Clara’s Favorites at Four Years Old

Clara what’s your favorite…Clara

Color – Blue ( We started out so succinct and normal…)

Animal – Clara: “Neeeighhh! I gave you a hint!” Me: “Horse? ” Clara: “And one more…” Me:  “Unicorn?” Clara: “Yes, and one more… WHOOP!” Me: ” A monkey?” Clara: “Yeah!” (….And there’s the Clara I know and love!)

Food-  hot dogs and brats

Clothes- “Fancy dresses and fancy pants AND fancy headbands.”

Dog- Digby

Cat- Momma cat, Cassie and Gypsy

Person- “Mom you don’t know? IT’S YOU!”

Friend- “Lola and Liberty”

Thing to do – “Go to Lola’s house.”

Thing to do outside-  “Swing on my favorite part of the rope swing, I always think I’m going to marry it. I have dreams of marrying a real rope swing!”

Chore- “Get the eggs!”

Time of day- Afternoon

Place to go- “Monkey Joe’s, zoo’s, aquariums and two more things… Going to Grandma Pats and going to Grandma Mary’s house and Lolas house and NeNe’s house… That’s all.” (Possibly we should have had a discussion of the meaning of the word favorite.”

Song – Wave Over Wave (Yeah, I don’t believe it. She never wants to hear this song and yells when she has to listen to it.)

Flower – “All the flowers in the wide world! … Don’t say wide world.” (So, I guess just “All the flowers.” then?)

Farm Animal –horse, goats and bunnies

Movie –Dora’s Easter Egg Hunt, Strawberry Shortcake (Are these even movies?)

Thing to do with Ivy – “I don’t like doing stuff with Ivy…But I play with her when you ask me to play with her.” (Then she looked at me and said, “Is Ivy going to read this!?” I told her no and she let her answer stand.)

Thing to do with Jane –Playing Darling and Mama. (My least favorite game, the one that involves fake crying, is, sadly, still her favorite.)

Thing to do with Dad – “Go to the bakery and story time and…” (She must have been running out of steam because she never made it any further on that one.)

Thing to do with Me – “Plant flowers and you push me on the rope swing.”

Book – “The Girl that doesn’t share her toys.” (Never heard of it.)

Meal- Breakfast and Dinner

Thing to do in the car –” HONK — PUURRRR!!!” (What this means is that what she likes to do is pretend snore at the top of her lungs. This cracks me up and drives Ivy crazy- which likely explains why she does it.)

What do you want to do when you grown up? “A grape picker that sells grapes… AND selling goats.” (Grapes?)

Anything else? – “Nope.” (Amazing!)Clara and Digby

    Adorable and funny! Thanks for sharing this list.

    Such fun!

  3. Rusha Sams says:

    What a great idea! I wish I had catalogued my granddaughter’s likes at each year. What fun this would be for future reflection. Thanks for the great idea — never too late to start, I guess.

    • Jessie says:

      That’s right, never too late to start, I even suspect if I kept a list as an adult it would be interesting to see how things change. The answers might not be so funny, but still interesting. 🙂

  4. Becky says:

    I love this – love her answers too! What a great idea! I think I might try it with my grandkids 🙂 I ask them questions like this all the time, but I have never thought to write them down. Hope you don’t mind if I “steal” your idea 🙂
    Once again, thanks for sharing your beautiful family with us. Can’t wait to hear from the other two 🙂

  5. Imelda says:

    What a hoot! She is hilarious. 🙂 She will absolutely treasure this compilation you have of her favorites.

    • Jessie says:

      I hope so, either that or she’ll be mad, because not only did I not say “wide world” but it’s possible that someday in the future Ivy might read it! 🙂

  6. Corky says:
