CHILD ACTOR MONOLOGUE:
Mom, can I help? Why not? I’m good at baking. I do not make a mess!
I do a good job. Can we make cookies? Chocolate chip? Everybody
likes cookies. I’m done with my homework. So I can help you.
Please? I want to be Rachel Ray when I grow up. Can I use the rolling
pin? I like the rolling pin. You want me to watch TV? I never get to
help. You told me you’d teach me to cook when I’m older, and I’m
older now. I know you told me that last week, so I’m a whole week
older now. I just want to help, Mommy!
