I'm happy that Ethan is riding the bus to school by himself this week.
It was his idea. He's going to be in high school next year. This is good preparation.
I'm worried about him getting off at the wrong stop.
I'm worried about him not having enough money on his card.
I'm worried about him not looking both ways when he crosses the street.
I will miss riding the bus with him every morning, the same way I miss holding his hand.
I will miss listening to him tell me what he dreamed about last night, how he got in trouble yesterday for talking in class, how his classmate Lulu actually likes homework, how there should be a reality show about people being forced to live like cavemen.
I'm happy that he's growing up.
I'm sad that he's growing up.
