A wish, A dream, A fake boobie?


I didnt have a new post for yall today till this morning. Here goes...
Wishes...dreams...we all em'. We always see what other people have and think we need the same. We long to be like the girl nextdoor or nextblog I should say. We all do it. We just long for stuff we dont have. This morning I woke up to Ken on my counter. He made me start thinking about myself. I feel so blessed! My prince did come.....

My dream house was built...a much smaller one but it holds my most precious things. My family. That got me to thinking it's ok to want and to dream but it also made me see just how much Im blessed with. I may never win a giveaway or take a trip around the world but Im happy to be me.
Now I bet your guessing where the boobie comes in....After feeling so blessed and putting a smile on my face I began to clean my counter off (sorry Ken but you gotta go). Under Maddy's bed is where she keeps all of her Barbie stuff. Her dreams..her wishes... Oh how I hope they all come true for her. She is 8....ladies. With that same smile on my face and now wondering what my sweet babies dreams and wishes are I return Ken... to find this!

Tucked way back between her Barbie dream house and her very extensive clothing and furniture line....**!!! G.A.S.P.**!! What in the world! It's her sisters bra and one fake boobie (not mine)....ugh! Why oh why cant they stay little and have sweet little barbie dreams.... Boobies! Is that what 8 year olds wish for now? Oh my goodness. Note to self...again! Be Happy with what the Lord gives you! He know's just what you need....when you need it~

  1. Oh my goodness! For a moment I felt all mushy and glad that you reminded me of important things.

    Now I'm laughing my head off!!

  2. Oh Susie,
    I had to laugh on this one...It took me back to when I was 8!
    A neighbor lady brought over some clothes her 13 year old daughter didn't wear to see if any of it fit me. In the pile of clothes was a bra. I secretly put that bra on and would not take it off. My dad snuck in my room in the middle of the night and threw it away-I woke up looking for my wonder bra and it was gone- So what's an 8 year old to do? That's right I went looking in the trash and when I found it I put it on and didn't take it off even at night-I slept in it. It made me feel so grown up~
    My mom still laughs about me and that ridiculous bra to this day.
    Kids do grow up so fast~♥
    Have a great day with that precious pumpkin of yours.
    Robin~♥

  3. When I was 8 Charlies Angels was on. I cut my barbie's hair in wings like Farrah's. I didn't have a bra( my mom was like a DDD so tryin to put on one of hers would have wrapped around me 40 times) so I would tie up my tshirt where you go through the neck and it pulls down into a tail in the front- that made a "shelf" for all the socks you could put in and not fall out the bottom. I then would practice posing in the mirror. John Travolta poster in the background.

  4. LOL! Too cute.

    My daughter was the opposite...in noooo hurry.

    And now she'd like to take off the ones she's got because she says they get in the way, lol.

    I however couldn't get mine enough and don't think it's fair that I didn't get the big huge ones the rest of my family lucked out with *hmph*

    My 4 year old neice was very upset with me when I took them shopping and wouldn't let her buy "boobs". She was pointing at the bras. She didn't want to look at anything else, the only thing from the whole store she wanted was the "boobs" (bras).

    Girls rule.

  5. Susie...you got me cracking up...How sweet what little girls think beyond our thoughts. Well Lexi is still into babydolls and bottles. She has mentioned about wanting a bra a few weeks agon and I told her she had nothing to fill one up and she said she did have boobies justlike me...lol...I just had to walk off and wonder why a 4 year old wants to grow up so fast. Oh well I will just remember also how blessed I am.

  7. THAT is so funny! (and very cute and sweet at the same time) I used to do the same thing as Southerner with my favorite Fonzie shirt..too funny.

  8. Maybe Ken wasn't pleased and suggested the fake boobies?

    Just think it could be worse... like a thong?

    Thanks for the smile

  9. My eight year old wore a bra the other day. She felt so grown up. She kept mentioning it, "You can't see my bra, can you?" while company was here. So sweet.

    When I was 9 or 10, I stuffed one and wore it to school. I swore I hadn't stuffed it. Like no one noticed!! ~blush~

  10. Oh dear! That is the funniest thing ever! I was in no hurry so I have no ideaa what to think about that! You definitely made me laugh!

  11. Oh my I am ROFLOL at that!!! Lexi (at 9 1/2) wears a sports bra every day!! Oh yes, all her friends do so she has to also...LOVES them. The other day we went to Penneys and she wanted to try on a padded bra. She fits into the size 30AAA (or whatever the smallest one is) of course there is nothing to put in those tiny little bitty cups but she put her shirt back on and was saying it looked like she had boobs (she said humps)...oh gosh I was cracking up saying there is nothing to put in there. After much begging about buying them right now- I told her she might get a couple of those for Christmas....sheesh

  15. My daughter is 7 and with birthday money bought two High School Musical "bras" (more like a really short tank top) - ahh it starts so early!

  16. Not sure if you wanted this to be hilarious or not but it was! That would have been so funny to see. :)

    ReplyDelete
  17. oh my goodness! Mine is about to be 7 and she asked me the other day when I would buy her a bra! I told her when she had some boobs to put in it! lol Then she said, "Will mine be a big as yours?"....Ahh...sweet, sweet innocense! hehe

  18. Too funny.
    Little girls are always fascinated with what the older girls have.
    Watch out, Mom.

  19. I think that this is one of my favorite posts! It's thought provoking and funny too. It's what I needed to read today. It's my baby's twelfth birthday and I'm feeling like time is just passing by too quickly!
    Why is it that when you're young you can't wait for time to fly and when you're old, you wish time would just slow down and give you time to catch up?!?!

  20. A very sweet and funny post!

  21. What a great reminder for us to be thankful for the things we have........and thankful for our children and the humor they bring into our lives! I used to stuff socks in my shirts when I was little because I wanted to look like Dolly Parton- boy am I glad now that that wish never came true!!!

  22. Hi Susie,
    That is too funny! I once found my almost two year old daughter "smoking" a sucker stick and using the top of her diaper pail as an ashtray. This is the same daughter who wanted to wear mascara and Lee press-on nails to nursery school. Some girls are just born to be glamorous.

  23. That was a hilarious story! My 11 yr old didn't want a bra but I had to make her get one...it was time! She doesn't want to grow up...not yet anyway.

    ReplyDelete
  24. Hi Susie! Oh, how funny!! My first bra my mom bought me had points!! I was ever so embarrassed! Why she didn't buy me the little stretchy cups things is beyond me! Oh, you did have to bring back that memory, didn't you? lol
    Be a sweetie,
    Shelia :)

  26. Such truer words were never said, Susie!

  27. It is so natural...I used to dream of them too...I would do silly things that friends would say that would make them grow...I pinched them,jogged in place for an hour,hung upside down and took 2 flintstone vitamins a day...And nothing ...So, I did what every young woman would do...I stuffed them for two years!!!....I went from nothing to a C cup.....Until one day on the playground the stuffing was flowing out of my shirt...I ran to the bathroom and stayed there! We all want to be like the images that are put in front of us....I still sometimes catch myself looking at someone else and saying boy, I wish I were her....But really I don't because I like me! Finally!

  28. Dear Miz Susie,
    What a precious post today! I never had a daughter, just my son, but I remember dreaming of boobies when I was in 5th and 6th grade. I particularly remember this one peasant style dress with elastic neck band that I would play gypsy dress up in and stuff the top with wash cloths! My BF at the time asked me when I was wearing it trick or treating why I stuffed the top?!?! So some girls must wish for boobies earlier than others I guess. Anyways, precious post today and I love seeing your beautiful "you did it yourself" house, still haven't found mine yet to put together... *smiles*

  29. I remember the days of wanting boobies.... How cute, they grow up fast! Much too fast so hang on to them as long as you can.
    Take care, DebraK

  30. Oh Susie they do grow up so fast. I just celebrated my daughter's 19th birthday wow where does the time go? Your post reminded me of something my 10year old said the other day. She was having her first school dance and I was telling her that her daddy would be on a business trip and wouldn't get to see her off, but we would take lots of pictures and email him. She looked at me almost relieved and said "It's probably best he isn't here mom." Needless to say I was confused then she said "I don't want to break his heart by growing up so fast." It just amazed me that they must sometimes realize it too. What I wanted to do was flip that hourglass over and go have another tea party with her instead of sending her off to her dance. I hope you have a wonderful day. I'm sending you a great big hug, Paula

  31. Very funny indeed. Love the horse.

  32. Hey Susie, I still wish for boobies. And I'm way over 8!!

    ReplyDelete
  33. That is absolutely hilarious!! With that said, I have to admit that I can totally commiserate with the melancholy that comes along with watching them grow up TOO fast. Thanks for reminding me to stop and enjoy them while I can!!

  34. Susie, I am right there with you! I have a 7 year old daughter and she wants to wear my clothes and anything "sassy". The other day I found her doing model poses in her mirror??? I remember changing her diaper for crying out loud. Sigh, "days are long but years are short". So true!
    P.S.( I just ordered TWO of your tassels from your Etsy. I am so excited to get them I can hardly stand it.)

  35. That is so funny! And yes when we look at all the surounds us, we are very blessed :)

    Now if only Nov. 4th had turned out the way we had hope, things would better... a girl can dream cant she? :)

  36. Susie, I have tagged you, so stop by and hope you join in the fun.

    I can remember when my Chris was 12 (37 now) and she came and told me, "Mom I don't want to play with dolls anymore, can we pack them up"! Well I sat on the floor, packing and crying. They do grow up fast. I don't live in a Mansion or big house, but I do appreciate what I have, but I still dream about the house I would like to have. I love this post. Love and Hugs, Pat

  37. is this what I have to look forward to? I have 3 little girls, who are really not that little anymoreI haven't seen this yet-but I know it's not too far behind.

    I agree with you about all the "things" that are truly important. We have had some major family things happening right now, and it's nothing like something scary to make you appreciate that it's people that make us happy, not things!!

    So, did you make any of the fruit things. (sorry i didn't know what to call them) I wanted some details and some secrets.

  38. Hey Miz Susie,
    If you get a chance girlfriend stop by my blog cause I passed an award along to you!

  39. Sweet post and then a chuckle at the end, loved it. I have to tell you my 17 year old daughter has the opposite problem, 36 triple D. Can't even find a bra that fits and at 5'1" not the most comfortable thing in the world. Careful what you wish for. I left a little something on my blog for you. Come and see. Pam

  40. Drop by and see my new background..yes I am proud of myself,I didn't even need the kids to help me!!

  41. Hi Susie! They do grow up too fast, don't they. My 7 year old daughter sometimes says things that just sound way too old. I know it's because she hears it from her older sister, but it just makes me cringe. Oh, and I'm another one that was guilty of that silly t-shirt twisting thing! LOL

  42. Isn't that just the cutest :) Don't you just love how the kids keep you hopping? Check out the kind of trouble a 20 year old can get himself into..... http://thegreenhousediaries.blogspot.com/2008/11/while-we-were-away.html

    He use to be so cute :)

  44. Too cute...but contentment must be achieved by each of us..on our own. I think it is the hardest of "things" to attain too!

  45. Kids are so funny aren't they? This is a super cute post.

  46. Oh my gosh~ this is a riot! But, I loved the gentle reminders at the start of the post, so true! The end of the post though...I'm cracking up!
