SWEET CHEEKS CHRISTMAS WISH LIST

Is it too early for a 
Christmas Wish List?
This is too good to keep to myself.

My daughter called spur-of-the-moment
yesterday to see if I could 
pick the girls up from school,
feed them and make sure they did their homework.

No problem.
It is always fun to have them here.

SweetCheeks LOVES SCHOOL!
Can you tell?
Homework is finished.
Dinner is done.
What next?
Why!  We must listen to the 
CHRISTMAS LIST.
Of course we must!

This is something I 
HAVE TO SHARE!
Ready?

I listed these in the exact order
she listed them in.

1- A writer's kit (hmmm...paper and pencil?)
2-  A math book (seriously?)
3.  Tshirt with a DOG on it (as close to a pet as she'll get-Mom & Dad both have allergies)
4.  A SPY KIT
5.  Science goggles
6.  A Taylor Swift CD with a BOOM BOX 
(have you seen any boom boxes lately-do they even make them anymore..and WHERE did she see one?) 
7- This might be my favorite!  
Instruction book for the Hello Kitty clock
I got last year from Santa and can't figure out how it works.

And-there were two additions...
FAKE CRUTCHES
(which her sister Ria also wants-WHAT is wrong with these kids?)
and
A FAKE EYEBALL

Seriously....
What 7 year old do you know that wants a
WRITER'S KIT and a MATH BOOK?

I was laughing so hard I could hardly write this down.
and she wanted to know...
WHAT'S SO FUNNY?

I gave her the standard Nana answer...
"Nothing"....

There you have it!
Can't wait to hear what YOUR KIDS want!

ps.  And just so you know- she was 
DEAD SERIOUS about this list!
THAT'S what makes it so funny to me!

ps-I had sporadic internet last night
so if I didn't visit you it is not because
I forgot!

Too funny!

Linda said...

I went back to read your entire post, since I thought this was a joke. No jokes, just funny requests! Not even sure where you could find some of these items. Halloween store? Aren't those closed already? Your grands are as "interesting" as you are, Diana. Hugs, Linda@Wetcreek Blog

Bethany Carson said...

Very sweet photo! She sounds like a very studious girl! Nice list!

Jane@Bluebird1959 said...

Oh too funny! ! She definitely has eclectic taste!! The crutches...when my daughter was her age she wanted a broken arm so she could have a cast. :) Kids! Thanks for a Thursday smile, Jane

I think its a wonderful list, it says so much about her. She is curious, studious, has a great sense of humor and is not greedy, what a good girl.

Chatty Crone said...

They are a hoot - they are so cute!!!!!!!!!!!!! And no it is not too early!

Jettie said...

OK a fake eye and crutches I can understand, she's going to put on a show.

ℳartina @ Northern Nesting said...

Too cute!! Eyeball and crutches....hmmm I think she gets her wit from her nana lol!! Loved the last request!!

At Rivercrest Cottage said...

Seems the grand-apple didn't fall far from the eclectic grand-tree. She sure hit on a variety of areas, but really...a math book? I'm impressed.

Nellie said...

Great list, Diana! The fake crutches and eyeball probably come from some kind of Halloween "fallout." Instruction books seem to be a thing of the past. Everything seems to be designed for finding instructions online. Enjoy your Thursday! xo Nellie

Stephanie said...

Oh my, her list is too cute! I remember when I was a kid and I thought crutches were so "cool." Enjoy your Thursday!

Susie said...

Diana, I loved the writing kit , math book ideas. LOL But hey what about the fake crutches and eyeballs. ..OMG. I can see that fake eye ball in the mashed potatoes now. I am beginning to agree with Northern Nesting..they are taking after you. Too funny girl. Blessings for all, xoxo,Susie

Penny @ Penny's Vintage Home said...

I think she's pulling your leg....lol...hugs...

Fairhope Supply Co. said...

This list cracks me up! I still have my handwritten list from when I was probably four or five, and it included, "wig." I think it was because Bat Girl wore one.

FABBY'S LIVING said...

Oh lol, she's too much! I too love the last one...waiting an entire year, heheheeee... My 7 year old one was making a list and checking it soo many times that I never read what she wrote cause she ran away holding her secret to Santa! Oh children, they're the best!
Hugs,
FABBY

Katie Clooney said...

Priceless! You can't make this stuff up!

Kelly said...

That is TOO funny! She is obviously very creative AND smart. I wish my 13 yr old son wanted things that were so affordable as that. Mine says he wants a new "gaming" computer! Ugh.......those are close to $1000. So, we're going to compromise and get a new desktop that will allow him to play computer games since our current one does not. That will be much less expensive and we can all use the upgraded version.

Patty Antle said...

So cute!! Boombox - wow, I'm going to have to Google that one! Your darling granddaughter looks so grown up!

Row homes and Cobblestones said...

Out of the mouth of babes!!! Adorable photo of Sweet Cheeks, plenty of time to rethink that wish list, hmmm dog on a tee might turn into one of those robotic dogs. Hey Diana I'm sure your favorite store Walmart has a boom box for Ya!!! Too funny, enjoy your day.

Salmagundi said...

Cherish this time in her life. My grandkids want cars and smart phones!!!! I remember one year at age 5 that all that my daughter wanted was 'Silly Putty'; and my son wanted the moon ---- try to balance that out. Sally

bj said...

what's fake crutches..?? hahhaa...so silly.
and I just googled to see if they still make boom boxes and yes, ma'am....Walmart has CUTE ones, soooooo........

June said...

I LOVE it Diana! That's hilarious! The instruction book cracked me up!!!!
I can hardly wait to see what's on my little grands lists this year.
hugs from here...

SuperLux said...

Cute bow! :)

This post also reminded me that it's time for that list again. Hmm...

Beatrice Euphemie said...

Ha ha! So cute - I'm sure it will change. By the hour.. or maybe by the minute. Love that she wants a writer's kit - takes after her Nana. xo Karen

Junkchiccottage said...

So cute. Love Sweet Cheeks and her innocent love of life and that girl knows what she wants lol! Too sweet.

Meredith @ The Laundry Can Wait said...

Fake crutches? I'm dying! The math book and the boom box are my other personal favorites. :) XOXO

Diana,
Oh yes they still make boom boxes-got one last Christmas for my hubby as a replacement, found it at Walmart. It's a Sony brand, it has AM/FM radio and it plays CD's and casette tapes! Bet your grand daughter doesn't know what they are-LOL! Have been a reader of your blog for awhile through Sweet Tea but first time commenter. God Bless you and yours and enjoy the Holidays.

LV said...

Nothing greater than spending time with the grans. I have a great grand son that adore. He is ten, but going on 20 His wish list is not for a ten year old. I am having problem today leaving comments.

Tina@WhatWeKeep said...

LOL! She's the cutest thing, Diana. I'd like an instruction book for a few things, too. Fake crutches? For a fake injury? Maybe involving the fake eyeball? I miss having little ones around. Stay warm up there!

CelestinaMarie@SouthernDayDreams said...

Oh Diana, this is the cutest ever. SC is too adorable. I can't imagine how she came up with these and the boom box. Do kids even say that anymore?? LOL
Fake crutches really had me going!! and reading about the instruction booklet for last year's gift. Too funny. So much fun at your house with your grands.
Have a great weekend.
Hugs and Blessings

Sherry @ Thrift My House said...

So funny! Fake crutches cracked me up!!! I wanted crutches when I was her age. Wouldn't that be a nightmare now! She sounds like a sweetie! Have a good evening!

ImSoVintage Laura Walker said...

We can always count on Sweet Cheeks to entertain us. I think I might have an old boom box out in the garage I can send her. Can't help out with the instructions though for the clock. LOL
xo

Betsy@ coastal-colors said...

Priceless! Wanting the instructions really cracked me up! She is adorable! I think you have a future mathematician on your hands!

Lisa @ Texas Decor said...

Oh, that is hilarious!! My favorite was the instruction booklet for the Hello Kitty clock! :) It's funny they both want crutches. My niece who's 9 also wanted (and got) fake crutches for Christmas last year. She wants to be a doctor some day, so we'll see. For her birthday, my mom went to the dollar store and put together a whole basket full of bandaids, rolls of gauze, wraps with those butterfly clips, ice packs, etc. and she LOVED it!!

Debbie said...

A fake eyeball?! Oh my. That girl is just the funniest kid ever!! What fun she is, Diana.
Thank you for sharing this with the rest of us. lol
Have a terrific weekend.
Love ya.
Debbie

Liz@ Infuse With Liz said...

I dunno the fake eyeball is pretty funny! Don't you love their innocent minds!

joanne said...

fake cruthches...does she want a fake broken leg too? Math book and an eyeball...that child has a great imagination. Either that or you've kept her locked up too long.

Shirley@Housepitality Designs said...

The list is too funny!!!..my fav..the instruction booklet!!!...Grandchildren are the best...they keep us young and keep us in laughter!!!

Missy George said...

They are so entertaining. I guess they keep you hopping. Do they mind when you laughed at them? Have you tried putting a battery in the kitty clock?

chateau chic said...

This is just too funny...but actually not a bad wish list. SweetCheeks is just too cute!!

Kay G. said...

I wonder about the fake eyeball and fake crutches! And I love the idea of her asking for the Hello Kitty clock instruction book, so funny!

Red Rose Alley said...

Diana,
Number 7 was my favorite........instruction book for the Hello Kitty clock that she got last year!.......she's says the funniest things sometimes. :~)

love,
~Sheri

amazingsusan said...

There's only one thing on MY list: inner peace :)

Deborah@Green Willow Pond said...

How cute! When my daughter was that age she wouldn't have asked for a math book, but she would now...she loves math! I'm wondering why she wants a fake eyeball...maybe to scare here Nana with??? Too cute!

Musings from Kim K. said...

Oh my goodness! I love this list. Josie's Christmas list includes a lot of science experiments...especially anything to do with rocks, spy kits and legos.

My Garden Diaries said...

That is what makes her such a doll! Is this just the sweetest thing ever! Happy week weekend lady! Nicole xoxo

Donna said...

That is priceless, Diana! Sweetcheeks is a girl who knows just what she wants in life:) I have never heard of fake crutches before!! Too funny!

cynthia lee designs said...

Her list was too cute!! Kids really do say or write the darnest things! :-)
~Cindy

Mindy said...

I laughed out loud at the instruction book. And I swear, my daughter added crutches to her list this morning. Must be something in the water.

Mary@mydogsmygardenandmary said...

If you every figure that one out, please let us know LOL Who knows where their ideas come from. What is with the crutches? Does she have a friend that is on them? I can understand the instruction book, after she wants her clock to work.
All to funny Diana.
Have fun this weekend.
Mary

Gypsy Heart said...

Their minds are truly incredible aren't they? You might check Amazon or eBay for a boombox. I found a portable CD player at Walmart for my bedroom...for my nightly meditations. It's not the best but it's fine for my needs.

I really hope she gets that instruction book! :)
xo
Pat
P.S. Do they know someone that uses crutches? ha ha

lynn said...

if she gets an eyeball and crutch, you'll have to show us what she does with them--so funny!

Tete said...

The only thing I find wrong with the list is the Taylor Swift CD...that's just not right.
