Sweet Cheeks Sparkles And Shines

You've heard of 
Tuesdays With Morey?
Well, how about
Wednesdays With SweetCheeks?

On Wednesday
I picked 
SweetCheeks up after
her pre-school ended
at 11:30 am.

We usually pop by 
Starbucks...
of course we do!

She is always excited to 
see me and knows
that she will spend
the afternoon
at 
Nana's house,
a place containing
fairies and elves
and treats
(and she got her bangs trimmed
today--shhhh..don't tell her Mom)

She had a question for 
me today though.
I thought my answer was
GOOD...
I thought 
HER ANSWER
was amazing.

"Nana", she asked,
Why dhoes efveryone stahre aht me?
I don't think they do, SweetCheeks.
Yehs, they DO, Nana!
Ahdults stahre at me and
kids stahre at me
they all stahre at me.
Do yohu know why, Nana?
Because you are an engaging 
child, SweetCheeks?
NoH! (insert big disgusted sigh).
I'hm NOT engayged.
They stahre at me because
SPARKLE INSIDE
AND
I sparkle outside, too.
They stahre at me because
I am girly and always haffe
bows or flowhers in my haihr
and because I am always
 shiny and smiley!
THASSS WHY 
everybody stares at me.

Well,  I guess she has that
figured out.
Usually when someone is 
staring at me it is because
I have a piece of 
TOILET PAPER
stuck to my shoe!

  2. Well, she does have something there. She does sparkle for sure and she is one of a kind. I am so glad she is not engaged. Not yet anyway.
    From the mouths of babes.
    As long as she is comfortable with it, that's all that counts. Most kids couldn't handle it as well as that. Shoot- most adults either.
    Toilet paper on your shoe? Beats a brown spot on your pants!

    You and your Hero truly engaging as well!

  10. She has the most beautiful eyes, and her personality does sparkle...so she is right.

  11. Sweet cheeks has inspired me to be more sparkly today. I'll let you know how it goes!

  12. If she alredy knew the answer, then why did she ask? I guess it's because she's so girly and sparkley and girly girls love to hear other tell them how girly and sparkly they are. *lol* Or, maybe... she just wanted to make sure YOU noticed. You did notice all of that, didn't you?

    Sorry about the DIG on my blogpost about Starbucks! I actually hate their coffee. :( Sorry! It's too strong for me.

    But then...come to think of it all coffee is too strong for me. When I do make a cuppa for myself my sister always says I'm drinking colored watahhhhh....

  23. Hi :) i was just going through blogs because Im trying to get my online store out here, it is my new online store of high quality replicas. So I thought i could stop by the blogs of people who are into fashion and see if it is any interesting to your needs. It would be cool if you could check it out, it is very small right now, but i am planning on having a bigger online store by the end of the month. Thank you! :) (And maybe this is the kind of fashion that you need to complete your wardrobe!)

  38. Man oh man, Diana,

    You and Sweet Cheeks and me and my little Sweet Heart - two Grandmas and to little mini me's! Shinning from the inside out! I love it! My little one, if I asked her why everyone looked at her, she'd tell me, "Grandma, you know because I have a happy heart, and they know I'm gonna be like you when I grow up!"

    Yeah, I'd open my piggy bank any time for her, and she knows it.

    Blessings to you and the shinning from the inside little girl! What an answer!
    Hugs,
    Donna
