I know this is probably one of the greatest clichés that can only come from a parent. However I am truly one the luckiest Dad's in the world! Claire has an extraordinary sense of humour (with great timing) for her age (10). I must write down some of the lines she comes out with, things I would not have even dreamt of saying at that age.
She is very happy 99% of the time. Always active, always friendly. Arguably too grown up for her age.
To see her playing away, usually singing quietly to herself is one of life's greatest pleasures for me.
