Cyclone

This is Cyclone.


Well, she's Clara. But while we have tried to give our other kids nicknames, this is the first one to really stick. And boy, is it apt.

I'm not sure if we were just lucky with Sam and Allison, but they didn't do a lot of the stereotypical kid things like drawing on themselves, taking off their clothes, and making messes just for fun. But Cyclone does all that, in addition to chasing the cats around and occasionally stepping on her baby brother.

On the flip side, she is exceptionally sweet. She won't stop kissing James, is always excited to greet me when I come home from work, and approaches everything with remarkable enthusiasm. She simultaneously makes me feel older and younger. I can't imagine life without our sweet little terror.

Sweet Little Terror sounds like another great nickname.
