My grandson, Christian, is always doing something, or saying something that has you wondering what was he thinking.
Take for instance when my dad had to go to Christian’s school to pick him up. It was unusual for my Dad, his Great Grandfather, to pick Christian up from school. But this day I guess my mother just could not do it, she has been picking Christian up since school started.
So just like a dutiful Great Grandfather , my dad, drove over to Christian’s school and waited outside with all the other parents, grandparents, waiting to pick up their 4 year old.
What happened next could never have been predicted.
As the teacher released the children my grandson refused to go to my dad. “What is wrong?” the teacher asked Christian. Don’t you want to go with your grandfather? Christian looks at the teacher and says, ” I don’t want to go with him, I don’t know him.” WHAT!!!
Needless to say this caused great concern to the school administration. They all gathered in the principals office trying to contact my son and/or daughter-in-law to find out why a perfect stranger would be picking up Christian. Or maybe this old guy is a child snatcher…I could picture the teachers with one finger on the phone ready to call 911. My poor dad!
Of course, my son and my daughter-in-law are unreachable. Now the teachers decide to call down his sister, Sophie. Sophie is in the same school. Thank God! Sophie arrives in the office and sees my father and my grandson sitting in the principle office. I am sure she had a look of total confusion. Sophie was asked if she knew the man sitting in the chair and Sophie responded without hesitation, ‘Yes, that is Buzzu.” Viola! Identity confirmed. Oh, Buzzu is what they call my dad.
Now the question is, why did Christian say he did not know his own Great Grandfather? Simple, Christian just did not want to go to my parents house and wait for his mom to pick him up. He really wanted to go home.
In the end Christian went back to my parents home. So his little denial plan failed. I truly felt sorry for my dad but couldn’t help chuckle over it. Yes, Christian did run his grandfather over. I cannot wait to see what he will think of doing next.
