Sweet Cheeks And The Topaz Necklace

My daughter treated all
the girls in the family
to lunch for Lulu's birthday.

SweetCheeks managed to
restructure the seating arrangement
so that she was right next to me.
Oh! Goody! Goody! Gumdrops!

Several years ago I worked for
a family member that owned a
jewelry store.
I now possess some beautiful
pieces of jewelry although I 
seldom wear much of it.

However, I do love my 
Blue Topaz necklace.
I don't know if you can tell
but it has a small crown of diamonds.
(not a great picture-it has a lot of
sparkle to it in real life-more like this:
I have often told SweetCheeks
that it will be hers "someday"
because it is her birthstone.
She has chewed on that for a while.

Sitting at lunch she said
to the other grandmother, Gramma G,
and pointing at my neck.
SCheeks:  THAT necklace is going to be 
MY OWN someday-
When Nana dies- it's mine.

Me: I hope I don't die for a while,
yet, SweetCheeks.

SCbeeks: It won't be long, Nana, cuz
you are REALLY OLD.

Gramma G:  Well, I'm even older than
your Nana.

SCheeks:  Yeah- You're  gonna die first.

Gramma G:  I'll have to think of something
to leave you in my will, too.

SCheeks: (pause)- Wait for it-----
 I like your earrings.

I thought we were all going to wet our
pants laughing.

So, if you see anything you want
that I have-let me know-
otherwise YOU KNOW WHO is going
to claim it.

Kids say the "cutest things"! Our 6 year old looked at H the other day and said "you're going to be dying pretty soon" He said "why?" She said " cause your hair is getting grey" Hugs, Penny

boopnut said...

Jettie said...

Where is the photo of grandma G choking on her food? And we need to see if the earrings match the necklace.

Tete said...

Holy cow! You better start wearing depends around that kid. Hard telling what she will come up with next.
That would be the perfect thing to give her for her wedding day. Or loan it to her then- something borrowed, something blue...

Michele @ The Nest at Finch Rest said...

I wasn't exactly expecting this and just managed to spill my coffee on my desk howling with laughter.

Oh my gosh what a pickle she is.

Out of the mouth of the babes, I swear - you and the other GMa must have just about fell out of your chairs.

Hahaha. Too funny.

Laura said...

oh no!!! thats so funny! love how matter of fact she is about it!!

Pam Kessler said...

Well, you gotta calls dibs if you want something! Would probably be better AFTER someone has passed away, but at least she's thinking ahead.

Ruth Kelly said...

The oldest isn't always the first to die. I do hope that Sweet Cheeks never experiences the loss of a family member due to an unexpected accident or sudden illness. But - we all have to remember that none of use is guaranteed a tomorrow. If it's IMPORTANT - do it NOW!

~Lavender Dreamer~ said...

OH MY! I'm sure she would like my jewelry AND think I am very very old! haha! Enjoy your week my friend!

Anonymous said...

She is too funny! It is sweet that she still doesn't comprehend the loss involved at the moment.
Years ago the family of my sister in law's first husband had all labelled things at their parents house, laying claim to what they wanted in advance!

Beth said...

LOL!!!

The Polka Dot Closet said...

OMG that is hysterical!!! Maybe you should just give it to her now and then she won't have to be on a death watch LOL!

Gina said...

Heehee, I love it! I just love the things that come out of that kid's mouth.

missy said...

Sherry @ Thrift My House said...

Oh my goodness! Too funny! Out of the mouth of babes ... but they can get away with it!

Gayla said...

Oh, Sweet Cheeks... What great taste. Such a sweetheart.

andrea@townandprairie said...

This sounds like a Nancy Drew novel- SweetCheeks and the Topaz Necklace. What a girlie girl!

Once upon a time, my grandmother made the mistake of telling me I would inherit a beautiful ring upon her death, and I said "I can't wait!" It was a horrible mistake. I do have the ring--love it--but I can't wear it because I am a chunky monkey.

Tina@WhatWeKeep said...

She just gets better and better! When my nieces were here, the youngest asked me what was going to happen to all my stuff when I died. The older one yelled "how rude!" but Anni just needed to know she said. Turns out that she wants my bed and all my shoes! Hahaha...what would we do without our little girls?

Angela Ryder said...

Fabulous!! I love that child!!! LOL~~Angela

cestMoi Sandy said...

Little Girls like your SweetCheeks are the best Gifts in the world.

Hugs,

Dixie Delights said...

She is such a hoot! I just love her stories :-)

"Cottage By The Sea" said...

This should be a good way for you to get her to be nice to you in her terrible teens!

Martha's Favorites said...

That is the cutest thing I have ever heard. I love how children just say what they want. Too cute! Stick around a while please! Hugs, Martha

Linda @ Itsy Bits And Pieces said...

Oh my gosh...that girl keeps you laughing! Such a cute story...xo

Red Rose Alley said...

Oh, SweetCheeks is too funny. I can see why she wants that blue Topaz necklace, it's gorgeous! That was sweet that she rearranged the seats to sit by you.

Have a great week, Diana.

Love,

Vee said...

What a beautiful granddaughter. Seems to be a lot of openness to discuss the inevitable in your family. ; D

Dewena Callis said...

Humbling, isn't it? But such a natural attitude and shows the comfort she feels with her grandmothers. I like that.

Cristina Garay said...

:D That's just too funny! Oh boy, what kids say!

Busy Bee Suz said...

Oh my gosh....she is a gem isn't she? Next thing we know, she'll be going through your house putting her name on special items!!! ;)

Bluebell Woods said...

Had to laugh. Kids are so honest. I have all my good stuff to my granddaughters already. Now only buy myself the costume stuff. I had a lot of things from Mum and gave those to my daughter. I have just a few favourite things left and the girls have dibs on them.
