It is different to parent Daegan, rather than Tavis, in so many ways. My drop-off with Tavis was lots of hugs and goodbyes. With Daegan it was excited and a "oh, yeah, Mom, your here" wave as he got on the bus.
The phone calls at night were three sentences, between his "hands" he had to play in cards. It didn't hurt my feelings. The boy is independent and that connection just isn't needed as much. The phone call was more for me than him.
Here is a random photo dump of pictures from Jon's texts, school posts and other parents:
And my pics while waiting on the buses:
