Cody had his first day of school on Monday and on Tuesday was the first day for him to ride the bus. Cody was so excited about getting to ride the bus. I walked him to the bus stop and watched as my little guy climbed up those stairs and into the bus. He is growing up so fast!
In the afternoon I had arranged with the Bus Transportation that Cody would ride the bus to the High School so my Aunt could watch him until I get off work. Cody had a tag on his backpack so that everyone should know where he is supposed to go. Well, things didn't go as planned. The panick started to hit when my Aunt sent me a text message asking what route Cody was supposed to be on. I thought hmmm I wonder if there is a problem... Didn't hear anything more so I sent Caelan a text a little bit later... did you guys find Cody? He had just arrived at my Aunts Classroom and said I'll go check. Well, then I get a text that Cody didn't get off the bus at the High School. This is when real panick starts to hit! I started calling the Bus Transportation office... couldn't get anyone... My Aunt was doing the same thing on her side...right around here my Hubby Brian sent me a message he was off from work should he pick up the boys. I said They can't find Cody! He started looking at the apartment. I was just about to call the school when Brian messaged he found Cody. He had gone on the bus to go home not to go to the High School. Whew! Relief set in and I literally started to shake!
Now that it is over... and I have gotten everything straightened out with the school and the Bus Transportation so that Cody will get where he is supposed to be I can breathe. I am so greatful that things worked out the way that they did. Cody rode the bus home and our neighbor who picked up her son realized that Cody's Mom wasn't there she took him to her house and the boys played. Cody didn't even know anything was wrong. I am glad that he wasn't worried and that it worked out ok. It could have been so much worse. That said I feel for any parent that has been through anything like this! I first was just a little panicked and as time went on I became more upset! Thank God Cody had his Guardian Angel watching over him yesterday!
