Okay! So yesterday we were talking about how grandparents’ life gets prolonged when they babysit their grandchildren and today we have come up with a hilarious story of a Grandpa handling his cranky grandson while shopping for groceries.
If you’ve ever taken a child to a store, you know the situation the grandpa had it in front of him. With so many temptations around, the kids become a minefield of temper tantrums that you have to avoid by keeping calm as you are in public but by making your kids realize that they can’t get every single thing that they see in the store.
So this woman noticed a grandfather expertly handling his grandson’s temper tantrum while shopping. He has utmost patience and compassion of a saint. But when she found out the truth, it was beyond her imagination.
Just read the story to the end and you’ll see for yourself.
“It is pretty obvious to her that he has his hands full with the child screaming for biscuits in the biscuit aisle, sweets in the sweet aisle, and for fruit, cereal and pop in the other aisles.
Patiently, granddad is working his way around, saying in a controlled voice,’Easy, William, we won’t be long. Easy, boy.’
There comes the another wave of outburst and she hears the grandfather calmly say, ‘It’s okay William, just a couple more minutes and we’ll be out of here. Hang in there, boy.’
During checkout, the little terror is throwing items out of the cart and granddad says again, ‘William, William, relax buddy, don’t get upset. We’ll be home in five short minutes; stay cool, William.’
She was truly impressed, and so she went to grandfather where he is loading his groceries as well as the boy into the car.
She said to the elderly gentleman, ‘It’s none of my business, but you were amazing in there. I don’t know how you did it. That whole time, you kept your composure and no matter how loud and disruptive he got, you just calmly kept saying things would be okay. William is very lucky to have you as his grandpa.’
Grandpa said ‘Thanks,’ and further added, ‘but I’m William. The little brat’s name is Kevin.’”
The woman was stunned for a moment and then she started laughing. The way William handled his grandson is commendable nevertheless. We truly applaud William for not losing his head!
