It's Been A Long Day!! by dmrams

It's Been A Long Day!!

Every day since Miranda started my school a week ago this is what happens about 15 minutes into our 35 minute trip home!! After talking for a few minutes, we turn on the radio to listen to music. Shortly after the first song starts, she is out!!! I know if I wasn't driving I would probably be doing the same thing!! It sure is nice having her at my school and I enjoy visiting with her about her day on the way home..until she falls asleep, that is!! :)
This is so sweet. She looks so innocent and vulnerable. You must feel like a Mother Bear with her cub.

I wanted to take time to thank you ladies for your support an insight that you leave on my pictures. I really means a lot to me to have so many supportive friends here, many that are in education, and who kind of mentor me in a way. On days I post something is bad or wrong I know my little support group of Della, Allison, Denise, Karen, Elizabeth, and Kim...an a few others too will perk me up, commiserate, and/or give me a helpful piece of advice. It is nice though to know that without fail I will wake up to supportive and insightful comments from you ladies and that my mood will be lifted and my mind opened to a different view. It is truly something that I count as a great blessing in my already blessed life. Thank you all!

@sassyinthecity your welcome---many times I have been through what you are going through as far as teaching goes and can relate!! You are doing a great job!! :)

adorable shot!
September 29th, 2010  
How sweet! And it's so nice that you're sitting next to her on this trip home!

Della, that's a great photo, not sure she will think so once she sees it, but as a Parent it is one of those special moments you want to capture. I bet you are thrilled to have her attending your school.

hahaha, sweet!

That is a neat picture, something to show when she starts dating. I am sure you feel much better , her being at your school

@digitalrn ---I actually asked her permission before using it!! :) She didn't mind at all--there is actually another shot where her head is leaning waaay back on the seat and she didnt want me to use that one at all so she was ok with this one!! :) and yes I'm sooo happy she is with me now!

My boys both attended the school I teach at and it really was nice knowing they were nearby so I know what you mean about having Miranda at your school. At this age they want to be all grown up but at times like this you can see they are still your little kids ;-)

aww,wonderful pic of sleeping beauty!

When I was teaching in the Parochial school here in our town, both of my daughters were attending there also. I never got to teach either of them in the class-room though.

hahahahahahahaha - reminds me of when I was in school..... always out on the ride home.... fun shot....
September 29th, 2010  
she doesn't look too comfortable does she. I am envious of those that can just fall asleep in any position and anyplace. Now does she know you posted this. This is such a wonderful memory captured
September 29th, 2010  
@andifree I asked her permission before I posted it--she didnt mind! :)
September 29th, 2010  
it must be universal, my 15 9/12 yr old son does the same thing. I reckon it's total trust, acceptance and love that they do this. enjoy it and thanks Miranda for sharing the special moments with your mum.
September 29th, 2010  
I know that pose.
September 29th, 2010  
Must be working hard at school! Great shot
September 29th, 2010  
Dawww! Cute shot :)
September 29th, 2010  
Ha ha that is so typical! Lovely shot :-)
September 29th, 2010  
O000 she looks so relaxed , must be nice having you to take her home
September 29th, 2010  
Aw, what a tired girl!
September 29th, 2010  
Cute shot of your sleepyhead. Oh, don't we ALL wish someone would just pick us up after work and we could sleep all the way home. Well, actually, I DO see a number of people like this on the train at night (and morning!), but I'm not on it long enough to get a good snooze going.
September 29th, 2010  
Wow! Seriously? I've never known a teenager to do that on the way home from school. I just get chatter all the way home. Of course, mine aren't teenagers yet....
September 29th, 2010  
@clarissajohal-- she's 11 and has always fallen asleep in the car---it's the only time she isn't going and going!!
September 30th, 2010  
Oh, she looks so uncomfortable but youth can bend - I forget that sometimes.
September 30th, 2010  
Poor thing! She looks exhausted!
September 30th, 2010  
Aaaaaaaaaaaaaaw, such a cutie! Hope her iron levels are good?

Lil' Aaron does the same thing on the couch everyday about 30 minutes after I bring him home!!!!!
