Driving home from school, Claire was talking to my dad on my cell phone.
Claire: "Yes, we wore our shirts last night (talking about the Penguin shirts)"
Claire: "No, my mom said 'No'!"
**without smiling or laughing at all, speaking totally nonchalantly**
Claire: "Well, she just said 'No' cause she didn't want me to get into a conversation at school explaining why boys like to pull themselves!!!!"
Mommy: LAUGING OUT LOUD!
And another Claire moment was also when she was talking to my dad one night, telling him all about her softball game.
Claire: "Guess what, I am playing first base now!"
MY Dad: "You know something, when I played baseball I was a first baseman too"
Claire: "THERE WAS BASEBALL BACK THEN?!?!"
My Dad: (Laughing hysterically) "Well, yeah girl, there was baseball back when I was a kid!"
**Laughter all around on that one**
