This morning I told Mama that I couldn't wait to go to school because I love it so much. She was waiting for that and was excited to hear it.
Today my president was Andrew Jackson. The way I remember it is that Mama says, "He's your friend and mine" and that helps me remember because Meredith's brother is named Andrew, too.
Mama: How was your day today?
Claire: Good. To me, when I say good, it can mean that some bad things and some good things could happen. I don't want you to write the bad part, but today there were good parts.
Mama: Were there any bad parts today?
Claire: No. Except for the part where kids said to not wear tattoos and I said that the teacher can tell me if I'm not supposed to wear them. She didn't, so I know it's okay.
Mama: What did you do today?
Claire: Sing the months of the year, go to music class, get a stamp at music...it was a music stamp. We sang the months of the year. Januaaaaaaaaaaaaaarrrrry, Februarrrrrrrrrrrrrry, March and April........
Mama: That's a good song. Did you sing anything else?
Claire: The days of the week. At music, we sang Head, Shoulders, Knees, and Toes, and That's What's New With Me, 1,2, and 3. That's a song about how you like your new teacher, your new sneakers, your new buddy, your new picture, your new book. Did you know in a couple of weeks we'll get our picture taken at the school?
Mama: Did you hear any stories today?
Claire: We heard the Kissing Pocket. It's next after the Kissing Hand. In part of that book, the big brother got a kissing hand the little brother got a kissing hand and the big brother said, don't give the little brother my kissing hand! That's about it.
Mama: Did you do any math today?
Claire: No, we did it yesterday, though. Can I try some Coke like Paul did at Ann-Marie's house?
Mama: No. Did you do any science?
Mama: Did you do any reading?
Claire: No, I didn't. We did a paper fill in the words that were lost.
Mama: Who were your friends today?
Claire: Leanna, Nitcia (She speaks Spanish!), That's about it. Lola wasn't there, but she was at lunch. The rest of the other people were. Is it joke time because that's about all I can remember.
Mama: Okay. Give me a joke.
Claire: Daddy ate Paul when he was a baby. That's it.
Mama: Were you on Green today?
Claire: Yes. Leanna was on yellow. Natalie Patterson was, and Diego was, and they missed five minutes of whatever fun thing we did. That's it now, Mama.
