We did get up at 6.45am when the alarm went off and even though I felt tired, Maddy jumped out of bed eager to get ready for school. He got himself dressed, washed his face and brushed his teeth, while I made breakfast and his lunch. He didn't want cereal nor toast, just apples and mandarins with a cup of milk. I fixed his hair, took some pictures and then headed out to the bus stop at 7.50am.
There were only 4 other kids waiting for the bus. I think the others were dropped off to school by their parents. I asked Maddy if he wanted me to meet him there when the bus arrived and he shrugged his shoulders and said "If i wanted to." I think that meant "No Mum, I'll be OK." He wouldn't give me a hug nor a kiss, so I waved him goodbye and off the bus went.
It's now 1.48pm and I'm wondering how his day is going. I hope he tells me about it when he gets home as I remember this time last year, all he said to me was "I can't remember."
