Driving a Bus

I apologize for the extra long hiatus but I’m back now! 😀 I’ll be posting at least every Tuesday, maybe a little bit more.

I’m now officially driving a school bus, hence the extra long hiatus as I got used to my new routine and everything else I had to manage. My husband started post-secondary the same day I picked up kids in a bus for the first time. Needless to say there’s been a lot of changes in our house in the last little while but we’re both adjusting and starting to get into a routine.

There’s pros and cons to driving a school bus. — I love the kids, I like the routine I’m getting. I like coming home after my morning route at 9am and feeling crazy that I’ve done so much before an hour I would usually sleep in to. I like feeling confident behind the wheel and meeting new people (other drivers, teachers etc).  I like how good the kids (one boy in particular) are with my 1.5 year old son. — I don’t like waking up super early and going to bed early. I don’t like the long waits and how much time my son has to spend in a car just to go get my bus. I don’t like the hassle of getting spare buses if something goes wrong with mine.

All in all though, it’s been a pretty good week.
