Since the start of the school year, I have been shuttling the older kids to school in the AM on my way to work. It has been nice to stick around the house in the morning and see everyone before I leave. On most days, I used to get up and leave for work before the rest of the house was even out of bed.
Earlier this week, Grant decided that he was going to drag his feet and complain about the requirement of his winter coat and hat... We generally go through this same argument, it seems like each morning, with him finally succumbing to the inevitable. However, on this day, I decided I wasn't going to argue with him and just simply leave.
I gave him the benefit of the doubt and about as slowly as I could backed out of the garage and down the driveway and even paused a few moments before hitting the button to close the garage door, but there was no sign of him emerging, so away we went.
As we were pulling away Makayla said something to the effect: "I guess Mom will have to take him today", somewhat nonchalantly. I later found out, that as soon as he saw us driving down the street, he immediately went into a crying fit and was: "Ready to go to school now."
Sorry Grant, Move It or Lost It...
Hopefully, he now knows that I will in fact leave him behind on days that he is dragging his feet.
