Oh, Clara!




Clara, could you move Grandpa’s folder, please?

From the movie UP: Squirrel! Distraction

Oh, Gramma, I can't!

‘Cause if I do…then I’ll get distracted. And

Then I’ll start playing with it.

I will open it.

I’ll look at all Grandpa’s papers.

And then something will happen.

I will take all those papers

Out and play with them.

The papers will end up on the floor,

Under the sofa,

And then I will get in trouble.

Mama will send me to my room where I will

Look out my window

Crying.



Oh, then.  Leave Grandpa’s folder
Where it is.

    1. So many times I have arrived at their house and looked up to see clara in the window, crying. "Are you in trouble?" and she always answered yes.

  3. I hated being sent to my room, but I ended up there a lot. I thinks that's why I started writing.

    1. Come to think of it, I seldom was sent to my room. When I was young, maybe.

  4. That's proactive thinking at its finest. Sounds like you have a future leader on your hands there. :)

  5. Too, too familiar. And I really like Clara's ambitions. I would like to be a butterfly or a rainbow when I grow up too.

    1. For one with your imagination, your room could turn into anything you wanted.

    1. Were you an extremely well behaved girl? Excellent. Clara is impulsive. Her sister thinks through her actions.

  10. Clara must be the second born? We tend to act before we think. But we have a heckuva lot more fun before the "go to your room" part kicks in.

    1. Clara is the youngest, and 2nd born. Her sister is the "think ahead' girl, and Clara rushes ahead.

  11. I can totally relate. I'm like this now.
