Finally, I like school!

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?
Claire:  No.
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.
