Paprika's class went to the "Big" Aquarium today for their class field trip. I nearly didn't let her go because the bus did not have seat belts! Everyone assured me that buses without seatbelts are safer than riding in regular cars. Say what?! I wasn't buying that - so I looked it up, and it turns out that on surface roads when buses are travelling slowly, they are safer than riding in a car.
But on a freeway? The 405?! The deadliest freeway in Los Angeles?!
All bets are off.
So, I wasn't going to let her go. But then she REALLY wanted to go. So, I ended up saying okay, reluctantly.
Because you know she'd NEVER been to this Aquarium before (only a bajillion times!)
Sometimes it's hard to know when to let go and when to hold on tight.
She ended up having a great time at the Field Trip and this mama's heart sighed a great big breath of relief when she came back fine. All's well that ends well! Phew!
