Two Knights and an Adventure ~ True Story

Updated on November 12, 2011

Two Knights and an Adventure

I took my seven year old grandson, Logan, to the library this week and we checked out 8 books. We have read six of them so far, and I always begin our story time with the title, including and of equal importance, the author, and the illustrator. Writing a story is no little thing and credit should be given where it is due.

This afternoon, Logan asked me if we could take a walk and I said I thought that was a splendid idea. He, then, very seriously asked me if he could take his sword on our walk and came waltzing out of his room with two plastic swords, one for him and one for me. As we got to the street, he informed me that we were two knights (hey, we had our swords, after all) and we were off on an adventure.

There is a little retention pond across the street from our house that Logan and I have visited a few times but last year a sign was posted in the neighborhood that an alligator was seen in that pond, so we have not ventured there in awhile. Well, today was the day for bravery and adventure, and Logan wanted to check out the pond, so tentatively we headed across the street.

Then, he informed me that he was Knight Logan and I was Knight Gramma...this is cute, hang on...So we discussed what I should call him....and I suggested "Sir Logan". He was good with that. I, then, asked him what we should call me..."Sir Gramma"? No, that would not do....with his most serious, authoritative little voice he proclaimed, "Your name is "Ma'am Gramma", and we are the bravest knights in the land."!
On our excursion, we saw a turtle, two ducks and about 5 ibis at the water's edge, and explored what looked to be a little sand bag wall with a bridge of iron grating, and then happily headed home. Now here is the really cute part... Logan says to me, "Gramma, you should write a story about this adventure and us knights...I'll be the author and you will be the illustrator!" Now seriously, does it get any more precious than this?

      It's a very cute little story. I loved it from the beginning to the end. The way little Logan asks you to be the illustrator and him the writer. Seriously, I would have liked to see how it turned out. Did you ask Logan to write about it before you wrote this hub yourself? Voted up and amazing!! Annemari

      Awe, this is just so sweet, Ma'am Marsha (hi-five to Sir Logan over there =)) I'm smiling and felling warm inside out! In the end, did he write the tale? You can definitely illustrate it and scan the masterpiece and post it as the follow-up for us to see =)

      With this lovely memoir of your beautiful day with your grandson, you reminded me that grandmas are baby sitters who watch the kids instead of the TV. Thanks for sharing this, tnderhrt,

      Ruby, thank you. It is a joy to see you. I hope you are well. My grandson is the Apple of my Pie...and I missed him horribly while I was up in Maryland with my oldest son. Grandchildren are God's reward for surviving children, I truly beleive! Take good care!

      Ercolando, it is interesting you should mention the "credit where it's due" thing...he is a special needs child, yet smart as a whip and is quick to give praise, compliments, and thanks, often to those around him...he truly is the Apple of my Pie...thank you for reading and responding to my little tale here.

      Very cute. Interesting how the impressions we communicate to young children are perceived by them. I would say that credit where its due will be something that he truly learned that day and can't help but wonder where else he might have used it. Good for Ma'am gramma, for being both writer and illustrator here to share her love for her little boy.

      Thanks, Janet! He was dead serious when he said "Ma'am Gramma!" He has been taught well to say Sir and Ma'am and that is the rationale behind my title! He is just too cute! Thanks again!
