Part 2 - Public Transit & Teens

Just as I thought... The girls were planning a trip to the movies. I read this Facebook conversation between my daughter and her friend, and had to get in on it! Friend - "So, are we doing anything this weekend?" My Daughter - "Ya, I'll check the movie times and get back to you" Here I go... - "Where are you going?" My Lovely Daughter - "To watch The Roommate"? Me... Again... " The wheels on the bus go round and round..." My not so impressed Daughter - "Oh gosh!" Plans were made to meet at our house on Sunday afternoon. Prior to leaving, I checked the bus schedule. We only had to wait a mere 10 minutes before the bus arrived. waiting-at-the-bus-stop2 Not too bad. So far so good. Once on the bus, I sat away from the girls. I wanted them to feel as if they were doing this alone. I saw them chatting the whole way down. I couldn't really hear what they were saying, but they looked so happy - a giggle here and a chuckle there. I miss those days. I hang out at the mall while they check out the movie. We meet up again at the bus terminal. It's a little different than a bus stop. Here, we have to figure out which bus will take us back home. I showed the girls how to look up the stop number, the bus numbers and where to wait. We boarded the bus with what seemed like a trillion other people. bus-interior1 The bus was jam packed and the girls were a little disappointed they couldn't all sit together, so they did what any teenage girl would do. TEXT... My Daughter "How's it going back there?" Friend "OK, I guess. What do you think of the guy next to me?." My Daughter "Which one?" Friend "The one on the right. You think he's cute?" My Daughter "Ya, kinda. Hee Hee Hee" I couldn't get in on this conversation - I just smiled at the innocence of it. Considering this was our first time, I think it went rather smoothly. The girls seemed to have a good time. Me too. However, they did say they would have been lost without me. Oh well. I guess we'll be doing this a few more times. That's not so bad, is it? Heck, I'm living the teenage life again. This time, however, I'm in no rush to grow up.
