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!

That is adorable. Explains now why everyone stares at me too, LOL NOT!

Tete said...

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!

Susan said...

you have an adorable little granddaughter Diane! She is so cute.

Gina said...

She has hit it right on the head! Absolutely! People are just drawn to her sparkly personality both in & out. There's just not a better answer out there.

Kathy@ Gone North said...

That Sparkle explains it all...
That girl has big wisdom for her age... & May she just continue to shine

Karen said...

I wish every girl sparkled inside and out... Sweetcheeks is right :-)

Jettie said...

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

They stare at me, wondering what color I use on my hair, lol.

Japolina said...

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

Patty Patterson said...

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?

Ann@A Sentimental Life said...

Years from now when she is with her Grandaughter...she will tell tails of her wonderful Wednesdays spent with you!!

Kathy @ Creative Home Expressions said...

Haha! She is too much, Diana! Are you sure people don't stare at you because you are sparkly and shiny on the inside and the outside? : )

Debby said...

Ahhh, and only special people sparkle like that and she is definetly one of those.

Elaine @ Sunny Simple Life said...

That is so cute. I love the things little kids say. They are so charming and sweet.

Betsy@ coastal-colors said...

She is adorable and definitely has her Nana's gift of story telling! Starbucks! I love it! I'm up for adoption. Love Miss Sparkles!

Rebecca said...

Sweet Cheeks is spot-on! Beautiful and shiny and all sparkly. LOVE IT!

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....

:(

Sweet post!

Natalia said...

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!)

What a lovely conversation! Tell Sweet Cheeks to never stop sparkling. In a world filled with grouchy people, those that sparkle and smile always bring joy.

Love,
Patti

Kim @ Cheap Chic Home said...

Oh, Diana, you crack me up! I'd say Sweetcheeks does sparkle and shine--just like her Nana!

ImSoVintage said...

The toilet paper or spinach in my teeth is usually why I get stared at. She is adorable. Of course she gets stared at for being so sparkly.

Sweet cheeks is so smart and she is going to be a charmer all her life.. Starting to feel better than a few days ago...maybe it's all this warm weather and sunshine.

Now if we can all just let our sparkle shine and not be grumpy!
What a lovely world it would be.

Ellie said...

That is the cutest thing I've heard in a long time, and my boys say some darn cute stuff!

SweetCheeks, may you always sparkle on the inside!

Nancy @ Nancy's Daily Dish said...

This brought tears to my eyes! I hope she keeps that thought process her entire life! Sweet Cheeks has a sweet heart and mind!

Donna said...

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
