While Mom was away taking care of Granddad, Clarice made a card for her Dad, who took care of her. The card says, "My Dad is special (speshl) because (beecuz)... he loves me!" Kelly's mom, Jennifer, gave Clarice this book and now Clarice can read it all by herself -- except she says "Callepitters" instead of "Caterpillars." Clarice is excited about Danny & Rhonda's baby (we don't know if they will have boy or girl, so Clarice drew both in the crib). Clarice hopes the baby will born on her birthday, Dec. 11. Maybe Santa will help with that request?
