I Want To Live In A New House

Location: In The Car

*Felicia is driving, Aylen and Senia are in the back seat*
*Felicia starts reprimanding Senia for her behavior during art class*
Senia: "I don't think I want to live with you anymore.  I want to live in a new house.  With a new mommy.  To take me to a different art camp." 
*Felicia slows down and starts pulling next to a house*
Felicia: "Alright.  That is a marvelous idea.  Let's pull over there.  And you can move in with those people in that house and we will see if they want a little girl."
*Senia stars crying, becomes hysterical with tears*
Felicia: "See?  You don't want to live somewhere else with a different mommy.  You love me."
Senia: "No!  I don't want to live in a one-story house.  I want to live in a big one.  Like that one!"

You Don't Have To Ask Me Twice

Location: Home

*Felicia starts trying to wake up Aylen*
Felicia [to Aylen]: "Aylen, it is time to wake up now." 
Felicia: "Did you have fun hanging out with your Dad last night?"
Felicia: "Aylen, did you have fun hanging out with your Dad last night?"
Aylen: "Yes.  Yes."
Felicia: "Good.  Now, go to the bathroom.  I set your clothes by the sink, so you can go ahead and start getting dressed."
Aylen: "You asked me about hanging out with Dad yesterday."
Felicia: "I just like hearing you had a good time." 
Aylen: "You don't have to ask me twice."
Felicia: "Alright."
Aylen: "What did you just ask me to do now?"
