The perils of staying with your elderly Grandparents. Huge tears began to roll down Adams face and he started to sob because he thought that both Far Guy and I had died simultaniously. Yes siree while lying in bed talking and obviously not hearing him calling for me in the other room, we had expired..both of us at the same time. He opened the door and immediately broke into tears..I said "Come here dude, what is wrong?" He replied "I thought you both died." Some hugs and assurances that it would be highly unlikely that we would both croak at the same time, a little tucking in and a reminder to say his prayers seemed to calm him down enough to finally get him to go to sleep, that and my promises not to leave the room..I had to get permission to go to the bathroom.
Yesterday we had a busy day, with two swimming adventures and a trip to a local tourist trap. Today we bring him back to his parents. During swimming last night he scraped his leg on the diving platform, for a moment I thought he might have been seriously hurt..instead I think he is just lonely and overly sensitive. His parents recently moved to a new house, sometimes a move makes kids more sensitive.
I glued his visions of a fish, a turtle and a vulture together. He showed me how he thought they should look..I thought they turned out quite nicely. He searched underwater for all the rocks for these designs, bringing me a few rocks at a time to save and bring home.
He told us he had no fun whatsoever..
Nope no fun at all..
He was bored to tears with his grandparents. His very old Granparents who could possibly croak at the same time..leaving him all alone with only Chance..who he said barked because there was a bear outside that was going to come in and kill him too..can you say DRAMA.:)
