Mental Note...

I made the call this morning to go ahead and send the Kiddo to school. He ran his little 100 degree temperature off and on all day yesterday (medicated it was lower of course). This morning his nose was still goopy but his temperature was down so I mentally apologized to the universe (hoping that would fix any karma issues I'd be causing) and I got him ready to go.

Which leads me to this very important lesson, and one we learned the hard way:

With regards to the Kiddo, a trip that takes 25 minutes on a bike, does not equal a trip that takes 25 minutes walking...

I honestly thought it would take the same amount of time. After all, he bikes really slowly! I've always felt like I was walking as slow when he was biking, as I was when he was walking with me. But no, that was not the case... it is apparently actually closer to a 45 minute walk, especially if we have Cupcake walking with us.

I glanced at the time when we were 1/3 of the way there and we had ten minutes left. The kiddo ran walked the last two quarters of the distance, and the puppy ran/got carried. Both were exhausted by the time we hit the school. The good news though is the Teacher was only just ushering the kids into the classroom sooooo the Kiddo wasn't technically late, he was just the last one that was on time *chuckle*
