The little kiddos love riding the bus so remember to pat yourself on the back for taking this giant step. Elias looks happy, proud of himself and he should be.


Congrats Christy. That's a big step.


I hope you tell that distant judgy voice to shut up. It's rarely easy to give our children what makes them happiest. You did a good thing mama.


Hooray for the bigga bigga bus!


He does LOOOVE it--even if he can't see out the window:) So I'm working on silencing that inner judge who never accepts anything as the right step. Giant steps and all.


frequent reader, first-time commenter here. Elias is so sweet and i'm glad he's enjoying the bus! It looks like he left his hat behind on the steps though...hope you got it back, because that is one awesome hat.


Thanks Stacy, his hat was actually attached to his backpack, which we carry for him, but it does look like it might have been left behind:)


I nominated you for the "thinking blogger" award:)


The two adults helping him in that last photo look so proud. :)


Thank you Mel!!!!!


Can I swoop him up in that lost photo???? He's one cute kid. Too precious. I'm proud of you for letting him go. What a brave mama you are...


I meant to comment on this yesterday morning, sorry it's late! I just wanted to say that part about seeing the tip of his hat through the window REALLY got me. I so admire you for letting him go, for letting him do this. I think that is so brave and more importantly RIGHT for you to do that. I mean, the far easier thing is to keep our kids in a bubble. Christy, you are raising your child to be strong, to be resiliant, to be independent, abilities or disabilities, it doesn't matter--you are a Momma that is raising a wonderful human being. I am taking notes! I know I have to keep my over protective nature in check and you are inspiring me and teaching me how to do just that. Thank you!!!!

That's amazing.
