Mirror Mirror On The Desk

SweetCheeks
loves to play
PRINCESS.
I know this phase will
soon pass and I am already
mourning the loss.

Have you ever seen
anyone looking this
woe-be-gone
in your life?

I, of course,
immediately assume
something is REALLY wrong....
you know-like a headache,
or upset tummy.

Whatever IS the matter,
SweetCheeks?

I jussht askhed the mirrohr
who's the fhairest one of all
an' now I'hm really sad.
Why?  What did the mirror say?

Nuthing, Nana.
It didn't sahy
NUTHING.
That's the problum!

Uh-huh...never saw that coming,
did you?

You wouldn't believe
what MY MIRROR says
to me...like...
Does your face have wrinkles
or do those wrinkles have a face?
uh-huh
And don't even let me near 
one of those 
Magnifying mirrors.
Oh.My.

what a beautiful child, even when she's sad, if we could only keep them little, I know that would be selfish but oh the precious innocence of them, she's such a sweet heart!

Lorraine said...

I want a mirror like SweetCheeks. One that says nuthing. A mirror that knows that saying, "if you can't say something nice, don't say anything at all." :)

Gina said...

Oh, poor Sweet Cheeks! She looks so heartbroken. What the heck is wrong with that mirror not answering her!!

Hi Diana, Such a sad expression, but yet so cute. Our grandchildren have a way of giving us a different side of them every day with growing up.They are growing up so very fast. I have enjoyed reading your blog today before I go to work. I would sooner stay home. It is 13 degrees. Have a great day Hugs and Prayers from Your Missouri Friend

Diana, SC will be on stage one of these days. xoxo, Susie

Debby said...

Oh no. Makes me sad. She is beautiful even sad. I had a mirror that talked. Wish I knew where it was because I would send it. It was a Disney toy. Give that girl a (((((HUG))))) from me.

Julie Marie at Idyllhours said...

Tell her the mirror was so overwhelmed by her beauty it could not speak... I think she is the fairest of them all, xoxo Julie Marie

Sweet Posy Dreams said...

Too funny. I saw some pictures of myself on Thanksgiving -- I think my mirror would ask if I was taking a trip with those bags!

Joy Tilton said...

Sweetness... had to laugh at the wrinkles with a face, describes how I feel looking in the mirror to a T!

Japolina said...

So cute!

Kelly said...

Awwww.......she will learn one day not to trust those ol mirrors! Ha! Sometimes they're your friend and other times, not so much. LOL

Cristina Garay said...

So cute! You better fix that mirror! :)

Karen Mary Butterfly said...

Lol...oh man. I can't even imagine if the mirror talked to me. No thanks!! I am with you...I never look in those magnifying mirrors they have at the hotels. Scary. Sweet cheeks is adorable!

It is all part about growing up.

Her wee hormones all natural. Wait till she complains about her legs aching. Another hormone bonus.

My doc used to say. It is her hormones all kicking in.

She is a beautiful child Di.

If even on sad days.

She is a beautiful looking child.

Patty Patterson said...

Well, it sounds like little Sweet Cheeks has a mirror with an attitude. That crazy mirror is just too jealous to speak to her. But, we know she is the fairest of them all, now, don't we. Who needs a mirror to tell her that?

Susan said...

I have a long term relationship with the mirror that started at SW's age, but that's another story. She is such a sweetie. Keep her close.

Lucille said...

Oh, my goodness, Diana. (...do those wrinkles have a face?) You crack me up. Nice way to start the day! Thanks for the giggle! As for our SweetCheeks, she can act up a storm, can't she. I guess you're never bored when she's around. She seems to be growing up fast, though. They do!

thistlewoodfarm said...

LOL! What a sweet story! I wish my mirror would keep its mouth quiet :)

blessings,
karianne

Ron said...

Sweet Cheeks is a beautiful young girl. I too wish my mirror would "shut up". It keeps saying, "ugh, go exercise!!!". xo

Jen @ Muddy Boot Dreams said...

Her beauty isn't reflected by a mirror, but by the love in your heart.

True beauty comes from inside, and Diana, you are gorgeous.

Maureen Wyatt said...

You have defective mirrors. Both the one she talked to and your own don't work properly and you need to toss them both!

camp and cottage living said...

How dramatic Sweet Cheeks is! Maybe she needs a new mirror Nanna.
I avoid both mirrors and cameras whenever possible!

Ellie VanCaster said...

Poor sweetcheeks-I think Nana should try to find those mirrors
that say Fairest of them All.
I've always wanted one, too, so I
can pretend I don't look my age-LOL

Nonnie said...

Hahaha! I don't want a talking mirror either. I know what it would say. Our grand kids all love the magnifying mirror!

Maria Elena said...

Oh, the story of my life! LOL She just couldn't be any cuter!!!

Nellie said...

Perhaps SweetCheeks - and the rest of us - need a "Magic Mirror" on our Christmas list.:) xo Nellie

Jann Olson said...

That is the saddest face I ever did see! I think that the mirror was just made speechless by her beauty. I'd hate to hear what my mirror had to say. lol!
Hugs,
Jann

Missy George said...

She doesn't know how lucky she is...

Sarah said...

I think Sweet Cheeks could have a dual career ~ modeling and acting. What an amazing shot.
I don't every ask the mirror questions. In fact I don't like to consult the mirror these days. Best to avoid it!

SavannahGranny said...

I have two things to say!
1. Sweet Cheeks doesn't PLAY princess, she IS Princess.
2. Tell Sweet Cheeks the mirror was so awestruck by her beauty, the mirror was speechless.
That should work!
Love to you and Sweet Cheeks, Ginger

Jettie said...

And don't we wish that mirror could speak to her.

And I wish mine would close it's eyes, it may not say much, but it tells me in other ways that I have
winkles yes I know I left out an R, but I meant to leave it out.

Donna said...

Oh my gosh, the look on SweetCheeks face is just priceless! Sure didn't see that one coming! I know what you mean about magnifying mirrors. Have you ever looked at yourself in a mirror looking downward? It's not a pretty sight! (not my reflection, anyway!!)

Cranberry Morning said...

Oh my goodness, that is the cutest, saddest little face! And you're right. I'm so glad my mirror can't talk! I can hear mine saying, 'Wow, you're really going downhill fast, huh!' LOL

Blessed Serendipity said...

Wouldn't you know it - the mirror MUST be broken because she is really a beauty.

artbywendy said...

So funny! I don't go anywhere near magnifying mirrors EVER! shes cute even when she's sad :)

Red Rose Alley said...

Oh, please tell SweetCheeks she is the fairest of them all. I love how girls imagine and dream and play fairy tale. She has the sweetest face ever.

Sue said...

What a face....I think the billboard fame might turn Sweet Cheeks into an actress...

Little Miss Maggie said...

Maybe the mirror was in such awe of her beauty it was speechless. She's so sweet, and hopefully she will want to play princess for a very long time.

My own mirror can keep its thoughts to itself, but I suspect SweetCheeks' mirror must have been struck dumb, because how could it not say she is the fhairest of them all, especially when she is wearing a dress that pretty.

Annmarie Pipa said...

the mirror is broken...she is the fairest of them all!

Suzanne@thriftstoredecorjunky said...

haha! How funny! She is adorable!

Holly said...

You are so funny! I won't even tell you what mine says. Xo
