The wheels on the bus

This morning, the Door Man is going on a field trip. It is 30 flipping degrees outside, and they are going to a farm/pumpkin patch. 40 miles away. There are perfectly WONDERFUL pumpkin patches in the near vicinity, and I do not understand why they have to take them to this one.

I have had about 3 panic attacks already because (1) the Door Man is prone to car sickness and (2) no one can take as good of care of my child as me. Oh and the bus careening off the road at 75 miles an hour also has etched itself permanently in my brain.

Did I ever mention that I am a control freak?

My mother and sister have suggested that I keep him home. But he is SO looking forward to this, and there comes a point in time when I just have to let the chips fall where they may.

But really ... WHY it has to be THIS farm I just don't know.

So now I need to go be productive, and pretend that I am not bothered by having to send my six year old off on a bus this morning with Drammamine in his tummy, and hope for the best. His teacher better remember to give him his dose on the way home, or there will be a price to pay!

Let it ride sister...he will be just fine. I've seen him in action and I know that he can hold his own :) Seriously though, how about supporting our LOCAL farmers? That makes no sense! Picture day today for us. All about the drama this am.
Can't wait to see you all later!
Happy Friday!

It seems to me you have pretty darn good judgement. (Control freak that you are...)

He'll be fine.

But I know what you mean - all of it.

I completely relate. I hate my "child" (and he's 15) out of my realm of protection. Like I can do a lot to save him. Furthermore, today my PARENTS (and they're 71) are driving hours away to see my brother's family.

The only thing we can do is pray protection and God's angels surrouding them. Which I will do for your son as well.

Thank you, everyone. And thank you Bellezza. I have already had a freak out session in the van after dropping him off. Of course, he is cool as a clam, and he will be. I was kind of hoping that a friend of mine (and of Robin's) would be going, but we both looked at one another and said "are you CRAZY?!"

He'll be fine. Kids LOVE field trips, especially fun ones like that. He'll be so psyched about this field trip he won't get watch. It's fun, you know!

Will they get to pick out their own pumpkins to bring home?

I once volunteered to chaperone a pumpkin patch field trip and got rode the bus with the kids. That cured me of ever wanting to be a bus driver. Advil, take me away. But, I did get the cutest pictures.

Yes, he does get to pick out a pumpkin, so we shall see what that looks like when he gets home.

Good for you for letting him go. As hard as it is we all have to let them grow up a little at a time. I think it is harder on us than them.

Deep breaths...everything will be fine.
