Just when you think your secrets are safe....

 ....along comes Aidan

As parents, we always try to pretend to our children that we NEVER did much wrong in our own growing up years. At least I did. Any of my youth "activity" was strictly on a need to know basis....and quite frankly, I didn't think my kids needed to know ANYTHING about such "activity".
I'm guessing that my daughter is the same with her two boys...and she has a lot to not tell....I know, I raised her.
She's going to have to watch out for Aidan, at 9 years old, I think he may already have the inside scoop on his mom's history......

I was on my usual travels this morning getting the grandkids to school...

We dropped off Jordan at middle school and as we exited the school, Aidan and I observed some kids hopping over what I'm hoping was their own backyard fence as a shortcut to get to school.

"I would do that if I lived there" I said

"No you wouldn't Grandma...Grandma's don't climb fences" Aidan responded.

"Well, I wouldn't be a Grandma if I was hopping the fence to get to middle school now would I?"

"Oh, yeah, I guess not"      

 There was a short pause and then this observation....

"I bet mom climbed a lot of fences"

.......I'm thinking my daughter better build a higher fence for this one.

I love being a Grandma!!


  1. That's funny! Yep, sounds like she might have quite a challenge raising him. Kids are like sponges. They soak up a lot of information.
