The Bus …

So, I moved to a new school and that means I can ride the bus.  I thought this would be convenient for me in the mornings so I don’t have to wake up as early just to drop off my siblings off at their schools.  I usually just ride with my mom and my brother and sister in the mornings but that means I have to wake up at 6:00 in the morning which I HATE!!  I am not a morning person; I hate everything about mornings!!  So my plan was to just ride the bus in the mornings and maybe in the afternoons if I am feeling like it.  Well, my mom thinks I should ride it in the mornings and the afternoons but kids usually don’t do that do that at my school.  They don’t ride the bus all the time but it turns out I am.  I’m going to try it out, but if I don’t like it my mom will have to pick me up.  Although she might not agree to that.

My Mom …


My mom is a lot of things but selfish is not one of them.  She provides for the whole family and always puts others needs in front of her own.  I know that is what Moms are supposed to do, but I’ve never seen anyone have her kind of selflessness.  My mom definitely spoils us but she likes to say we are just loved.  Although my mom lets us have just about everything under the sun (within reason) she doesn’t let us run wild and do whatever we want.  We have structure and rules, which is what I want to do with my kids one day, too.  When I grow up and have kids of my own I don’t think I’ll be as patient as she is today.  When I was younger we had a lot of things going on in our life and it was very hard on everyone, especially my mom and I would just like to thank her for staying strong because I could never imagine what she went through.  Thanks, Mom for everything you do for me and being the most selfless and strong person I know.
