Dat bus

We sit beside each other on the bus stop bench. Just waiting. We are always early, so worried am I that we will be late. So we wait.

Is that your sister's bus? I ask him pointing at a car as it drives past us. No! he shrieks as if I have said the funniest thing he has ever heard. Is that your sister's bus? I say about the bike heading down a cross street. No! he yells.

Dat bus? he asks me pointing to a truck coming down the road, a pleased smile on his face. No! I laugh, as if what he has said is the funniest thing I have ever heard.

We sit and wait and pretend to see the girl's bus. Until we actually do see it, and then we stand and wave. Waiting for her just a little bit longer.


  1. D has started to recognize M's bus as we wait. It is so fun to see him get all excited when he sees the yellow bus come around the corner!

  2. I stand in the garage everyday for almost 10 minutes, flipping through flyers and old newspapers, waiting for the bus to come!

  3. I love it when toddlers tell jokes. It's just about the cutest thing EVER.

  4. So cute! Wait until he starts on knock knock jokes... :)
