Clare Giving Up “Being Mean” for Lent

   Over lunch, the kids were determining what they were going to give up for Lent.  Mary, chocolate.  Jake, ice cream.  Leigh, cake AND ice cream.
     Clare, however, suggested “beans from her tacos,” and other ridiculous things.  Anything I suggested she rejected.  A kid said something to her and Clare SNAPPED back.  I jokingly said, “Clare, why don’t you give up being mean for Lent?”
    She replied, “No WAY!”
    She loves it.  She’s not about to give up the little smarty pants tone of voice that she uses when particularly useful!!
