SweetCheeks Slugs It Out At School

I pick SweetCheeks up after
We have an hour to kill while
waiting for Mom
How was your day, SweetCheeks
Before she can answer
her sister pipes up.
SweetCheeks got in trouble today.
You did?
She gives me the
I Love You, Nana grin and nods.
DID you get in trouble today?
NOH- Noht really, Nana!
Now comes the coy look~
Tell me what happened.
Whew- Must be getting warm in here.
Gotta take off the coat.
So....what happened?
Sometimes it is easier to tell the
story to yourself in the mirror
rather than to face the Nana.
Wellll.....iht's lihke thissss!
I hitt a boy.
What?  You hit a boy?
And THEN he hitted me bachk
and so did his two friends
and I started crying!
OMGosh!  What did your teacher say?
He asked me why I hitted him.
What did YOU say?
I told him I hitted him and 
I said it was because he was
cuz he throwed my ball in the
waste basket.
What did your teacher say?
He just smiled and thurned away.
Then he said I wusn't gonna get in
eny truble.
Then what?
Nothing...but I think those bohys
shoulda got in truble for 
hitting me!

No MORE hitting ANYONE,
SweetCheeks.  That is NOT NICE-
AND hitting someone is  also 
Yes, honey?
Did you see that lady's nose over there?
It's so big I bet she has a hard time driving!

Lord, please keep me from
choking to death in 
your photo name

I just hate rhude and disrepecktful boys! lol! speaking of noses... one day when robert was about 4 or 5 or 6.. I dont remember, I was mad at him and lecturing him about something. He just stood below me looking up at my face while I went on and on about whatever it was, and when I finished he said, "mommy.. when you yell your nose goes in and out!" LOL! he was watching my nostrils flare the whole time and not listening to me at all!
have a great week Diana!

Karen said...

Well, you're not gonna have to worry about THAT one taking care of herself :-)

Sweet Posy Dreams said...

She has spunk, that's for sure.

Busy Bee Suz said...

Oh my gosh...she is so stinking cute and honest!!!!
Good luck!!! LOL

Shirley said...

Good Morning, She doesn't need anyone to fight her battles for sure. I wonder how her teacher kept from laughing. It was amusing and I can remember denting a dinner bucket a long time ago hitting a boy that wouldn't leave me alone. Problem was explaining the dent to mom. She is such a joy and a great way to start my morning off. Hugs and Prayers from Your Missouri Friend.

Angela Santaniello said...

Oh my gosh. I love every single bit of this post! Too cute!


Nancy @ The Headmistress said...

Spunk! What a great kid! I'll bet there's never a dull moment!!! :)

Simply Debbie said...

oh Sweet tell it like it is and every day of your life will bring joy and love to your NaNa.
God knew only you could be blessed to be her NaNa.
It is so much fun living life through Sweet Cheeks.
The inside of the playhouse is gorgeous.

Donna said...

The photo of Sweetcheeks looking in the mirror and explaining her day is priceless! Love it! Glad you can spend some time with the girls, sounds like they all keep you on your toes!

Nellie said...

What an entertainer! She is adorable!

Enjoy your Monday!

xo Nellie

Japolina said...

Oh Dear. Its a good thing that sweetcheeks is so cute!

Patty Patterson said...

Well, I guess that boy will watch who he picks on next time, won't he. Tell SweetCheeks that boys are just like that. They do silly things like throw balls in wastepaper baskets when they're trying to get a girls attention. He probably likes her! Or, at least he probably did. She may have put an end to that! LOL

Anne said...

LOL I just about spit my coffee out!Thank you for always putting a smile on my face!
Have a great day!

Tete said...

LOL- you are so going to snort that starbucks one of these days or is that why that mirror was so dirty? Must have been a really big nose.
Well, it took 3 of them this year. Bet they won't be able to get the best of her in a year or two.

Infuse With Liz said...

Oh boy- she's full of it and keeps life interesting!

Sarah said...

You know I'm smiling with this one. So cute!

Lucille said...

Just so cute and entertaining, that girl! Have you watched that movie yet that I told you about? I know her and her sisters would enjoy it. So would you! I'm thinking of renting it. I would not mind seeing it again. said...

That SweetCheeks brightens every bodies day... except rude and disrespectful boys who throws things that don't belong to them in the trash.

Patti @ Pandoras Box said...

out of the mouths of babes.....cute story! and she is a cutie - how could anyone be mad at her?

Trisha said...

This little girl just keeps everyone in great that you write it all down so it can be remembered someday!


Kelly said...

She's just a mess!!! LOL! At least she opened up and told you what happened. Hopefully, she'll learn her lesson and not hit anyone anymore.

A.kennedy said...

HaHaHa...Have a good day Aunt Diana :) Thanks for the laughs!

Lorraine Finkbeiner said...

OMG....too funny! Remember the old show Kid's Say The Darndest Things? She would be a hit there.....

PURA VIDA said...

On Crooked Creek said...

Too, darn funny, dear friend!!!
That coffee would have probably squirtted right outta' my nose!!!
You are truly blessed!!!
P.S. Just stoppin' by to say thank you for all your sweet comments and visits!!!

Ellie VanCaster said...

Zena Warrior Princess-I think that is Sweet Cheeks
alter ego. It's amazing to me that you get to actually drink AND swallow your Starbucks-LOL

Debby said...

Can you imagine the teacher's face when this all came down. He is probably a softie when it comes to sweet cheeks.

Cranberry Morning said...

Haha. That kid is a scream - I love it!! :-) I'm so glad you're sharing these things with us.

It's Just Dottie said...

Life with little ones is always delightful.

Susan said...

You have to love the reasoning and honesty of little ones! Sweet cheeks has it all going on!

must love junk said...

Oh, that little stinker! She's just too cute (love that last pic of her!) and must be so fun to be around :)

Gina said...

I love it! Lol. I better her teacher turned away to keep from laughing too!

Celestina Marie said...

Oh Diana, Sweet Cheeks is adorable. I just love how she looked in the mirror to tell her story. These are the M&M's (memory makers) of life.
Priceless end to this story too. I laughed right out loud!
XO Celestina Marie

NanaNor's said...

Diana, I think this girl keeps you laughing til you wet your pants 8-)
She is just a hoot! Glad she is your granddaughter though-you have the perfect answers. Hope you have a great afternoon.
Hugs, Noreen

Tina@WhatWeKeep said...

Who is she like in the family? Besides her Nana?
That child is a hoot.

ImSoVintage said...

I would have spit my coffee across the room :)

Jill Flory of Sew a Fine Seam said...

So thankful we have Sweet Cheeks to keep us entertained! Cracking up over here! So fun that you use your blog to document what she says - great cause we get to laugh about it and great cause you can look back on it when she is grown and laugh again!

ℳartina @ Northern Nesting said...

Tammy Chrzan said...

Daniela @Frugal Aint Cheap said...

Maureen said...

Will she be joining Charlie's Angels any time soon? That pic you took of her looking into the mirror is stunning! I'd be framing that one for sure. Well, it would be weird for my to frame a pic of your granddaughter but you should do it.

Jeane M. said...

My little miss is really something, love her quick wit and super adorable. I too do hope you'll never be choked. Sweet child. Got my eye on your next posts.

Castles Crowns and Cottages said...

Oooohhh...I know these scenarios too well; I AM A TEACHER! I have heard it all!

HI DIANA! You must have tons of stories to tell if you spend an hour a day with this little darling!

Thank you so much for visiting. I look forward to a small trip to my home state and to read more so that I can return to posting, refreshed!

Enjoy another day with the grand!! Anita

Sandi~A Cottage Muse said...

Oh that SC...she nose how to keep us laughing!

Missy George said...

Looks so good..Wish I liked cherries...

Meredith @ The Laundry Can Wait said...

So...this is possibly the cutest post of all time. I was so grateful you provided a glimpse of her telling the story in the mirror. I have a 4 year old who talks like that and does those things - so I "get" it. :) My favorite part is the nose comment. LOL!!

By the way, I've read a few of your comments you've posted on the various blogs I follow, and I couldn't take it anymore. I had to come over and find out who the beautiful lady was leaving those sweet words! Well, here I am, happy to have found you.

I'm your newest follower from Oklahoma.


Debbie @ MeandMyDIY said...

Love love love love it. These conversations are absolutely precious. So good that you're recording them. Not to mention sharing them with the rest of us. :)
