Mommy: This milk expires on my birthday.
Clara: You should have a party!
Mommy: What kind of party should I have?
Clara: (looks around and sees that I’m holding a mug of hot chai) A COFFEE PARTY!!
Clara: You know what, dad?
Clara: I think if you put earwax in your smoothie it would taste yucky.
Clara: Mommy, let’s play hide and seek! I can hide under my bed! You’ll never find me under my bed!
Daddy: You know what happens next month? Mommy’s birthday.
Clara: Yay! I can get her something special. Like Olaf! I think she would like an Olaf!
Daddy: And then in April your little brother comes.
Clara: Yay! I’m so happy! This day is so special!
Daddy: And the next month after that is Clara’s birthday!
Clara: Yay! And do you think I’ll get something special? But I already have so many special things. I have Melinda and Baby Barnacle and my legos. What am I going to do with so many special things?
- M&Ms = Em Em Ems
- wolves = woofs
- squirt = squit (rhymes with quit)
- guacamole = brocamole
Psst- Check out dozens of other conversations with Clara here.
Clara’s quite the storyteller these days, and she loves when I record her tales so she can watch them back. Here are a few that I captured a few weeks ago for her.
- how they always start in a kingdom with a princess name (like “there once was a Kingdom named Jasmine”)
- how they frequently include skeletons
- how she thumbs through one of my books (as opposed to hers) while telling the story
- how she rests her face on her hand in the middle of that second video
Oh man, she cracks me up.
