I am a mother. My daughter is in Kindergarten. Her school day ends at 2:50p.m. I am a teacher. I can officially leave work at 3:15pm. I have made the decision to not send my daughter to my school.
Today on her second day of school I left school at 3p.m.
I was in my car at 3:03 p.m.
I arrived at her school at 3:24pm.
As I was pulling up I saw the Vice Principal. She was lifting my daughter. As I walked up, the Vice Principal pointed to me. Channing came running full steam ahead! She exploded into my arms.
Here are her first words to me...
"Mummy, it took you ages to get here. I was the last one there. All of my friends are gone!'
I should be in the school yard when my daughter walks out of her classroom!
As a working mother I am unable to get to Channing's school to pick her up on time. I am officially the mother whose child is the last to be picked up. The school yard was not empty but clearly she was the last Kindergarten student.
I am devastated. My best was not good enough!
What do I do? Tomorrow I will try to leave a few minutes earlier and defy school policy.
Motherhood has to come before career!
Until I pick up again,
Is there anyone out there looking for a business venture? I think it would be a great idea to have a school pick up bus service that caters to Grade Two and below. A bus service with a friendly staff, booster or toddler seats, snacks, screens for kids to watch movies as the sit in traffic ... you get the picture. I would pay top dollar tonight.

There are bus services but for older kids. I and I am sure other parents of toddlers are in need of another type of bus service.
Think about people. If you know a taxi cab driver who is not satisfied, sell this idea. It is so doable on our little island town.
