God is so good! Lol. Yesterday I wrote about wishing you could do things, but not doing them. Keeping them in the mind. Well that was part of it anyway.
I went to lunch and shopping with Linda yesterday. While I was gone the school nurse called and said GS had come in there and said his throat hurt.
Get home and daughter and I decide to take him to the doctor for a strep test. We were going to turn around and go right back out (this is also to tell you why I am late in getting to the blogs and emails again - lol).
We always go to the bathroom before we go out.
Daughter went first and after a minute yelled, "Mom did you put plastic in the toilet?"
I said, "Plastic, what do you mean?"
She goes, "Plastic!"
Well that didn't help explain - I just didn't say anymore and went on to get ready to go.
Then she yells, "(Grandson's name) did you put plastic in the toilet?"
At first he didn't say anything, but he quickly admitted to it I have to say.
He had taken saran wrap and put it from one side of the toilet to the other side - then put the toilet seat down.
Kelly had used the bathroom and you can imagine the rest - thank God it was a bit lose and all 'things' went in the toilet and not out. But think about the clean up.
Okay we proceed to the doctor and he got a severe lecture all the way over there - 30+ minutes.
Now this is the clincher - last weekend at his dad's house - his dad told him the practical joke and that it sure would be funny if he did it here. He didn't learn it from school where you would think he would have - he learned it from his father!
What the heck do you think about that? If someone told me to do it - I would laugh (maybe), but I would never do it. Why didn't the grandson know better? (Be kind with me here.)
What kind of man/father tells his son to do that to his mother? Yes they are divorced and it was not a good divorce. But still. He KNEW the grandson would get in trouble here. Grandson KNEW if he did it at his dad's house his dad would "hurt him" - his words. Father sold out his own son - to spite his mother - they have been divorced since 2003.
Sheesh and I'm worried about my grandson doing something like this. I love him to death, but I know he should have known better - he's 11! So why did he do it? Was he trying to win his dad's love (he doesn't think his dad loves him) - or what?
Okay it is a little funny because I do know some of you will think that - after all it was the daughter and not me - but if it was me - I'd be mad too. Psychoanalyze this (gently) because I am at a lost what to think! Believe it or not.
