What a Charmer!

(one of our many out-takes)

I''m not sure where she gets it from. Her father and I are far from charming.

However, God created something a little unique in La Petite Belle.

At the dentist yesterday, K Belle and I waited patiently in the waiting room while La Petite Belle was getting her check-up.

K Belle and I giggled quite a bit, hearing La Petite Belle talk the poor dental assistant's ear off.

Let's just say, we could have been in and out of there in 20 minutes. But, instead, it was more like 40.

When I finally got called in to wait for the dentist to give me the results of her check-up, the dental assistant said that La Petite Belle just became her favorite patient of all-time.

I, of course, was a little surprised.

The dental assistant said that La Petite Belle asked her how old she was. After the assistant said her age ... I think it was in her 20s, La Petite Belle said, "Really? Because you look like a teenager. I love her."

This may have been part of her scheme to get more than one of those junky little toys from the tooth treasure box. I'm not sure. But, it worked. She got to pick four.

La Petite Belle also showed extreme interest in how to floss and asked the assistant to please demonstrate so that she could do it the right way at home. 

Hmmm ... really?

This is the same child that I have to tell to turn right back around and re-brush her teeth some days ... WITH TOOTHPASTE ... and not just use mouthwash to cover up the stink (Mama can tell the difference, you know.).

Now, she's a floss expert.

But, you know, I've come to realize this really is just who she is.

When she showed up at work in the afternoon, as I was getting off, she headed to my pregnant friend and co-worker's office. She walked in, kissed her on the cheek, and said, "So, how's the baby?"

So, there you have it.

She's just sweet. She's just charming. She's just honestly concerned about everyone.

I can remember even when she was very young that she would pray for all the people in the world that were sick or didn't know Jesus and that God would bless all people.

So, if you know her, and she hugs you every time she sees you, it's for real. She means it.

That's not to say, she might not turn it on a little stronger if you have chocolate or a box full of dollar store toys.

And, yes, I'm late for Rachel's carnival. But, go over anyway. I'll be posting my pics tomorrow.

La Petite is a people person. Bless her little heart.....I bet she has lots of friends and can tell you something special about every one of them.

Your baby is cute. Every time she see me she says Hi Mrs. Carlie! and hugs me. Is she going to camp with me?

Mama Belle said...


Yes, she is. For sure, glad you're going.


Indeed they did.

She's so precious. What a wonderful spirit to have at such a young age!

And nothing wrong with being a little extra friendly when there is chocolate involved. Just shows she's been raised right.

She sounds like a total Sanguine to me - so cute. I hope someday I can meet her and hug her sweet neck (and yours).
