THE "UN"-INVITATION

For those of you that have
kids or grandkids,
you will likely have had an experience
like this!

Quite a while ago
when the kids were here for 
a snow day
SWEET CHEEKS
told me excitedly that on
the last Friday in February
her class was having 
A SPECIAL PERSON DAY.
Nana, she asked me so sweetly,
Will YOU be 
MY SPECIAL PERSON
because you are my 
MOST SPECIAL PERSON?

With a melting heart I said:
YES!

Later the next week, after school,
she called to remind me and to ask me
once again...
Nana, Will YOU be my SPECIAL PERSON?

With a smile on my face, of course I said:
YES!

Five mintues later the phone rang.
Nana, It's SweetCheeks.
Nana, You don't have to come to 
school next Friday for 
SPECIAL PERSON'S DAY.

Why not? I asked.
Well, because Uncle Ryan said he 
COULD COME AFTER ALL!
So- I am NOT invited anymore?
Yeah....you're not invited.
Thanks, SweetCheeks!
You're Welcome!

I'm thinking of showing up anyway
with a TREAT.
We'll SEE who is the most
SPECIAL PERSON then!

  3. LOL!!! Too funny! They crack me up! A couple of weekends ago, Evan and I drove up to see the boys' basketball games... a surprise visit. The boys were very excited to see us, but Alex quickly asked, "Who invited you to come?". As if we NEEDED an invitation to watch them play. Ha! Little stinkers. They are full of quips that keep us chuckling among ourselves! I'll bet that sweet treat will put you in the first rate special category. Hee hee. LOVE 'em! blessings ~ tanna

  6. Diana, That is so funny. You were the special person in the wings . :):) So Uncle Ryan beat you out. I bet he won't be bringing any of those fancy cupcakes. LOL. Diana, our grands used to have "Grandparent's Day" at their school. We went for Brockie..he had Papaw Ted, Nana(me) and grandma Donna. But one little boy only had a picture of his grandpa, cause his grandpa had passed away...so Brock said he would share me with that little boy..well about 1/2 hour later, Brock tells the kid, "You are hogging my Nana, here's grandma Donna for you. "LOL Kids, they keep you guessing. Blessings, xoxo, Love, Susie
    p.s. hug SC for me. :)

  7. Oh my sweetness....this is too darn funny. I suppose it's better to be second in line than NOT in line at all. :)

    ReplyDelete
  8. AWWWW:( That made me a little sad! Yes, show up anyway! All of my Grandkids are getting older and I am not always their choice for things. I have to do like you and say OK:) Have a blessed day dear friend, HUGS!

  9. I guess it's a good thing that nanas are so forgiving! My sisters and I are laughing loudly about this!

    ReplyDelete
  10. Oh my! You're our Special Person, Diana, you never cease to make us laugh. Yes, take the Treats anyway!

    ReplyDelete
  11. I thought it was headed for the "oh they meant handicapped people" route in terms of "special".

    ReplyDelete
  12. Oh Sweet Cheeks you better rethink that one. We know whi is the special one and it's not Uncle Ryan. 😍

    ReplyDelete
  13. Oh my precious friend. The first of the post I'm almost in tears because being a Nana (mimi) I understand how you'd feel. Then Only You can end it with a gut wrenching laugh! <3

    ReplyDelete
  14. Aww...a little bittersweetness here. So, are you really going and taking the sweet treats??

    ReplyDelete
  15. Got to love her honesty, at least.

    ReplyDelete
  16. How awful. Stooped by from Laurie's blog, intrigued by the title of your post.

    ReplyDelete
  17. From the mouths of babes. Gotta love her or else you'd cry. Or maybe you did anyway. I would have!

    ReplyDelete
  18. I'm laughing but crying also! Kids...they can be a bit too honest sometimes can't they.

    ReplyDelete
  19. Heehee... out of the mouths of babes! Lucky we have tough shells - motherhood will do that to you. Enjoy your weekend dear Diana....

    ReplyDelete
  20. Oh my!
    That is something about children, they are brutally honest at times!
    LOL!
    Have a lovely weekend, my friend.

    ReplyDelete
  21. Wait a minute! Sound like you got demoted . . . not so special after all, LOL. I'll just bet that Uncle Ryan doesn't show up with a treat like that:)

    ReplyDelete
  22. How I needed a chuckle this morning with everything that is happening. You have to love our grand kids and hope we are teaching them right from wrong. Hugs and Prayers from your Missouri Friend Shirley

  23. Kids! You gotta love their honesty! Or fickleness!

    ReplyDelete
  24. aw, I am certain that you indeed are very special to this little darling!

    ReplyDelete
  25. Hahahahhaaa... kids are something else; but then I know you are her special person, indeed.
    They never think twice about anything they frankly say and that is what we lose when we grow up to be polite, lol... But wait till you show up with your goodies !
    Hugs dear,
    Fabby

  26. I remember that story, Diana! Still makes me laugh:) Oh the brutal honesty of kids, right?:)

    ReplyDelete
  27. Oh gosh that just totally cracked me up!!!! Kids! xo

    ReplyDelete
  28. That is so sad, but funny too. Dear Sweet Cheeks, Nana's always love to spoil their grands, unless they hurt our feelings...so be careful with your nana or you might not get special treats and time together.
    Hugs Diana,
    Noreen

  29. Oh my gosh - kids are so honest aren't they? Glad you have a thick and loving skin. Been there myself. Love, sandie

    ReplyDelete
  30. LOL! Awwww Nana, next time maybe. I'm sorry, but that's funny! :)

    xoxo

    ReplyDelete
  31. That Sweet Cheeks! Kids don't hold back, do they?

    ReplyDelete
  32. If you want the truth, ask a child. Telling it like it is, does not mean they do not still love us, spreading it in a different way. Such treasured memories.

    ReplyDelete
  33. Lol, oh dear. I guess you were her 2nd choice.

    ReplyDelete
  34. Oh from a build up to a let down....but you are still her fav special person!

    ReplyDelete
  35. Goodness, Diana--my husband and I are still laughing at this one! I guess you know your place! Have a great weekend. ♥

    ReplyDelete
  36. This is funny! You should show up with that treat. :) Grandmas always understand, don't they.

    ReplyDelete
  37. The child giveth and the child taketh away, and warmth our hearts.

    ReplyDelete

  38. Too funny. :) I hope everyone is well there. I haven't been around here much. I hope you all had a great Holiday season. Take care, Janet W

    ReplyDelete
  39. Sweet Cheeks knows you can step aside just this once because you are ALWAYS her special person and she needs to give someone else a chance. xx K

    ReplyDelete
  40. Darn when that reality hits it hits hard haha haha But she loves you!

    ReplyDelete
  41. Haha! Kids!

    You are still special! ;-D

    ReplyDelete
  42. Aw sweetie don't let that hurt your feelings! And I'd show up with the goodies :)

    ReplyDelete
  43. So did you? haha! That would've catapulted you to #1 for sure! But second choice ain't bad either!

    ReplyDelete
  44. That's too funny. Treats will definitely vault you to the "all-time" special person. :)

    ReplyDelete
  45. First reaction I would have been a bit 'ticked off' and hurt :) What a clear test from the Universe for you to pass somehow..

    ReplyDelete
  46. OUCH!! I love your attitude though. Keep being who you are and Sweet Cheeks will notice and remember. I keep thinking of how I want my grandchildren to think of me when they are 20-25ish. It's what I do now that they will have ingrained in their brains. Sometimes it hurts but it pays off in the end!

    ReplyDelete
  47. Now, it will really be a funny story if Uncle Ryan gets "uninvited" for another family member.

    ReplyDelete
  48. Wow...takes the wind out your sails doesn't it? Oh well, it's only time
    until you're back in first place!

  49. Oh my goodness! You most definitely have to take those treats now haha, I love the way kids think, so honest and uninhibited. I have 5 year old twin grandsons that don't live in our town. To keep them thinking of me, I keep refreshing my toy closet and they FaceTime me so we can play (via FaceTime) with my toys. Today they called while I was in the shower, my phone showed 10 unanswered FaceTime calls. When I finally called back they wanted to see Luigi, my newest addition to their Mario brothers collection.
    Have a Happy Sunday!

  50. Oh Diana! Dumped in a most refreshing way. I hope she never learns to tell little white lies. Telling you her first choice can come now made me love her all the more!

    ReplyDelete
  51. I totally love this!! Looking forward to my grandson saying something similar one day! XX

    ReplyDelete
  52. Ha Ha, so who was it Uncle Ryan? or You or both!! So cute!!

    ReplyDelete

  53. leave it to SC, at least she didn't lie to you. Us grandma's have to have big hearts as they don't mean to hurt us.

    How is Lulu doing, hope she has recovered.

    Hugs,
    Mary

    ReplyDelete
  54. Oh Diana, that's crushing... but I think those ice cream cones would definitely tip the scales back in your favor :) Then it might be Uncle Ryan's turn to feel slighted, lol! Hugs to you today dear friend!

    ReplyDelete
  55. No way is Uncle Ryan cooler than you! You must fight and win this! πŸ˜‚

    ReplyDelete
  56. Aww, Sweet Cheeks...you just crushed your grandma's heart! Though I bet she's so sweet that she simply has MANY special people in her life! I hope she was happy to see you AND her uncle. :-)

    ReplyDelete
  57. So. . . did you end up going with a treat, Ms. Not-Uncle-Ryan? :)

    For what it's worth, I think you're awfully cool.
