An Adventure!

This is Jake, my 9 and 3/4 year old grandson. He and I had quite an adventure yesterday! His mother had an away meet of her Track Team, and Dad was in a meeting, so Buppa (his Grandfather, my DH) was to pick him up at the end of school. A call came for Buppa to tutor, so Mimi (that's me) went to get him. He forgot.....and got on the bus. I panicked when he didn't show up, and went to the office, where they contacted his teacher (who lost his note, and also forgot!). They gave me directions to find the bus, and 20 minutes later, we found each other. PHEW! as we were walking to my car, he started to cry, and as I rushed to comfort him, I tripped over his rolling book tote, and made a perfect 3 point landing (both hands and one knee). Now he really was upset, but I told him I was fine, and we left. I thought to make up for the things that had gone wrong we would get an icecream sundae, but when we got to the DQ, it was mobbed. So....back to my house, where I made Jake a sundae of: butter crunch, choc. sauce, sprinkles, swedish Fish, and caramel. I, on the other hand, had a glass of wine. What an adventure! Today I am sore in places I didn't know I had. I hope to play after my dental appt this AM. Have a great day if this is my only post!!!


  1. Oh WOW - what an adventure! I hope that you heal fast! No fun having a sore body for the weekend. Your grandson is a cutie!

  2. You live such an exciting life! And with such a beautiful boy too!

    Sure hope your aches & pains are minimal.


  3. AWW!! I feel for the both of you!! I know that he will laugh about this later on in life and it maybe hard to see it now, but it was a memory with grandma!! :) I hope you are OK from your fall though!! BIG HUGS TO YOU BOTH!!

  4. You are too funny with your real life stories Anne!! I didn't realize having grandchildren was SO dangerous to your health!!! but with an ending of sundae's and wine it can't be all that bad I guess!!!

  5. throughout the telling of the story I could hear a little your GS had tales to tell when he went home


Thanks for your comments. I read and enjoy them ALL!
