Sharon has the day off today, so this morning I told Theo I'd be picking him up from school.
When I arrived, his teacher told me he was excellent today. That he was happy all day because I was picking him up. That sure erased the last trace of curmudgeon in me for having to take the city bus to get him. My little guy still thinks his mom hangs the moon.
Oh, and on the bus when I told him we were going home, Theo asked, "How does the bus know where to go?"
