they NEVER wave back. They practically hide in the seat, avoiding the window so they don't have to acknowledge my existence.

Yet, my afternoon kindergartner proudly announces the bus is coming, "Kiss me mommy, extra kiss, huggie" He hops on and always glances back at me proudly. I hear the other kids greet him in unison with glee and then the entire bus of sweet kindergartners waves, and occasionally blows kisses to me as the bus pulls out of sight.

The difference a few years can bring...
