The joy that yellow bus brings
I count the days until its arrival
and the first day of school
I happy dance into the house
hours..... glorious hours to myself
no one to scream "MAAA!"
from anywhere in the house
the computer is mine, the phone is mine
I even have total control over the remote
greets me in every room
coffee with the neighbors
lunch with my girlfriends
"Mom's Taxi" is not for hire
No one rummaging through a fully
while mumbling to ones self
"There is nothing to eat"
No one telling me they are bored
having time enough alone
to become bored myself
As much as I love to see that
yellow bus make its way down my street
it is the back of the bus that makes
my heart smile as I wave the children off!
