There was a little girl….

There was a little girl and she had a little curl,
Right in the middle of her forehead;

bellacurl

When she was good, she was very, very, good,

But when she was bad, she was horrid!

Awwww, poor Bella! She's not really horrid.....she's just never been one to hide her true feelings. Nothing wrong with that!

-- Henry Wadsworth Longfellow (author of “There was a little girl”)

Hahaha!!! Girls are so dramatic, aren't they?

Kimberly said...

Drama, drama, drama.

We have plenty of that too!

Have a great day! :)

Buckeroomama said...

LOL! That's exactly the poem that comes to mind when I think of my kids. :)

...and yes, little girls = drama, big time.

Kimberly@PrettyPinkMomma said...

Really, I'm 30 and I still don't know how to hide my true feelings. One thing is for sure, she definitely doesn't look happy in those last two pics! Did she get even more mad that you took a picture of her funky mood? I try to take pics of the boys when they have those great pissed off looks but they hide their face and get even more pissed that I was trying to capture the moment on camera. They do it just to spite me. The little buggers, don't they know that I have a blog?

Actually, I was thinking how much she looks like one of my grandies, while she makes that face.

Just found your blog because of a comment you made on Yaya Stuff. I like it.

I've always loved that poem! Love the pictures to go along with it. =)

Yaya said...

Love that pout! Haha!

Tracie said...

She's even cute in the "horrid" pictures!

Merri Ann said...

Yep ... we got that going on here as well ... just think how fun it's going to be at 13.

I love the stickers all over her face ha ha ha.

Karen & Gerard Zemek said...

Bella is cute no matter what her mood! I bet chocolate would help improve her mood there!

Mimi and Tilly said...

Bella is gorgeous. I love a girl who doesn't try to hide her feelings by trying to be good/nice all the time. You go Bella! :)

singedwingangel said...

Awww she is a beautiful whatever mood she is in lol.. and I so remember that nursery rhyme..

Lee the Hot Flash Queen said...

I have so many of those horrid pictures...I am going to display them all at her wedding.

Lisa said...

Aww she's so cute with the pouting lol. Girls can be so dramatic.....you kind of just have to smile:)

leigh said...

That little poem was written just for her. How cute!

Missy (Two Little Monkeys) said...

I love it! The many sweet faces of Bella. She is sweetie!

Creative Junkie said...

Ahhhh, an open book. My youngest is the same way. She can't help but express every emotion the second she feels it. My eldest? I think she's a poker champion in the making.

Brooke said...

sounds like a typical woman - or me at least!! :)

Mighty M said...

Hannah is the same way. I adore her sticker face!! :)

The Girl Next Door Grows Up said...

Working Mommy said...

Cute even when she is angry!!

Imjustagirl said...

My mom always used to say the same thing! She is awfully cute either way!!

Betty Manousos:cutand-dry.blogspot.com said...

LMJ said...

HOW CUTE!!! I love all the stickers on her face!

Jenna said...

So really could she be any cuter, sad face and all. Love it!

Shell said...

Love that pout!

Jessi said...

My daughter is a drama queen.

Love her little "mad" face :)

Eva Gallant said...

Perfect pics for the poem! so cute!

Sadia said...

I've known that rhyme my whole life, and had no idea it was Longfellow.

Of course, I grew up in a place where "horrid" was a regular old word, so it didn't sound archaic. Also, forehead did rhyme with horrid when I spoke Scots English. :)

I hear you. That's my Jessica. She's mostly sunshine, though.

Jessica said...

Delurking to say I love it!! I've used that same poem to describe my little girl many a time.

HT said...

The girls were pulling various kinds of faces the other day and that pout came up and they explained this is my : "I'm sad" face!! Then they even mastered an "I'm cute" face.

Nezzy said...

Bit of a Drama Queen is she? Heeeheehe! That Bella is just a livin' doll.

Ya'll have a wonderfully blessed day!

Sidnie said...

Oh, she looks like a beautiful handful!
Cade has some animated faces similiar to hers; it's a bit hard not to just crack up at those faces. :)

Nancy said...

Oh my goodness ... my mom used to say that to me ALL.THE.TIME!! LOL!

...is it wrong that I laughed at those last two pictures? ;)

Jenny said...

My daughter is the same way. I always tell her she's going to win an Oscar someday! LOL!

Amy said...

I have a little Drama Queen at my house too.

Have a great Monday.

cindi said...

I used to have a little girl just like that. Now she is a grown up mama who doesn't hide her feelings, is outspoken and stands up for herself. Nothin wrong with that at all.

D said...

Aww...I still think Bella's adorable. If she ever gets bored where you are ship her to me. We can have tea parties and play with dolls.

Kristina P. said...

I was such a stubborn brat when I was her age.

Semi-Slacker Mom said...

I am dying laughing!!!

Stephanie said...

LOL!!!
what a beautiful little girl.
reminds me of my daughter- she doesnt hide her emotions well either lol!

Heather said...

She's so cute! I'm amazed at the drama that comes along with girls!

The Lane Family said...

Someone we know who has older girls told us last night that girls just don't hide their emotions, no matter the age.

We are caring, feeling people and just a little "dramatic at times"

She is a cute little girl and even with the drama I know your home would be so much less fun without her.

With all those boys you need a little emotion :)

Annie said...

Ahh, she looks like a Drama Queen (both of my girls are Drama Queen,ha).

Have a nice week.

shortmama said...

She makes a cute pouty face though!

blueviolet said...

There is no mistaking when she's upset!

Mrsbear said...

The theater for that kid. She'll be a star!

Her personality comes across so clearly though your blog, Helene, she is too much. :) At least there's no guessing with her, you know exactly where she stands.

Together We Save said...

She is so cute!! I love her mad pictures.

Ginny Marie said...

My daughters OFTEN look like that at dinner time...because I make them eat things like gruel, or sometimes something even worse...duh duh DUH...broccoli!

Corrie Howe said...

Giver her a break, Mom! She is out numbered with brothers. Faith can totally relate...only in her case, she's the youngest.

And her brother, who is 10 years older than her, just announced his plan is to go to college, become a High School teacher and be back in time to teach her...and take care of all her dates.

Kaleena said...

It's pretty obvious when she's upset! She's cute when she's mad though:)

Flory said...

Loving the pout! And yes, there's nothing wrong with showing your feelings.

Kellene Maynard said...

I love this! It totally captures her essence! Thanks for visiting my blog earlier this past week! Visiting Via SIts!

Erin said...

It's so refreshing to see that my girls don't have a monopoly on drama. You really captured some perfect moments there!

Ms Bibi said...

Lol. I don't have little girl, but I observe this often at my best friend's house. She has 3.

Jungle said...

Oh gosh- I am having so much trouble leaving comments on your site these days- I keep getting error messages. Doh!

Must say though, even sulking, Bella is such a little beauty! Too cute. As for my two, they are just the same- very good, and very horrid. In fact, my amazon "1-2-3 Magic" child discipline book just arrived from amazon, and man, do I need it!

freckletree. said...

something that i always said about myself:

"i wear my soul on my face."

your dear bella.

Clueless_Mama said...

So I guess that is a look into my near future. Thanks:) She is too funny. I love it

JoeyRes said...

What pouting faces! I never think to photograph when the arms are crossed and the adorable face is all screwed up like that.

I've given you a loyal commenter award over at my blog. Stop by to check it out. I made it up!

Paula @ Organizing Tips For Moms said...

I love it! you gave me a great scrapbook page idea!

KK said...

Nothing wrong with that at all! So cute!

I figure that if the children are alive when my husband gets home at the end of the day, I've done my job.
