SweetCheeks At Dance Class

Tuesday night is the night for
Dance Class.
Dance Class is for SweetCheeks
two older sisters...
Lulu & Ria.
This Tuesday night
Lulu had school conferences.
My daughter wondered if I could take
Ria to...yep...
Dance Class.
Of course I could.
Wait..
What?
What's that?
You want me take SweetCheeks too?
Do you remember the last time I took her?
Do you?
Do you remember how bored she was?
She had to sit there and couldn't dance.
She had to sit there in
the dark part of the room and
WATCH.
SweetCheeks is not a good WATCHER.
SweetCheeks is a DOER!
How much is it worth to YOU
if I take HER with ME?
Starbucks for a week?
uh-huh - okay..
Here we are!
SweetCheeks...do you PROMISE to be good?
Yup! I'hm a guud ghirl!

Hmmm...already I see the quirky little glance..

Which usually spells T-R-O-U-B-L-E.

Nana-Dis iss borhhing! Isss it almost ovarh?Nope-Not yet...You'll have to sit a while longer.

Put your feet down, honey.

No, SweetCheeks-You can't stay on the
bench..because the dancers will use it.
You need to get down.
Okaaay,Nana...but isss makin me feeel vury sad!

I'm not scolding you, SweetCheeks..

I'm just telling you not to get on the bench.

a kiss?
Hmmmppfff... I jusss gonna kisss my own selfff

Wait...here is some one's little brother.
He has come to watch his sister dance.
He is bored too.
SweetCheeks asks him..

He looks at me and says..
What's she talking about?
I said..I have NO idea...
He says...I'm going over by my Gramma.
I told him that was probably a good idea.
After he moves by his gramma I look over.
There is SweetCheeks splayed
out like she is too exhausted to move.
Hey! Wherah did hims go?
He went to sit
by his Gramma.
Boys! They are jus carazy..
Aren't they, Nana?
Yep, SweetCheeks...They sure are.
Hey, Nana?
Yes honey?

  1. Oh, I really think you or Starbucks have warped this poor child. LOL
    I really think God knew what he was doing when he gave me boys. I would have no idea on how to deal with all her energy! No wonder you do Starbucks!

  6. I think I had never before seen true pouty faces until we had a girl! She was doing them even when she was a baby! That cracked me up about her meeting the little boy because my son has always just gone along for the ride whenever a girl tells him what to do. It starts early! :-)

  9. So now I know you can be bribed with Starbucks. Always good to know. That Sweet Cheeks, she teaches me something new every time you post. Like, other people's dance recitals are boring and boys are crazy and they never know what you're talking about. I'd be right under that bench with ya Sweet Cheeks.
