I Don't Wanna Grow Up!

Hello, Dear Ones! I'm joining our Dear Mary at The Little Red House today for Mosaic Monday. Thank you Mary for being our Most Gracious Hostess. I'm also joining our Dear Sally at Smiling Sally for Blue Monday and thank her for always being the Bluest One each Monday.

Now we've been cleaning out closets and such and I just happened to run across a box filled with My Pretty Ponies that belonged to my Dear Daughter who is 35 years old now!

All these little ponies were really in great shape ~ especially being that they were purchased in the mid 1980s. :)

Have you ever seen such darling faces and look at those gorgeous tiny eyes!

So what is a Most Marvelous Mother to do? Take out all the Pretty Ponies and place them on the dining room table and play 'Beauty Shop'! Yes, and I did just that! :) I brushed each bushy little tale and each tangled mane and the result was a herd of beautifully coiffured Pretty Ponies! They all fell in love with me. Of course they did! :)

There were the most tiny little baby ones wearing diapers!

There were ones ready to jump through their hoops. One, two, three ~Go...!

There were ones who looked like merponies complete with shells, fins and always gorgeous tails and manes. There were unicorn ponies. There were ponies running, jumping, sitting, standing, smiling ones, shy ones, ones with straight hair, ones with curly hair, ones with very naturally curly hair. There were smooth rubbery bodied ones and then there were pony bodies covered with fuzzy stuff and they came in every color of the rainbow. There was even one big white stuffed pony. Each pony had his or her own individual brush or comb!

These ponies are so talented. Here they are line dancing! Oh, they were good! :)

I called my Dear Daughter to tell her what I was up to and she was thrilled I had found her Pretty Ponies and told me which one was her favorite. "The white one with the rainbow colored hair!" Okay! This little lovely must be crowned as the Princess of the Pretty Ponies! All of her friends were thrilled and said it was her birthday! They had a party for her, birthday cake, presents and noise makers!

Can you tell I had a marvelous time? I like to be a kid sometimes too even though I'm olden!

And all of the Pretty Ponies said, "Let's Par Tay!!" :)

Now before I sing you a little Note Song I wanted to invite you to my very first blogland linky party on Friday, May 7th. I'll be hosting a Daring Darling Bathroom Beauty Snapping Divas Party! You can click on the little pink button on my sidebar for all the info you need. So get to cleaning your mirrors, putting on your most beautiful smiles, grabbing your cameras (with your flash turned off, of course) and then come to my party and we'll have a great time! I may even invite the Pretty Ponies to come! :)

Be a bunch of sweeties,
Shelia ;)

I'll leave you with a little Note Song~ this song makes me cry too

Watercolor Ponies

There are watercolor ponies
On my refrigerator door
And the shape of something
I don't really recognize
Drawn by careful little fingers
And put proudly on display
A reminder to us all
Of how time flies

Seems an endless mound of laundry
And a stairway laced with toys
Gives a blow by blow
Reminder of the war
That we fight for their well-being
For their greater understanding
To impart a holy reverence
For the Lord

But, baby, what will we do
When it comes back to me and you?
They look a little less
Like little girls every day
Oh, the pleasure of watching
The children growing
Is mixed with a bitter cup
Of knowing the watercolor ponies
Will one day ride away

And the vision can get so narrow
As you view through your tiny world
And little victories can go by
With no applause
But in the greater evaluation
As they fly from your nest of love
May they mount up with wings
As eagles for His cause
~ sung by Wayne Watson
