I sincerely believe that it is far more beneficial and far less costly to help a child build confidence than it is to fix an adult who has little or none.

We lost our vehicle

on October 1, 2013

landon and avoI’m not kidding, we did actually lose our vehicle, but our 2-year-old grandson found it for us.  Sometimes kids are smarter than we are.  Here’s what happened….

We went to our local Wal-Mart store a couple of days ago to pick up a few items.  When we came outside it was almost dark and we started walking to where we thought we parked.   It can be difficult seeing a vehicle when the light is fading – that is my story and I’m sticking to it.  However, when we got to the spot, our truck wasn’t there.  Well maybe we were wrong, so we went over to the other side of the parking lot to check.  Nope, our truck wasn’t there either.   After walking back and forth a couple of times, we came to the conclusion that someone had stolen our vehicle.

Meanwhile, my husband was holding my grandson who kept saying, ‘Grandpa, truck” and pointing towards a group of parked vehicles.   Our grandson calls all vehicles ‘truck’.  Grandpa finally clued in that our grandson was really pointing to our vehicle.  We hadn’t come in our red truck which we were looking for, but in our black jeep and had passed it a couple of times while wandering around the parking lot.  Good thing my grandson knew where we parked.  We might have been still wandering around the parking lot!!

Kids are awesome! Give them lots of love and they will give you that love you right back!

  1. What a delightful story! Thanks for the good laugh out loud this morning. It reminds me of the time my eldest (25) came with me for some groceries and we were chatting away as I slammed the trunk closed and then gasped: oh no! The keys were in there! Luckily he had his cell in his pocket (or his hand, probably) and he called AMA who said they’d be about half an hour. We stood leaning against the car, talking about irony and life and making the best of situations for about 10 minutes before he said something like ‘Have we even tried the doors?’ Oh my gosh! I had clicked the door-unlock button before the trunk-open button on the fob as we approached, engrossed in our conversation! LOL. We hurriedly called back AMA with some chagrin. Ah yes! Our ‘young ones’ keep helping us out no matter how tall they get.
