It’s 9 AM. Do you know where your kids are?

20 Jun

This is going to be the first in a series of blog posts where we feature stories from Tim McCormack’s, our company’s founder, previous volleyball complexes. Tim has many great stories and we’re sure you’ll grow to love them as much as we do!

This is today’s story: 

One time, Tim and his family were having a family picnic at a sand volleyball complex. Little two-year old Carrick, Tim’s grandson, was sat down close to one of the tables and told to stay put while the meal was being prepared. As all good, two-year old children do, he promptly proceeded to ignore those instructions and wondered off! Eventually, someone noticed this and started asking “Where is Carrick?” This led to them realizing, Carrick was gone!

Now, this was a particularly large complex, 5 acres to be exact, and there is only one rational, orderly way to react when a two-year old is lost on such a big complex. That’s right, you freak out! “Lock down the complex!” some shouted; others screamed, “Call in the National Guard!” Chicken Little even ran though proclaiming, “The sky is falling!” It was madness!

After many heroic and courageous feats by various members of the McCormack family, they finally found little Carrick. He was playing with some friends at the complex’s playground. They asked him, “Don’t you know how worried we were? We didn’t know where you were!” to which Carrick replied, “But I knew where you were.”

Suffice to say, peace was restored and joy returned to the land. What’s the moral of the story, you ask, as all great stories have morals to be learned. Well, I will tell you. It is this simple, plain truth. Two-year old children know more than you, will be more calm than you, and, when in doubt, always look for your kids at the playground.

If you even remotely liked this, then just wait! Tim has many more, much better stories to tell! We’ll post about one story a week, so stay tuned for next week to get another adventure on “Stories with Tim.”
