She paused, and I paused and I could feel my heart pounding. I pulled out my cell phone and started to call the school, when a few seconds later, he walks off the bus.
Feeling very relieved, I asked him if he was OK, and he stood there quiet, saying nothing, so I waited till we got home before I asked him again. I think he was shy to tell me when he noticed the other kids were looking at him when he got off the bus late.
Apparently, he was day dreaming about being a Tyrannosaurus Rex (his favorite dinosaur) and had not realised the bus had arrived at his stop. He said they were at the school library today and he found a reading book about Dinosaurs and couldn't stop thinking about it when he got on the bus.
I was just glad he was on there, or else I would've panicked bigtime. This has never happened before.
