“Driving my 10 year old daughter to school we pass a bus stop that has many younger friends she knows from preschool. Sometimes she rolls down the window to offer a greeting. I’m never sure what she’s going to say, and sometimes I cringe. ‘Hello little people!’ was one that I wasn’t sure about. Anyhoo, this morning she begins to roll down the window.
