SweetCheeks Club-EVERYONE Is Welcome-IF You Follow THE RULES

The purpose for my blog when I started
was to have a history of my grandkids.
The things they say and do.
Today you are privy to a 
"private cohnversahshun"

When you are riding with a child in a car
they will tell you almost anything.
Here is a conversation I had 
with SweetCheeks last week
as I was taking her to dance class.

Here she is in front of her school.
Me:  How was school today?
SC: Good.
Me:  Did anything special happen?
SC:  Yes!  I got two new animals in my club.
Me:  What club?
SC:  The club I started.
Me:  You started a club?
SC:  Yes!  Lulu told me when I started first 

         grade that I should make lots of friends.
        So, I started a club.
Me:  What kind of a club?
SC:  Well, I am the owner and I have pets and I 'dopted a daughter.
Me:  Really?  What kind of pets do you have?
SC:  I have 5 dogs and an envisssable horse.
Me:  You mean pretend dogs?
SC:  Wellllll-kind of.  They are really boys that pretend they are dogs  and at recess I put them in pretend cages in the indoor playroom and then I go around and feed them and water them.
Me:  What do they do?
SC:  They pretend to drink the pretend water and stuff.
Me:  You mean they don't get to talk or anything?
SC:  No!  But if they bark I take them out for a walk on an 'envisssable leash.
Me: (cracking up).  That is funny, SweetCheeks.  What about your adopted daughter?
SC:  Well, I let her have one adopted pet, too. But I am its REAL owner.  But she thinks she owns it.
Me:  What's her name?  
SC:  Leah...but sometimes I call her Melissa. (OMG- Now I AM laughing)

 She proceeds to name all her "pets".

Me:  What about the invisible horse?
SC:  Well, I'm the only one that can see it! 
 (I can hardly contain myself)
Me:  I can't believe that those boys act like dogs and let you own them.
SC:  They HAVE to or they can't belong to the club. Now everybody is starting to join 
        so I gotta write the rules down on a paper.
Me:  Why's that?
SC:  So they know who the owner is.

Well, that makes perfect sense to me!

At least I was smart enough NOT TO ASK if she carried an 'envisssable pooper scooper.  
Imagine THAT scene being played out in the classroom!

Oh sweet cheeks! She's got quite an imagination, just too cute! I'm sure you were close to bursting out laughing! Oh, the things they will say in the car, so true!! Those little car trips are treasures, for sure!

Laura @ Top This Top That said...

Love it!!

J said...

This is ADORABLE! What an imagination! I like how her club is open to everyone, all you have to do is act like a dog and you're in! Much better than the first playground "trauma" I recall from one daughter's first grade. A little friend started a "pink coat club." Karen's coat was lavender, so she wasn't invited. I told her to team up with another friend and start the "purple coat club." Three days later everybody was friends once more and "coat clubs" were never mentioned again!

Linda said...

OMG! Not only is she cute but she has a great imagination....that is important.Sounds like she is definitely a leader. That's one thing I love about being a grandma, you have the time and interest to TALK and LISTEN to your grands. That conversation is a keeper for sure!

Good Morning Diana, Sweet Cheeks had me laughing this morning with her club. Leave it to them with their imagination and you won't have a dull moment. I love her sense of humor which brightens a lot of people's day. I have been a little busy, but hubby now has a new roommate and his room is warmer. They moved him on Friday. Give Sweet Cheeks a hug today for me. I enjoyed the post. Have a wonderful day. Hugs and Prayers from your Missouri Friend.

Good that you can record all of this on your blog! You will be able to blackmail her way into her 30's!!!

lynn said...

Hahaha. Love this story and how true kids will talk in the car. My grandson does his best talking in the car on the way home from school and I make sure I drive slow because I want to hear every word. Your granddaughter is a cutie!

Missy George said...

So funny and told so well by you..She sounds like she has her own little stable...Don't forget to publish your blog..!!

Jill Flory of Sew a Fine Seam said...

hahahaha! I love this! That girl has the most amazing mind! Great gene pool she comes from ;)

Chatty Crone said...

I have to say I understand why the boys listen to her!

Kathleen said...

So cute! Kids say anything. When I was teaching we were having a discussion about fast food. Even 10 years ago I tried to get them to see it wasn't good to have that every night! Anyway, one boy said he didn't like BK. Another said, "Why Not?" He replied that the burgers tasted like cat pee. The class knew I wouldn't appreciate that and held their breath till I responded. I simply asked if he had ever tasted cat pee? End of discussion and back to Math class figuring the difference in eating out and making it at home ! :)

She's already a boss. Imagine what kind of business women she may someday be!

One More Time Events said...

Oh my goodness is this ever so cute!

Kelly said...

I see that she is "in charge" when she's playing! That's how I used to be when I was little. I never wanted to play school and be the student. I had to be the teacher. I see her that way too. Too cute!

My Garden Diaries said...

Now that is an amazing imagination! She should make a book with all of her ideas!!! I used to teach second grade and I always loved the brilliant ideas my kiddos would come up with! She is such a doll friend!! Pure joy!!! All the best this week! Nicole xoxo

Sweet Tea said...

Now that's a girl who likes to be "in charge"! I also come from that rule of thought! ;-)

Sonya@Beyond the Screen Door said...

Oh, my goodness! This is awesome! I guffawed when I read her name is "Leah but I sometimes I call her Melissa"! LOL!
What a gift you have in your grandchildren and what a gift to give them! This wonderful blog. :)

Donna-s Lair said...

Pretty darn bright, ya know!! Wow, she should be an actress and make lots of money then retire and have lots of kids. :)

Jackie said...

OK...I'm cracking up with you, Diana.
Aren't our Grands simply the BEST!!
I love this.
Thank you for the sweet visit to my blog.
It is always wonderful to meet new blogging friends.
Sending you hugs,

I think SweetCheeks has a bright future ahead of her with an imagination like that! I hope she is always able to keep the guys at her beck and call. lol! She is so adorable!

Patty Patterson said...

That is hilarious! And I'm glad they all know who the owner is. It would be chaos if they didn't. SOMEONE has to be the boss!
