So my 5 year old has been complaining about the bus, actually crying some mornings about going to school. He says the bus is hot and long. In my neighborhood its a 40 minute bus ride and the school is only 7 minutes away! I think that its just bad routing, and just don’t get it. I actually watched the bus the other day pick up Aidan and then 10 minutes later drive by to pick up other kids! I am hoping its taking so long because its a new driver and school year, but I feel so bad for my little guy! I am so tempted to drive him, but I know if I do then he will want it everyday and with two other kids at home I don’t want to have to drive him if I don’t have to.
What do you do? As a new mom to a kindergartner taking the school bus, is 40 minutes average? Any tips to ease the bus ride or getting on the bus?!
