Clara what’s your favorite…
Color – Blue
Animal – “Like bees? Are you going to ask me about bugs? … Yeah? Then cats are my favorite animal.”
Bug- Bees!!! (Who would have guess it?)
Food – Pizza
Clothes – “I don’t really know, fancy clothes?” Me: “Are they your favorite?” Clara: “No, Lola’s.” (Much discussion followed and I discovered that Lola’s fancy clothes are Clara’s favorite clothes to wear.)
Dog – Trip and Rosie
Cat – “It used to be Fiona but now it’s Gypsy.” (Poor Fiona has been gone for just over a year now.)
Person – You and Dad
Thing to do – Play at the waterpark when I go to Wisconsin Dells with Lola. ( You might not know this yet, but everything eventually comes back to her best friend Lola. Everything.)
Thing to do inside – Play with cats.
Chore – Baby ducks and baby geese. Me: “How come.” Clara: “That they are fuzzy.” (Can’t argue, fuzzy baby birds are the best.)
Time of day – The afternoon. Me: “How come?” Clara: “Because you don’t have to do chores and you don’t have to eat dinner.” Me: “You don’t like eating dinner?” Clara: “Yeah, it’s weird I like lunch more cause I usually have tiny lunches.” (It’s good she has a reason… right?)
Place to go – Wisconsin Dells with Lola.
Song – My songs know what you did in the dark – Fall Out Boys
Flower – I don’t know. But my least favorite kind of flower is thistles. (And see there is an answer to a question I never even thought to ask!)
Farm Animal – Horses. Or bunnies. Do you know what my favorite kind of horse is? Me: “No.” Clara: “The kind that, um, um, I might have… One of these, I don’t remember what kind I think it’s a tinker.” (So the question is, Clara, do you know your favorite kind of horse?)
Thing about school – You don’t have to do chores.
Friend – Lola (Surprise!)
Movie – Bernstein Bears (that’s a movie?) but at school my favorite video is Olivia.
Thing to do with Ivy – Play fairy gardens.
Thing to do with Jane – Play dress up.
Thing to do with Dad – Help him coil up the rope. (Old wire fence, fun right? Right…)
Thing to do with Me – Gardening
Book – Bees. The one where you can see the mite close up on a bee. (Because she knows her bees and her bee parasites!)
Meal – Dinner (Wait, I thought diner was weird?)
Thing to do in the car – Color
What do you want to do when you grown up? You know… be a bee keeper! (It’s true, I did know.)

Favorite kind of apple – Golden Delicious
“Oh for flowers I remembered what it was. Petunia. NO apple blossom.”
(Good thing I asked!)
