It was bound to happen one day - a bad day at school. Z-boy managed to accidently lock himself in the bathroom today. It was a one-seater, so it's not like it had tons of traffic in and out, but he couldn't get himself out of it and was apparently stuck for a while. He yelled and yelled until finally a passing little girl heard him and went for help. He says he was in there "forever!" Z came out of it pretty well though, considering that he hates tile rooms (too echo-y).
My husband met the bus today. It usually shows up about 20 minutes after school lets out, but was a little late today. The reason? Some kid was picking on my son and the bus driver turned around and took that kid back to school. They don't mess around anymore - especially since all those videos of kids getting beaten or raped on busses started showing up on the news. So the kid was taken back and the bus was late. I'm glad the bus driver doesn't stand for that kind of behavior though. While Z is 7 years old, he doesn't really understand that some people will be mean to you for no reason.
I'd sure hate to be that other kid when his parents come for him though.
