Was talking to my grandsons on the phone last night around 9 oclock and asked Gage (4) if he would like Nana and Pop-Pop to come get him and his brothers and take them to get a happy meal and go to the park.
His brothers are Blake 5 and Christopher 1.
There was silence on the line for about 15 seconds so I asked if he was still there. This is how the rest of the converstation went.
"Yes Nana, I'm still here."
"Well, would you like Nana and Pop-Pop to take you to McDonalds and to the park?"
(Still nothing...at this point my heart has fallen and my stomach flipped...My God my grandson doesn't want to see me!)
Once more I ask, almost pleading at this point.
"Gage, Do you want to go to the park with Nana?"
"No Nana" he said. That was it! I was welling up for a good cry. I was trying to keep the disapointment out of my voice and not start sobbing on the phone....and then all of a sudden.
"It's dark outside and I'm in my jammas and I gots to go to bed."
Good grief, he thought I meant right then! I was never so relieved!
I thought he didn't want to see me and I am sure he thought Nana had done lost her mind, wantin' to go to the park at night! Crazy old woman!
