Not Quite a Weekly Photo Challenge: Growth

Today I was all set to take a picture for the weekly photo challenge. The word was “growth” and I had packed up the three girls and the two dogs and schlepped out to some public land to go for a walk in the drizzle and take photos. I had ideas, I had plans, I did not have my camera.

So instead I’d like to share a few quotable Clara moments from the day:

Clara’s response to a new pair of jeans: “These impressive!”

Clara’s response to me asking what she was dumping out of a small purple bowl and into my wire garbage can in my bedroom: “My pee!”

Clara’s response to me asking why she peed in a small purple bowl in her playing room and then carried it into my bedroom to dump into a wire basket: “I just wanted to.”

Clara’s response to me suggesting that sitting down on the wet trail to take off her wet pants (and shoes) was not a good idea as it would get her underwear wet: “That OK I just be naked.”

The only other person we saw on the trails response to seeing us walking toward him and his dog: Taking a long detour around the trail into the tall wet grass.

If she’s not a growing challenge I don’t know what is!

    Clara is going to be a pro at peeing outside on the WWCWR trips and where ever else she may need to go. The other day I had to pee outside and sort of standing up and it just ran down my leg.

      That is true she is a peeing outside pro. I saw her pee standing up the other day as well, I think it helps not to be wearing any clothes, she was remarkably good at it, makes me think she’s been practicing!

    It is disappointing indeed not to have your camera when there is a gorgeous scene before you – but you did capture the most gorgeous of all. Clara is so precocious. 🙂 I just can imagine you trying to look stern when Clara dishes out her quotables to hide the laughter that is bubbling inside.
