(Have you ever wondered why, in our personal vehicles, people are obsessive about safety belts and restraints? And yet in school busses there is absolutely nothing of that kind?)
Part way through the trip there I realized I'd made a grave mistake that morning--Cam didn't take his ADHD pill. I knew because he was constantly hopping up, tapping the kid in front of him, and shouting "dibs" at every car that passed. No amount of verbal coaching tamed his energy or inability to sit still. It reminded me that this was how he used to be 24/7 and how grateful I am for medication.
|How handsome is this little man?|
|Bouncy, bouncy boy who put the armrest up and down for over 60 minutes.|
|Doesn't this make you want to go to Alaska?|
And then I made a silent apology to Cameron's teacher for forgetting Cam's pill, and went to eat lunch in my very quiet house.
(Teachers do not get paid enough, I do know that.)
