Claire's First Day of Kindergarten

I just got home from my first day at Kindergarten.  My teacher is Mrs. Alvarez, and I was surprised to see her on crutches.  Mommy and Daddy didn't cry like I thought they would, but Mama had to leave earlier than I wanted her to and I was screaming and crying in my seat for about five minutes.  I thought they had really left the building, but really Mama and Daddy and Paul were waiting in the hallway and sending spies to check on me.

Here's my Q and A for the day:
Mama:  How was your first day?
Claire:  Sad but then I was happy.
Mama:  What were you sad about?
Claire:  That y'all left.
Mama:  What were you happy about?
Claire:  That the girl that said a baby is so cute and another girl was having fun and then I started having fun.
Mama:  What was your favorite part?
Claire:  Singing the months of the year to a new song, not like the one Mama taught me.
Mama:  Who are some of your new friends?
Claire:  There was a girl named Lucy, a girl called by a different name, but I called her Leah..
Paul:  Did you push her down?
Claire:  No!
Mama:  What did you learn about today?
Claire:  B and A. 
Mama:  What else?
Claire:  I liked that card you sent me.
Mama:  Was there anything you didn't like?
Claire:  No, except crying.
Mama:  Are you looking forward to tomorrow?
Claire:  Yes.
Mama:  Tell me a joke.
Claire:  Mantanna has eyes that stick up like ants.  Haha!  Chickens are chickens but they might eat your pinkie bone.

I want to say, Love, Claire
