As I stood patiently awaiting my little girl to burst through the doors when the last school bell let out, the cold air was hitting my face, it was no different from any other day. I chit chatted with the other moms and dads about the weather and the latest happenings of Grade 1 as I scanned the ocean of children for Gabriella.
The only thing different was that I had my eye out for something. Since Gabs brought it to my attention, I thought I'd take a peek. On the other hand, I must have looked like a crazy lady scanning these children.
