Beep Beep! Bus Adventures
My littlest one is at the age where he’s obsessed with cabs! He loves all taxi drivers and every time we’re in a taxi he asks them a million questions a minute!
What’s your name?
Where is your favorite place in the city?
Were you a neurosurgeon in in your home country?
When I saw how fascinated he was with cabs, I knew I had to let him in on a little secret: busses! I explained to him that busses are like cabs but for many many people and you cannot decide where it lets you off. He was immediately enchanted! So last week I took him out of school early and we went on a bus adventure!
He absolutely loved all the different people and smells on the bus we chose and went a little too crazy pressing all the buttons. A few times the bus driver stopped and no one even had to get off or on!
As we were about to get off I had an absolutely brilliant idea. I asked the bus driver, “Do you think my little one could hop on up in your seat and drive the bus around the block?”
And guess what! He shrugged and said sure! So my tot got right in the driver’s seat and navigated the vehicle down the road while the bus driver just texted behind me! Everyone was screaming and cheering for my little man, and I couldn’t have been more proud. I was also so proud of myself for just asking the driver for what I wanted. And surprise! I got it!
Life has a funny sense of humor that way. Happy humpday!
