No Pre-School today GranAnnie

Tracie , my daughter called me this morning .. at 7:15.. I'm still sleeping.. She asks "Mom can you come over and take Ben to school?"...Alarm didn't go off so I don't want to be late for work.." I told her "Sure I would be right over." So I quickly got out the door and drive the 4 miles to her house.Thank goodness. Ben is sitting watching Toy Story with his Buzz Light on his lap and Nibbles his beloved rabbit.. How cute is that...
I give him his clothes to put on ~ far be it that I get to dress him anymore.."I do it myself"....~!~!
Give him his yogurt to eat for breakfast and his vitamin... So while he does that I help get Tracie out the door.. Now it's 7:50 and Ben needs to get to school.. So I tell him PaPa Dee's coming over and we need to get in the car.. He jumps up turns the TV off and sails out of the house... WOW~! that was easy... I grab Nibbles his stuffed bunny that has to go wherever he goes. and his back pack and run to the car to get him seat belted in the car.. Pa Pa Dee Dee comes in the drive and I give him the checkbook.. He is going to a farm sale today. Ben is excited that he gets to see Pa Pa Dee Dee.. Kiss/Hug.
Off we go out the driveway and drive north to Central City.. We get to the school and Ben is NOT wanting to go... Oh my,, what to do.. I see the window open to the toddlers area and I tell Ben lets go say "Good Morning'.. Oh that was a good idea~! Distraction is always good.. He runs over to tell everyone "Good Morning".. and then the teacher says to hurry inside so he won't be late for his class... So off we go inside and into the PreSchool room... Oh No..~! he doesn't want to be here.. He is clinging, he is protesting, he is wanting out the door... ~! I notice that there is no fire extinguisher in the red box.. I tell Ben..."Oh look the fire extinguisher is gone".. Pa Pa Dee Dee, has extinguishers on his tractors ~ so he knows how important they are... I tell Ben,,"You need to go tell Ms. V , (his teacher) that the fire extinguisher is gone..and help her find it.. She is surprised.. So the whole class goes on a hunting for the extinguisher.. in the meantime it's time for me to escape.. I wave to Ms. V and off I go.. I look back through the window and Ben is looking intently for the red fire extinguisher. LOL. Yeah~! I love distractions...
I got out to the car after that whirlwind adventure and sat and took a long sip from my coffee cup.. Put the car in drive and now I'm home and it's so quiet.. I have on my MercyMe Cd and all is well in the land of GranAnnie..
You all have a great Friday~! Ta Ta For Now...~!~!
