I’m supremely bad at mornings, so when the bus driver arrived fifteen minutes early the other day I was in no way prepared for her. I waved her on, called my MIL who was on vacation and asked her to watch the twins, and pushed Charlie down to school myself.
It was a cold morning, so I had Charlie dressed in his fleece and a hat that looks like a Tiger.
As we wheeled into the building, a mom looked right at me and said, “that’s a great hat.”
In the hallway, teachers exclaimed and complimented Charlie on his fantastic hat. A little girl walked up to Charlie and said, “he looks like a real tiger.” Then she put her hand on Charlie’s shoulder and walked like that the rest of the way to his class.
To say that my heart melted would be an understatement.
