BANTERING WITH BRIGHT EYES-A NEW FEATURE

I am going to do some 
short little snippets of 
CONVERSATIONS WITH THE KID
every once in a while called
BANTERING WITH BRIGHT EYES.

Probably everyone has one
REALLY FUNNY KID
in their family
OR
you know someone that has 
THAT KID.

Ours used to be 
SWEETCHEEKS
and many of you followed along
and laughed at her antics.
SweetCheeks is STILL funny
but on an "older kid" level now.

Well, THIS KID, is 
JUST AS FUNNY.
Here she is after cutting her bangs tight
to her head in front.
Yep--she is THAT KID!

She is not as DROLL as SWEETCHEEKS
but she is funny in a different way.
Smart beyond her years.

We were visiting this past week.
She was rubbing Papa's (MyHero) head
and looking at it.
He just got a haircut and it is
VERY SHORT!
I did NOT have my camera so missed
the photo op--but you will get the idea.

So-Here is 
CONVERSATION #1!

She climbs up on Papa's lap and is
rubbing his head.

Bright Eyes:  Papa- What is wrong with your head?
Papa:  What do you mean?
BE: Look at your hair!!!! (laughing)
Papa: What's wrong with my hair?
BE: It's all spotty and missing in spots  Why don't you just shave your whole head? That would look a LOT better, Papa!
Papa:  My hair is just fine, Bright Eyes!
BE:  Wait- Let me get you a mirror! (as she runs off to get a mirror from her "princess kit")

Thanks for humoring me by reading this.
While I am doing these to give you a smile 
for the day I am also doing them so that we
have a record of 
THINGS SHE SAYS.

Have a wonderful, wonderful week!!!!

Diana, I love that. Kids just have a way of saying truthful things in a funny way. :):) That little lady is going to be something. Blessings to all, love, xoxo, Susie

She will not be deterred!

Lauren @ My Wonderfully Made said...

HAHAHAHAHAHA!!!! That is hilarious!!! What a cutie pie she is! I LOVE meeting little ones like that who are so confident and self-assured that they will talk to anyone and give their opinions and thoughts freely lol! I have twin girls who are now 26 and they are both very funny (especially when they play off of each other!) but my one girl . . . well, she has the sharpest, funniest wit. She keeps us in stitches!

Linda @ A La Carte said...

I love it! I also have the most amusing Grands! They say and do such funny things. I love them and this is a good way to keep those memories. I was saying how fat my cat is and Tiger says, well Grandma your a little fat yourself. I laughed so hard, oh so true sweet boy!

Connie said...

That reminded me of the Art Linkletter show . . . do you remember the kids he would talk with? Children are so sweet and I think it is wonderful that you record these sweet moments on your blog, they will be great memories some day.

Sylvia said...

Red Rose Alley said...

That Bright Eyes sure is getting big. What a cutie. Did she cut her own bangs? My mom used to cut my bangs when I was in school, and one time they were crooked haha. But that was the year of my favorite school picture. : ) I can't believe Bright Eyes is in pre-school now.

love, ~Sheri

An Oasis in the Desert said...

Warm hugs,

Oh love that kid! What a cutie. Love that she just puts it out there. Too funny.
Have a great new week.
Hugs,

FABBY'S LIVING said...

Oh my goodness, this "new funny kid" is adorable and she looks like you so much! I was laughing while reading your post cause our Maxima is a funny one too, she also cut her bangs real short last year, lol.. She looked Oriental, except with huge eyes..hehe
You have such bunch of cuties and you are so blessed dear friend.
Hugs,
Fabby

Nonnie said...

That is exactly why I like to record the dun things they say. I love going back to read them. She is so precious. I bet she has a really cute voice, too.

Nonnie said...

FUN, not dun. Fat fingers here. 😂

NanaNor's said...

Diana, she is so funny!!! Doubt your man thought so! I've got a couple of those in our family too. Once a granddaughter was sitting on my brother's lap(he's in his 70's)and she started playing his neck gobbler skin(you know what I mean)and wanted to know what it was...we still laugh about that. Actually maybe it's called the turkey gobble part.
Hugs,
Noreen

Suzanne said...

Hilarious! And she is a beautiful little girl. You are a lucky grandma and a good one. I love all your stories. 😘

Donna said...

Aww, how funny! I do believe little Miss Bright Eyes must have gotten her sense of humor from her nana!! She is so darn cute. Glad you were able to visit, hope you had a nice trip. Thanks for sharing, I've been in dire need of a laugh!!

AnnMarie aka Vintage Junkie aka NaNa said...

Kids say the darndest things, don't they? :-) She must be so much fun to be around. I hope you had a great trip!

Terri Steffes said...

I love kid stories. Guess that’s why I stayed in public education so long!

Stacey said...

That's such a sweet story and the kind that you need to remember. ;)

Cecilia said...

LOL! That is so funny. I can just see her running to get that mirror to show her papa his patchy head. LOL.
(even with her bangs cut way up, she's as cute as can be!)

have a great week! hugs,
Cecilia

~Lavender Dreamer~ said...

What a cutie pie she is! And I hope she always says what she thinks...it will take her a long way in life! Enjoy your week sweet friend and give your hubby hugs for all of us!

Debby Ray said...

It's great that you are putting these cute memories on your blog to always have them to look back. Nothing as precious as the innocence of a child!

Kids are so honest, sometimes it hurts. Hopefully Papa can take it! She's a little darling, Diana. I imagine the two of you are proud as punch. Enjoy your evening! xo ♥

At Rivercrest Cottage said...

Little sweeties can get away with so much more than us. Obviously your Hero needed another look! We love having grandkids. As Dave Ramsey often says on his podcast: If I'd known how great having grandkids would be I would've been nicer to their parents.

Cheryl said...

She is so adorable. It seems like almost every little girl has that moment when scissors and hair come together.
xo Laura

Henny Penny said...

She is adorable! and I love the little story. Reminds me of our little Madison (who is now in college).

kitty@ Kitty's Kozy Kitchen said...

Oh my goodness, Diana, Bright eyes and that adorable face, and those bangs!! I just want to kiss those cheeks of hers!! What a cute story with her Papa and his head!!

pogonip said...

Cutting your hair is a childhood rite of passage--how many times did I have to say that to kindergarten parents over the fifteeen years I taught! I had to laugh when my own grand-daughter cut herself some bangs to match mine. Her mom, not so much!

Cathy, 1929 Charmer Cottage said...

My hubs has a HUGE spot....Bright eyes is so adorable and seem to have the gift of words like her Grandma does. She's getting so big..

Cristina Garay said...
