Claudine: I love you more than 1000 kisses.
Me: Do you like me better than chocolate?
Claudine: Yes. I think you are great. You are also special. (pause) Just kidding. You’re not so special. Trophies and shiny sculptures are special.
Me: What do you think Mia would choose?
Mia: Do I have to spend my own money for a toy at target? No? Whew, cause I’m saving up all my money because me and Ella are going to buy a house together after college.
Claudine: Daddy, can I have you? I’m lonely.
Claudine: This is my imaginary sister, Anna.
Me: Why do you have an imaginery sister when you have a real one?
Claudine: I bought her.
Me: Where did you buy her?
Claudine: At a kids store.
Me: What’s a kid’s store?
Claudine: Where you buy kids. Imaginary. I just made it up.
Me: (Claudine shows me a drawing that she just made of Anna) She’s orange!
Claudine: That’s because I couldn’t do the peach. I couldn’t find it.
Me: Are you peach?
Me: Is mommy a peach?
Claudine: You’re peach white. Our family’s all peaches.
Mia: Can I have some of your wine?
Mark: No. Did you know adults can get arrested for giving wine to children because it’s against the law?
Mia: But I thought it was a free country.

And it went something like this:
Mia: “I’m writing in my diary right now and I don’t want anyone to read what I’m writing”.
Claudine walks over to the table where Mia’s writing in her diary and hovers.
Mia: “CLAUDINE! Go away! I don’t want you to read it!”.
Me (while washing dishes): “Uh, Claudine doesn’t know how to read yet. She doesn’t know what you’re writing”.
Mia: “But she knows how to read SOME words, like “I” and “Mia”.
Me: “Um, ok, but she’s not going to get any information just from those words out of context. But anyway, Claudine, you should give Mia her privacy.”
Claudine walks away, reluctantly.
Me: “What are you writing in there anyway?”
Mia: “Stuff. Private stuff. And I’m going to make sure no one reads my diary by switching up the key and locks so no one can open it”.
Me: “Ok, but you just told me how to open it. You don’t want mommy to read your diary either?”
Me: “Ok, guess it’s really private”.
I hear a little voice and I look down. Claudine appears out of NOWHERE and is suddenly standing next to me. She cups her hands around her mouth and whispers again, “Do it.”
Me: “Huh? Do what?”
Claudine (points in Mia’s direction behind her other hand so Mia can’t see):
“Read. The. Diary.”
