“A portrait of my child, once a week, every week, in 2016.”
One major advantage of not driving is that we have to get the bus way more than we otherwise would. And Arthur loves it!
He had been fast asleep not long before this photo was taken, curled up on my lap on the top deck of another bus, when the driver asked us all to change to the one behind. Cue major grumps for a few minutes, until all was forgotten when he spotted a Star Wars game machine in the arcades.
I like that it’s not easy to get places – that we have to slow down and remember that the journey is just as important as the destination. Still, the inevitability of learning to drive is creeping up on me with increased urgency as Arthur gets older.
So I’m going to savour moments like this while I can.
