i mean really.
i was getting emily onto the bus this morning. she walked up the steps(assisted) with the aide, and i have the following conversation with the bus driver...
driver: when you take her in your personal vehicle, does she cry when you have to stop?
me: yes, but its only been recently
driver: do you think you could talk to her?
me: no problem
driver: the other parents are concerned when they're bringing their kids on the bus. so please talk to her.
me: ok, well we are...its just something she started doi--
driver:ok, we have to go....
WTF? i was getting more and more tweaked as i was walking down the driveway. of course we try talking to her. emily doens't speak yet, she can't tell us what's wrong. she likes it when she's moving, so maybe she's annoyed that she's the first to be picked up, and has to wait for 6 other kids to get on the bus(some in wheelchairs)...i'd be annoyed too!!!
she's never been a "chatty" kind of lady...which is fine, but after today, i'm not sure she actually knows how to talk to people! when she started driving emily this year, she said she had been driving for 25 years...today she convinced me that this is her first year with special needs kids. i think the whole line about the other parents being concerned is a crock. they know what having special needs kids is all about. sometimes kids go through phases(special needs or not), they'll get over it when they're good and ready.
everyone thinks that i should call the school and let them know, but i kind of want to see what the driver says this afternoon when i ask her how emily was. ugh. emily being upset at certain things is a struggle, i don't need her to remind me!!!!!!
