A Short Play
3 - year -old
Mother - not telling her age
6-y.-o.: Mommy, I ran out of thread in this. (hold up empty bobbin) Can you give me more?
Mother: No. We're leaving for the library in a few minutes. I thought you wanted to go and meet the alligator. Could you please put that back?
6-y.o.: Oh yeah! I forgot. (run upstairs to put the bobbin back & to turn off the sewing machine)
Five Minutes Later
Mother: (standing at the bottom of the staircase) Girls, we're going to leave. Are you still coming?
3.-y.-o.: (standing on the stair landing) It's not working. It's not working. (saying it through gritted teeth by the end)
Mother: What's not working?
6.-y.-.: (appears next to her sister) Oh. I made my sister a yo-yo.
