If you are the momma of a quiet little guy who you are afraid will be nervous to get on the bus for the first day of Kindergarten, here is a bit of advice.
Print a bunch of your favorite family photos.
Punch holes in the corner.
Put them on a key ring.
Attach them to the built-in key strap in your son’s backpack.
Then tell him that once he is on the bus, he can look in his backpack for the first time to see what fun pictures were included…
Next, you will watch him get on the bus – all excited. And as you stand there in complete shock, you will see him wave from his seat… and then open his backpack to see the photos inside.
And then, in that moment, you will feel like a really good momma.
Who would have guessed it was that easy?
(Oh, and he still LOVES the bus and school. Yay! And the Luigi patch? I have etsy.com to thank for that one.)
