Sweet Cheeks Sick? Spoiled But Still Sweet!

I meant to get around to visit
last night but I was so tired
it didn't happen.  
Bear with me-
I'll be around today, I hope!

As you can see this is how our poor little
looked when came to my house 
on Monday.
She was NOT feeling well.
Movies filled a few hours.
She started feeling better on
I coaxed her to eat with her favorite
Octopus On The Rocks.
I used her sweet little pink plate
with a pretty place mat 
 and a ruby-lipped cup of milk.
She only ate about half of that
but cleaned her little demitasse cup of
Girl Scout Thin Mint Cookie Ice Cream.
Now, WHAT kind of NANA gives a sick kid
chocolate ice cream?
ME!  Shhhhhhhhh-

I looked and SweetCheeks poor baby was sick, too.
What do you do when you don't have a bed
for your baby?
SweetCheeks turned her lap trap upside down.
A perfect little bed.
As WE started feeling better we needed a bit of diversion.
Wednesday we played games all day.
I lost every single game-not on purpose.
Bet I could beat her at Scrabble though!;>)

Due to Nana's good care by Wednesday night
SOMEONE felt a whole lot better.

When all else fails you can wash the last
of the sickness away with lots of bubbles.
Ah- Yes-
Home again-Home again-
Jiggety Jog.
I think she is back in school today.

Whatever shall I do with my day today
without her here?
IF I can find this spot-this is where I'll be-
And if YOU find YOURSELF sick
and you need some taking care of-call me----
I'll give you the name of a good doctor
Nana Diana's Day (and Night) Care
 is closed for the week!

your photo name

Bless her heart, she sure looked bad. Hope she gets back in school today. What did she learn about the presidents while you had her? More info to make her teacher look bad again, I hope. LOL
Have a fun day in that tub!

Aww, poor little sweetcheeks! I'm so happy you posted a picture after you got her well! What a great Nana! Hope you have a wonderful day and find time for a long bath!

Japolina said...

Poor thing. She is cute even when she doesn't feel well!

Cindy @ Dwellings-The Heart of Your Home said...

So glad she's feeling better. It was your Octopus On The Rocks with that sweet little rose with vase!

Melanie said...

Glad that Sweet Cheeks is feeling better now! Love that last picture, that would be a great place to spends some time on a day like today!

Barbara @ 21 Rosemary Lane said...

Boopnut said...

Oh, I would love to be pampered at your in home clinic! Sweet Pea's lunch looked so attractive! You are a good Grandma!

Pam Kessler said...

Aw, she looked so sad in that first photo. Not the goofball we're used to :( Glad you fixed her right up though! I bet it was the all the extra loving (or ice cream) that made the difference!

Patty Patterson said...

I'm glad Sweet Cheeks is feeling better. And I hope that you and the other two girls don't catch whatever it is she had. It's no fun being sick! (unless maybe you're at your Nana's and she spoils you)

ℳartina @ Northern Nesting said...

What a good Nana you glad Sweet Cheeks is feeling better! I had to laugh at the ice cream because my mom would do the same thing!!

Junkchiccottage said...

Glad she is feeling better. It was all your tender loving care that got her better.

Laura @ duke manor farm said...

oh no...feel better!

Kathy @ Creative Home Expressions said...

Poor kid. I always hate it when kids don't feel well and it just affects how they normally are. I'm sure for being sick she enjoyed being taken care of by you, Diana.

Tessa~ Here there be musing said...

You "done good" Nana!!!!!!

Everyone who is sick, should have such a loving lady, to take care of them.

Gentle hugs,

~Lavender Dreamer~ said...

Poor baby! She really does look pitiful in some of these pics. But I know she got special care. I'm not sick but I sure wish I had some special treatment right now! lol Take care of yourself, too my friend! Sweet hugs!

Lynne said...

Where did you find that photo of my bathroom? ( dreaming here.)

Nan...I would fake a sick day to stay home with you.

Jacqueline said...

What a doll she is! So sad to see her not smiling, but you brought the smile back! Who wouldn't feel better with such tender loving care!

Sharon @ Elizabeth & Co. said...

Being sick is no fun, but SweetCheeks is sure lucky to have a wonderful Nana to take care of her!

Nellie said...

Bless her heart! It is no fun at all for a little one to feel unwell.:( Time for you to take a long week-end, Diana! xo Nellie

Kelly said...

Gosh with all that TLC, I wouldn't be surprised if she plays sick some times just to get all that care again! You thought of everything. I love how you made her food look so fun!

Leslie Anne Tarabella said...

My youngest son was home sick at the same time. Good think he didn't see the good care you give or else he would have fired me as his nurse!
They are pretty sweet when they are sick. So pitiful and needy. Even a grumpy 14 year old boy!

Beth said...

You are such a very good nana!!
I am glad Sweet Cheeks is all better!

Vee said...

So nice for a little girl to have a Nana to care so well for her. I found myself at the doctor's office Monday afternoon with a sick little one...ear infection. Glad that SweetCheeks is on the mend and back in school. May everyone else remain vertical!

camp and cottage living said...

I'm so glad SweetCheeks is better!
Nursing can wear you out, for sure.
Soak in that tub and rest today-if you can:>)

Anonymous said...

Bless her heart. She is blessed to have you to take care of her. Hopefully, you are feeling better too. Seeing her Cabbage Patch baby reminds me of my RICH, former college chum, Xavier!

Musings from Kim K. said...

You are such a good grandma. I hope you have a restful (germ free) day!

Nonnie said...

Poor baby. But how could anybody stay sick for long with a Nana constantly over her with all that love! I am definitely stealing the octopus on the rocks idea.

Penny @ Penny's Vintage Home said...

Glad to hear that Sweet Cheeks is feeling better! I love your octopus on the rocks....can't wait to see the expression on Kyleigh's face when I fix it for her! Hugs, Penny

Cheryl @ TFD said...

It's good to hear that Sweet Cheeks is feeling good enuf to go back to school. It must have been the chocolate ice cream that did the trick! :)

Debby said...

She is not spoiled she is loved. You are a great grandma taking them when they are sick. I do the same except for belly issues. The last time I said and did that I was in the hospital for 4 days.
She did look pretty down but those bubbles perked her up.
Staying warm????/

cards4ubylouise and other treasures said...

A little TLC never hurt anyone. Almost always makes anyone feel better. I like that jacuzzi type bath with all those candles, yep, would like to find one of those places too!!

Chatty Crone said...


We all had the stomach virus - I was the last one to get it and it was so bad!

Hope sweet pea is feeling better.


Red Rose Alley said...

So glad SweetCheeks is feeling better, Diana. I think she needed some grandma care.....and lots of games and especially her doll. Sometimes that is all the comfort we need.


Gail said...

What a wonderful Nana you are! I so glad she's feeling better. How are you feeling...better I hope. Enjoy your day, Gail

Lucille said...

The Candy Land and Chute and Ladders games bring back such sweet memories. I'm feeling nostalgic at the moment. So glad SweetCheeks is all healed up. Who takes care of Nana Diana when she's sick? Hope you're feeling better!

Connie in Hartwood said...

I was one of those moms (and grandmas) who believed that a sick child (or adult) can and should eat whatever they have a hankering for. One of my kids almost always wanted bacon when she was sick. Not the average food that we are 'supposed' to feed someone who doesn't feel well, but it worked for her.

Glad to hear that she's feeling better. You're a good nurse.

Meredith @ The Laundry Can Wait said...

Octopus on the rocks - I LOVE it! That is the cutest thing I've ever seen. Poor SC looked so very sick. :( I'm glad she's feeling all better. We've been so sick around here, too. We haven't even made it to church this year and it's the 23rd! Hope you're staying well, my friend. XOXO

Lisa @ Texas Decor said...

Bless her little heart! I love what you did with her fun! Those games bring back such good memories for me of when my boys were little. :) So glad she's feeling better.

This N That said...

If she doesn't get better with your wonderful care it's because she just wants more of it !! Glad she's better..She looked pretty miserable in that first picture..

Mary@mydogsmygardenandmary said...

Can could tell that SC didn't feel good at all. She is not spoiled, she is a wonderful child. She wanted her Nana To take care of her. She loves you very much. So glad that she is feeling better and I hope you are too.
Have a wonderful weekend and not to much snow.

Shirley said...

Hi Diana, Sweet cheeks definitely looked like she didn't feel good and grandma comes to rescue. You do feed them whatever they feel like eating to try to make them feel better. You try to keep them entertained and I know with the boys it gets interesting. Why do grandmas lose at playing games with the kids? I know they change the rules to suit them at times. Have a great day. Hugs and Prayers from Your Missouri Friend.

Sew a Fine Seam said...

She's such a sweetie! And so are you for taking such good care of her!

Anonymous said...

You and Sweet Cheeks are quite a pair! She looked so sad and sick! I would feel better too if you powdered and puffed me like that! You're one in a million and so is she! So happy she's better! What a cutie pie!

Gina said...

Poor Sweet Cheeks! I'm glad she's feeling better though. I know you took excellent care of her while she was sick.

Dayle ~ A Collection of Days said...

Awww, sweet baby girl. She's blessed to have such a doting nana.

Donna said...

Sounds like SweetCheeks is feeling much better after all of your tender loving care, Diana! She is a girl after my own heart going for the chocolate ice cream! Hope you get some much needed rest yourself!

Jean | said...

Oh, Diana, every child needs a nana like you! Makes me recall how no one could take care of me quite the way my dear Grandma did!

Amy at Ms. Toody Goo Shoes said...

You are the best Nana ever! Poor Sweet Cheeks looked so sad...glad she is feeling better. Hoping that you have found that spot, and are now taking a break in that fabulous looking tub.

RURAL said...

Poor little thing, when she grows up and gets sick I bet she will remember the great care that you gave her now.

Celestina Marie said...

Hi Diana, you sure took good care of SC. Even her dolly got great care. So glad she is feeling better. Hope you found that spa bath!!
Stay warm, I saw on the news this morning that your area is -27.
And, in sympathy we woke to 19 degrees. Too cold for the Lone Star State!!

Sharon said...

You are such a great Nana...well maybe I should not use "great" we have a few years before we are "great Nana's"!! You are a wonderful, loving's that!

Maureen Wyatt said...

I'm so glad she is feeling better and you can get some rest,too!

Gypsy Heart said...

So happy she's feeling better! You know, when my son & family first moved back here from Houston, Alex was 7 and Abby 5. She would call me when she was sick. :) The first time I told her I was so sorry...did she need anything? She said yes, she needed ice cream ~ Moosetracks. I took it over there & the parents didn't know she had called. Loved it!
