Prologue: The Reads House
(D.W. Scoops up her initials in alphabet soup, which then fall down)
David: Take smaller spoonfuls, D.W., and sit up straighter please.
(D.W. slurps her soup)
David: And try not to slurp
D.W. It's not fair! Kate doesn't have to do any of that stuff!
David: She's a baby, you're growing up and as you get older, you have more responsibilities
D.W. I hate growing up!
(An ice cream truck jingles)
Arthur: The ice cream truck! Dad, can i go get something down at the park?
D.W. Oh can i go too?
David: Without a grownup?
D.W. Please? I'll be extra careful.
D.W. And i finished all my soup.
David: All right, you're big enough, just hold Arthur's hand when you cross the street.
D.W. Cool! i love growing up!
(Baby Kate and Pal laugh while rolling)
Kate: This time, you be Goldilocks and I'll be the dinosaur.
Pal: A capital idea! Incidentally, i wanted to mention that (Barking), a probable scenario?
Kate: What did you just say? I couldn't understand anything!
Pal: Oh bother, Kate, i said (Barking) quite to the contrary!
Kate: Pal, did something happen to you? It was like you were speaking another language.
Pal: Sure! I'm fit as a fiddle. Now, lets pick up with Goldilocks again, shall we?
(Kate and Pal laugh)
