Heard The One About The Bouncing Baby?

As I mentioned in an earlier post, we’re all back to school here in Scotland.

For me that means back to Notre Dame High School For Girls in Glasgow, where I do some part-time teaching in between my writing.

Notre Dame High School

The last two posts have involved bad news about kids, so I’m pleased to pass on a ‘happy ending’ item that some of the girls told me about.

This one sounds incredible!

I don’t know how I missed it in the news, but the girls brought in some newspaper clippings to show me.

It involves a family who were out flying a kite.

They were in a good, windy position - ideal for kite flying - but unfortunately they were also near a cliff, and that’s where the danger happened.

Somehow, everyone forgot to keep any eye on the toddler - they were probably too engrossed in the kite - and, yes, he wandered over to the edge of the cliff .

Unbelievable, we might think, but what parents can honestly say they’ve never been careless with their own children?

Anyway, over the edge he went and bumped his way down a 150ft drop.

When the rescuers arrived, they were amazed.

One of them quipped: “This kid must be made of rubber!”

For there he was, just lying waiting to be rescued. Apart from some minor scratches, he was none the worse for his adventure!
