Day 28 Woodrow Wilson

Sorry I've been out of the blogsosphere lately.  I was cranky yesterday.

Today was career day.  We learned about fire department and how to not waste water.  If you have a baby or a little brother like a three year old, you should not leave the medicine on the table because if they eat it it could turn it into poison.  Poison ivy.

You should brush your teeth three times a day.  Midnight, noon and morning. 

We got stickers to put on the phone about  poison.

I got in trouble at the end of the day because we were walking to the door and I stepped on a piece of bread.  Not from Mrs. Alvarez.  She wasn't mad at me.

There was a dog.  You have to read books to learn how to train a dog. 

There was music therapy.  That dog said sit and walk with me.  Where Sugar Dot crashes into me, I almost fall over.  You have to walk your dog on the left side of your body.  Now, can it be joke time?

Sugar Dot is really named SW.  That's the joke.  It's really SD.

One more.  Sugar Dots are Sugar Dots, not SDs.

Teddy Roosevelt Day

I know the Conga song.

I hate this skirt.  It's embarrassing because I can't zip it up.  I have to wear it though because Mrs. Terry said I looked cute in it.  Did you do laundry?  I really wish you would do laundry.

I'm hungry.  I wish we could go to McDonald's.

I don't like this skirt.  I don't want to do my blog.  It's not fun.  Well, it's fun but I don't want to do it today. 

Paul, don't be rude to me!

(Apparently Claire is in a bad mood.)

Day 25 William McKinley

Yesterday I didn't blog because we went to the consignment sale, Just Between Friends.  I got a bunch of new fancy clothes to wear to church.  Paul got a cowboy outfit and I got a Nemo.  I love my Nemo.

I want to say that I had fun today at school.

I went to  music today.  I forgot what we sang.

Today Lola was back and I sat by her at lunch.  Bailey had to go to the doctor because she got late in the middle of specials.  She had a stick in her ear.  I heard something about a stick in her ear.

I was on green today.  One boy was on the floor.  His clothespin was on the floor.

Joke time!  Poopoo You Stink!

Day 23 Benjamin Harrison---I was on YELLOW!

Paul is singing, "Who Let the Loose Dogs Out?".

Today's president is Benjamin Harrison.  Daddy says he was the grandson of William Henry Harrison, the guy who died in a month.

We all had to move our clothespins.  I was on yellow and "Betsy" and one of my friends was on red.  I was on yellow because we were talking too much when Mrs. Booth was in the room helping Mrs. Alvarez.  Everyone got on yellow.  No one was on green.

I was the one that wasn't talking a lot but Mrs. Alvarez thought I was, but I had to go move my clothespin and I thought okay.  I was the only one not talking, but I was talking loud.  We missed minutes of recess.  We sat quietly in the shade by the school outside during recess.  Mrs. Alvarez wasn't mad, but she was upset that we had to move our clothespin.

On Monday, I'll try to be good so I can stay on green.

I knew I was being too loud.  I didn't talk as much as all the other kids, but I was talking a little bit and I did it too loud.  I moved my clothespin.  I'm going to try to be good.  I was talking to myself.  Lola wasn't there.  I was talking to Bailey, but not much.

We went outside.  I tried to fix it by trying to listen the rest of the day.  I was listening until that point.

It felt like I don't know.  It just appears to be that way.  I wasn't sad because Mrs. Alvarez said if you move your clothespin or I tell you something to do, don't get upset; I don't want to see one tear come from your eye.  She said you're not supposed to have a tear so I didn't cry.

Hopscotch, Daring Daffy Doutchy Dot.  That's my joke.

Day 22 Grover Cleveland

In my lunchbox today, Mama put a picture of Grover Cleveland and Grover from Sesame Street.  That was silly.

Today was picture day.  I wore a bow, but it was a big problem and kept falling out.  Pictures were in the auditorium.  I got to go on stage.

At recess my shoe fell off and a friend in Mrs. Terry's class had to help me and I had stickers on my sock.  I had all sorts of problems because I was running and even Ivan had to put the bow back in my hair.  Ivan didn't do it as good.  We were running in the grass and my shoe fell off.  When I sat down there were stickers and a girl in Mrs. Terry's class had to help me put my shoe on and get the ouchies off my foot.  I was like, "Thank you!"

Did you notice we didn't do math today?

Can it be joke time?

I love polar bears.  I was supposed to say brown bear.  That's my joke.

Day 21 Chester Arthur

Did you know we were learning how to be a big kid today?  Usually we get our library books off the table, but today we learned how to get books off the Booky Looky Cart.  We also had some things that were like measuring sticks but they don't measure and they are called shelf markers.  Today was my first day to look at books on the shelf.

Did you know some kids don't know how to say English?  One kid goes to a speech teacher to learn how to say words in English.

We don't know much about Chester Arthur.

Did you know if Mrs. Barton the PreK teacher sees the book order you will get some change? 

Nothing was funny today.  What was fun was going on the playground and going to PE.  That's it.

I did stations.  There wasn't a station stick.  I went to the listening center and heard a Diego story about Baby Jaguar jumping.

Alanii was still pinching my hiney a little bit in the hallway.  She almost came in the same little bathroom in with me that has the door that you lock.  She didn't come in, she was just acting up in the potty and playing with the sink and stuff.  You know how that is.

It was during specials when we were walking with Ms. Reed.  If she's behind me, when my hands are locked behind my back and they are on my hiney and then she copied me and pinched my hiney.  We were in the hall so I just looked behind me and whispered no.  She stopped.  I didn't know she could hear me but my lips were moving and she could tell what I was saying. 

Here's a joke:  Rarrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr!

Tuesday, September 20, 2011

No blog today

I'm not feeling like writing a blog today because it's Baby Doll's birthday and Paul and I are busy planning the party.

We can do it tomorrow.

Day 19 Rutherford B. Hayes needs to Behave

Today was the 19th day of school.  The president of the day is Rutherford B. Hayes.  I think he should learn how to behave.

We started stations.  That's what the Johnny Appleseed paper was from.  I went to Station 4 and Station on the floor because we were going in rounds.  The hot pink group went to the hot pink table.  I made a monster.  I love the monster so much.  This says M-m Monster.  Right?

Marbles, monkey, moon, match, mop, mixer, milk, and mushroom.  Those start with M.

We went to PE.  Do you know how it rotates?  We go PE, PE, PE, Music, Music, Music, Art, Art, Art.  It keeps rotating like I said it.

We played bowling balls.  I always win.  I do the best, but I do good but nobody wins because they cry because they didn't win.  Fatima in Mr. Gooch's class cried, so Mrs. Hyde went and got her big sister from recess.  She had to be at PE instead of at recess.  I'm like, "That's sad.  She needs to be outside having fun."

We always do math.  We learned the words above and below.  We had little tiles that we put on the paper.  The blue tiles were above and the red tiles were below.

I sat with Elaine at lunch and it kind of rotated. The air conditioner wasn't as cold. 

Joke time:  Johnny Appleseed wore a house on his head instead of a pot.  Isn't that a joke?

I'm going to marry Paul or Ivan

Yesterday I told my mom about this, but we had already finished my blog, so here's something extra for yesterday's post.  I am going to marry Paul (my brother) or Ivan. 

Mama:  Is Ivan a nice boy?
Claire:  Yesssssss.
Mama:  Is he always on green?
Claire:  Umm, yes.  At P.E. he always hands me the ball instead of dropping it on the floor.  I want to marry Ivan because he's nice.  That's all.  Are you really writing on my blog?
Mama:  Yes, we must document this!

Day 18 Ulysses S. Grant

Today I skinned my knee on the playground and I got a bandaid from Mrs. Alvarez.  She calls it a "Mrs. Alvarez kiss" bandaid.  It made me feel better.

Mama:  What did you do that was fun today?
Claire:  Play recess.
Mama:  What did you learn today?
Claire:  I learned about how you cooperate in a community like buying food for others when they are sick.
Mama:  What did you do in art today?
Claire:  Worked on our other papers.  We drew some stuff on our paper.  We practiced stations.  We did 1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,10.  Eight will be Starfall and nine will be Tumblebooks.
Alani had to sit on a poly spot and Dylan had to sit on one.  No hiney pinching.  She just couldn't behave.  Joke time!
Uno baby tack.
Mama:  Uno baby tack?
Claire:  Yes, that's it.

Day 17 Andrew Johnson

I am very excited today because I got a Scholastic Book order form and I want to order a lot of books.  In fact, right now Mama is trying to talk to me but I am just listing off the 1,000 books I want to buy.

Mama:  How was your day today?
Claire:  Good.  Smurf books!  I went to recess and that's always going to be the funnest part.
Mama:  Did you have any more problems with that girl today?
Claire:  When she was in Mrs. Terry's room she was pulling on my hand sanitizer to tell me not to go.  Mrs. Alvarez now has little circles that you sit alone on and she throws them and you sit on different places in the room.  She had a red one.  I forgot the name.  That's for kids that don't listen.  Loni sat on one.  That is what she likes me calling her.  They have space books.  See?
Mama:  What did you do in math today?
Claire:  Shape math.  Go verbs are the only words.
Mama:  What's a verb?
Claire:  It's something that I'm learning.
Mama:  Is it an action word?
Claire:  It's the best word and an action word.  If you were in Mrs. Alvarez's class you would know what it is.  The Kissing Hand.  Can we order that?  Splat the Cat!
Mama:  What stories did you hear today?
Claire:  No stories.
Mama:  What songs did you sing?
Claire:  There are seven days...Sunday Monday Tuesday Wednesday Thursday Friday Saturday January February March April May June July August September October November December. That's the song you taught me!  Is it joke time?
Mama:  Sure
Claire:  A chicken ate your glasses!  Alani touched your eye.  Paul touched your eye.  That's it.

Day 16 A Pretend Lincoln and new artwork

Today was my 16th day of school.  The president of the day was Abraham Lincoln, but it's only in the last year I've been able to pronounce his name.  Daddy taught me about him a long time ago when he started giving me pennies, but I used to call him "A Pretend Lincoln."  Now I know better.

It was too hot to go outside, so we went to recess before lunch. 

Mama:  Was anything funny today?
Claire:  Me and Alani in the bathroom giggle a lot because Alani is so funny I can't take it and I have to keep giggling.  When nothing is funny I can stop, but Alani is funny and I can't stop giggling.  Mrs. Alvarez keeps saying stop giggling but I can't stop giggling when I'm with her.
Mama: Did anything bother you today?
Claire:  No, except Alani in line to art, she was pinching my hiney.  The art teacher was with us.  I told her to stop but I decided not to do it because the rule is no talking in the hall.  I promise I'll try to remember to tell Mrs. Alvarez tomorrow.  She did that a couple of days ago too.  She kept pinching my hiney.
Mama:  She is not allowed to do that.  You need to tell the teacher.
Claire:  When I'm behind her, she always puts her hands back and they are long enough to get back to my hiney.  I keep telling her to stop.  The rule is to take care of yourself, not other children.
Mama:  What did you like best today?
Claire:  Everything.  In art we drew dinosaurs.  What you do is put four fingers on a paper and trace your four fingers and then you do it again to make eight legs and then you turn it over and make a loop and you do a v for a mouth and it's sideways and put an eye by the v and then you put triangles on the top and then you put a loop at the back of it for the tail. 
Dear Jesus who loves us, help us we Jesus to be your good Jesue and live the right Jesus.  That's funny.  Now come here so I can show you how to draw a dinosaur.
This is a picture of Sept. 11.  The foolish man that told the guys to fly the planes is on the left.  Then there's a spaceship and a plane that flew into the building.  Then there's an American flag.  Do you think this will cheer everyone up?

This is a dinosaur.  Doesn't that really look like one?

I lost a tooth!

Yesterday we went to Central Market and Mama and Daddy bought me an apple. I told Mama that my tooth felt funny and then she noticed it was bleeding. Daddy put his finger in my mouth and it fell right out. In this first picture, I didn't even know the tooth had come out yet.

I was so excited! Now I have a hole in my mouth. Mama said that my teacher might not recognize me today because I look so different, but I think she was just being silly. The tooth fairy brought me $3, but she also took my tooth, which I didn't understand because Lola says that the tooth fairy left her tooth there.

Today was my 15th day of school. Today's president was James Buchanan. Daddy says that he was the only president that never got married.

Knock know, who's there? That's called a knock knock joke. Don't write that.

Mama: How was your day today?
Claire: Good. We went to recess before the library. We played on the regular playground.
Mama: Did the librarian tell you anything today?
Claire: Yeah, she got the sock card that I made her. She told me that Paul killed a bug for her. She didn't say that you helped her because I already knew you did.
Mama: What Mrs. Alvarez read today?
Claire: Mrs. Bindergarten Takes Kindergarten on a Field Trip. She said we would go on a couple field trips today but we didn't go anywhere.
Mama: Maybe she meant this year you will go on field trips. Did anything make you laugh today?
Claire: I already said that. We went to recess before the library.
Mama: Did anything make you mad today?
Claire: No. You shouldn't say that because usually nothing bad happens to me.
Mama: What did you do in math?
Claire: This time we were going to do something different. Mrs. Glazener taught a lesson and we did it again and I played on the computer then and I wore earmuffs only you could hear in them.
Joke time: This girl looks like Dr. Phillips. That's it.

Day 14-Mrs. A's scooter got stuck

Did you know on the first day of recess Mrs. Alvarez's scooter got stuck in the dirt and boys had to push her out and it worked?

Did you know Mrs. Alvarez moved us today so we could learn the best best best?

Lola likes saving her lunch and I tell her, "Lola, you are going to be super hungry."  She saves her grapes and her sandwich, but all she eats is a banana.  That won't fill her up, but Lola is Lola.  That's her choice.

There will always be recess.  We still played at the ninja park and the monkey bars.  If we go to the net thing, the Bill 100, we will get in trouble.  That thing that has orange poles that you climb up on the rope?  It's metal poles that look like rope. 

We went to P.E.  In P.E. we played Ghostbusters.  We had green ghosts and the people climbed under the people that got frozen that got rings.  Zachary went there.  He has a little bandaid thing around his hand.

I had lunch.  Every time I sit with Lola and I'm like Lola, I'm getting tired of sitting next to you and I thought about it and she's my best friend and so she can sit next to me.

We didn't do math today.  We had too much time cutting out and glue on our science journal.  It was for our science journal to put on front of it.  Mrs. Alvarez put Sid the Science kid on her journal.  We didn't write in our spirals or our science journal.  Most of the stuff we usually do we didn't do today.

I went to the library.  I got a new book.  I didn't really want the Superman one.  I wanted a doggie book and that's the only doggie one they have.

Plus, yesterday we went to the library and the teacher said if everyone brings back their book they get a sticker.  We had two people that didn't bring their books back so we didn't get anything.

At the playground Alani was giggling so much and Mrs. Alvarez said to stop, but Alani is so funny that I can't stop laughing.  We couldn't stop laughing because everything she does is so funny.  We were playing with Alani and making her go to jail pretend. 

Here's my joke:  A cheeto could eat a penguin's beak.  Googoohead.

Day 13 Millard Fillmore better

Today was the 13th day of school.  Millard Fillmore was the 13th president, and we remember that by remembering that Zachary Taylor was sick, so Millard Fillmore better.

Claire: I love you so much, Mama.  I love you more than Mrs. Alvarez.
Mama:  I'm so glad.  What happened that was fun today?
Claire:  I have no idea.  The question is out of my head now.  I liked going to art.  We drew a picture of our family at the zoo.  The animals that I drew on my table was elephant, giraffe, and bear.  I also colored a duck, which wasn't on my table, and a flamingo.  That's it.  I drawed and alligator.  That's all I can remember.  Why don't I get to take home my art?  I don't know why.
Paul:  Excuse me, excuse me.
Mama:  How was Lola today?
Claire:  She was good.  She said if I did what she did on recess I could play with her every single day, but if I don't do it, then I couldn't play with her.  I decided to do what she did because I love her.  Leanna was absent.  She's moving to a new school.
Mama:  Was Lola doing something fun?
Claire:  Yes.  We're going to have a cookie thing and the quietest person tomorrow will earn a cookie.  I hope I earn a cookie.
Mama:  You know you don't have to do what Lola does if you don't want to.
Claire:  I know, but I wanted to still be her friend, so I did what she did.  It wasn't something bad.  It was going down the pole at the jungle gym.  I sitted down and put one hand here and one hand here and twisted my feet around the blue pole of the jungle gym and I twisted down and when I got to the bottom of the ground I let go of the pole.  I kind of hit my chin, but it didn't hurt.
Mama:  You don't have to do what Lola wants.  You do what Claire wants.
Claire:  I heard in a cooperating movie you listen to others and do what others want to do and that's cooperation.  It was possible that she wouldn't be my friend if I didn't do what she wanted to do.  It ended up being fun so I did it.  I was cooperating.
Mama:  What else happened today?
Claire:  We did math and Mrs. Glazener wasn't there again.  That's weird of Mrs. Glazener.  We did shape math still.  We always do shape math.  Don't worry about math because we'll always be doing shape math.
Mama:  What did you read today?
Claire:  Nothing.  Mrs. Alvarez read My Teddy to us.  It was about a big teddy bear that had another little boy's teddy bear and the little boy hided behind the big bear and the big bear stomped.  The boy dropped his bear and the big bear said, "Little Boy!"  and the little bear said, "Help!" in the dark woods.
Mama:  What bothered you today?
Claire:  I sat down on the rug and Dameon disturbed me.  In the line, Alani kept bumping me with  her hiney.  Is it joke time?
Mama:  Yes.
Claire:  Socks get flushed and Sugar Dot's throat.

Zachary Taylor Pooped himself to death

A little known fact is that Zachary Taylor, the 12th president, died of gastroentritis, which my daddy says is the same thing as saying he pooped himself to death.  Paul and I love to talk about Zachary Taylor.

Yesterday and today Mr. Smith has not been loud.  I was thinking he had been calm and he's hyper when he yells.  Yelling is hyper.  We were calm.  We were quieter than the fifth graders and Mr. Smith was outside and he could barely hear us.  We clapped.

We went to recess two times.  I went first and then a couple hours later we went to PE and we didn't do anything.  Another teacher, not Mrs. Hyde was there and we didn't do anything, we just had recess.

We learned about jobs today.  All jobs.  I learned about jobs about business of jobs like the tooth hospital, the hospital, and that's all I can remember.

Mama:  Did anything happen funny today?
Claire:  No.  The funniest thing was go to recess two times.  I already said that.
Mama:  Did you hear any new books?
Claire:  Yes.  Library Manners.  It was non-fiction. 
Mama:  Who did you sit next to at lunch?
Claire:  Lola sat next to me, but I got kind of tired of her sitting next to me every day and she keeps following me so I told her, "Lola, I'm getting kind of tired of you sitting next to me every day back to back to back to back."  I didn't say that.  I didn't say anything, just decided that she loves me and I love her and I'll stop having that business in my head.
Mama:  What did you in math?
Claire:  Mrs. Glazener wasn't there.  That's kind of funny.  I did shape math.
Mama:  Did you like your lunch?
Claire:  Yes.
Mama:  Tell me a joke.
Claire:  Lola lalalalalalala Penguin.

#11 James K. Polk-You

Guess what?  I got to have recess today!  And Joey and another boy had their clothespin on the floor.  No throwing woodchips and when you hear the whistle it's time to go inside.  If your pin is on the floor you get no recess.  Camorrion and Jobey were throwing woodchips and it got in their hair.  Camorrion didn't have to have his clothespin on the floor, so that was good, but Jobey and another boy had to have his clothespin on the floor and that's not good.  But tomorrow they get to have their clothespin back on green.  Write that.

At recess we only played on the Ninja park (That's what she calls one of the playgrounds) and the monkey bars across from the monkey bars.  I played with Amy who is in Mr. Gooch's class. 

Mama:  What did you like best today?
Claire:  Going to recess because we had never had it before.
Mama:  Did you read any new books today?
Claire:  We read Octopotamus Lost.  It's about a platypotamus that got lost but the girl kept finding her.
Mama:  What did you do in Math?
Claire:  The math teacher is Mrs. Glazener.  She doesn't teach us, she just helps up if Mrs. Alvarez does it wrong.  She mostly just helps Diego.  We did shape math, and I already know the shapes.  Actually, how to sort math is what we did. 
Mama:  Did you write anything today?
Claire:  No.  We didn't write in our journals today because Mrs. Alvarez forgot.  She told us. 
Mama:  What did you do in art?
Claire:  Just draw a picture of ourself at the park with our family and on the back, draw our pets.  If you don't have them, you could wish a pet.  Mrs. Reid had frogs, two cats, and that's it.  I was going to say, "My mom holded frogs when she was a baby, but then I said, no potty talk."
You know what?  Damien said when he was in a different state, and she was like "Waa!  I don't want to hear what you did in whatever state that was."
Mama:  What else did Mrs. Alvarez talk about?
Claire:  I forgot. 
Mama:  What did you talk about at lunch today?
Claire:  I forgot.  I sat by Lola and Lucy has not been there for the first day.  She has been there the two first days but the eleventh day she has not been here.  I loved her and I wanted her to be there, but she disappeared. 
Mama:  How's your tooth?
Claire:  Soo, super loose.  It will go this far out.  I think it's about to fall out.  I wanted it to fall out, but you have to be patient.  That's what you say.
Mama:  Was there anything hard for you today?
Claire:  No.
Mama:  Tell me a joke.
Claire:  Did James K. Polk write me a note today?  The 11th president?  That's it. That was a joke.  You really did that, Mama.

I found something in my mouth.......

So I was sitting in the bathroom today and I felt something in my mouth.  I thought, "Hmmmm. This feels like it might be a loose tooth."  And guess what?  It was!  It's going to fall out any second.

Today was day 10 of school; John Tyler.  We like to say that he's friends with Uncle Gilbert, because Uncle Gilbert lives close to Tyler.

I don't want Mama to give me yogurt or that twist applesauce again because it took me the whole lunch time to get them open.

Did you know I had a loose tooth at school and when it was lunchtime I was afraid I was going to swallow it but I didn't?  When I ate my sandwich I was afraid I was going to swallow my tooth.

Mama:  What did you do that was fun today?
Claire:  We went to the library to get a new book.  Every day I can get a new book.  I did not go to music today; I went to PE apparently.  That was weird to me.  A lot of classes were at PE.  Mrs. Price was there, the music teacher. 

Paul:  When I was in kindergarten, I had a teacher named Mrs. Pencil and I had a loose tooth but it was really a rock in my mouth.

Mama:  What did you like best today?
Claire:  Going to the library and going to the program about froggies.  (something about her new fundraiser.)

Mama:  What did you talk with your friends about today?
Claire:  About how will I not go to school on Monday.  I thought only when you were six or seven you would lose teeth.  I didn't know I would lose them when I was five!  Hold on.  I have to give Sugar Dot a round of applause because he went potty.  Joke time!

Lizards are lizards that can eat your hand.  Lizards can eat your hand.  That's it.  Is it funny?

Thursday, September 1, 2011


Today is day 9 of school, which means William Henry Harrison day.  Mama looked up some better questions on the internet for me, because she says that it's hard to get information from me.
Mama:  What did you do that was fun today?
Claire:  Go to the library.  I just checked out a book, that's all I could do.  Other kids were playing with the computers, but I wasn't allowed to.  Do you know why?  I just saw big kids playing on it, so I think it was only for big kids.
Mama:  Did anything funny happen today?
Claire:  It was Bailey's birthday and it was also Dameon's and he has a lot of years and he was inviting me, too.  It was Bailey's birthday today and in a couple of months it will be Dameon's.  I like Bailey because she will let me come to her birthday.  I said Bailey, I hope my brother can come and she said, "yeah, he can come."  I said thank you because if it was just a girl party Paul will be upset.
Mama:  What did you like best today?
Claire:  Going to the library.  If you were me, wouldn't that be your best part?
Mama:  What assignments did you do today?
Claire:  We did some work with our papers, I guess. 
Mama:  What did Mrs. A. talk about today?
Claire:  We did Math and Mrs. Glazener is the math teacher.  She's the math teacher.  She just comes in and makes sure kids are doing the right thing for math.
Mama:  Were you doing the right thing?
Claire:  Mmmhmm.
Mama:  Who were your friends today?
Claire:  Bailey because she's the birthday girl.  Every time it was her turn I would say, "Birthday Girl!"  Mrs. A said, "Why do you keep saying that?"  I said, "Because I'm telling her happy birthday!"
Mama:  Did anyone get on your nerves today?
Claire:  No, but somebody bothered Lola.  She was at her spot and she had to move.
Mama:  What color were you on?
Claire:  Green.  I have some people on yellow but it wasn't me.  Some people were on red and one person was on red I thought, and then I'm like "Oh, you have to move your clothespin to the floor."  I didn't say that but I thought it.  If you are on green you get to do everything fun.  If you're on the floor, you miss everything fun we are doing.
Mama:  Was there anything hard to do today?
Claire:  It was hard to cooperate with others.  We had to think about how you co-op-er-ate on a little movie and we had to talk about cooperation.  That's about it.  Can it be joke time?
Mama:  Yes.
Claire:  Sugar Dot ate whatever he could find for Mrs. Alvarez.  Sugar Dot made Mrs. Alvarez a cookie.
