You're Either On The Bus or You're Off The Bus.....
My son has a security blanket that he loves to drag around and sniff. He calls it noo noo. And in an unfortunate event recently, on the way home from the babysitter's, we accidentally left noo noo on the bus. Of course I panicked but noo noo never turned up in the lost and found (what a surprise, that tattered thing?) But it actually turned out okay- I replaced it with a new one (stupid me but that is a different story...) and we talk about the old one occasionally. For example, the other day he told me that our cat smelled like noo noo on the bus. But then yesterday my poor son couldn't find his favorite Thomas train and he was growing increasingly frantic as we looked for it. Finally he grabbed my hand and said "Where is he? Did we throw him out? Is he in the garbage?" and then after a short pause his eyes widened, his voice got a little more quiet and he said, "Is he....on the bus?" It broke my heart a little but still I had to laugh to myself and say, "No,Thomas the Tank Engine is most definitely not on the bus! I think I can say for certain Thomas is off the bus!"
