A typical Sam-Rachel Dialogue

Rachel (singing): Maisy, Maisy, Maisy, Maisy, Maisy... *

Sam: No, Rachel! Don't say Maisy!

Rachel (giggling slightly): Maisy!

Sam: RACHEL! Don't say Maisy!

Rachel (smiling manically): MAISY!

Sam (bellowing): NO NOT! RACHEL DON'T SAY MAISY!

Rachel (belly-laughing): MAISY!

Sam: NO NOT! NO NOT! NO NOT MAISY!

Rachel (compliant but still mischievous): O-tay, Mas. Happy!

Sam (calm again): No, Rachel. You not happy.

Rachel: Happy!

Sam (insistent): No, you NOT happy, Rachel!

Rachel: Yeah! Happy!

Sam: NO NOT! YOU NOT HAPPY, RACHEL!

Rachel: Happy. Maisy. Happy. Maisy. Happy. Maisy. Happy. Maisy.

Sam: NO! You not happy! Don't say Maisy! Maisy not happy! RACHELLLLL!! Thithter Heith!** Rachel saying Maisy!

How quickly children adapt to the roles of older and younger sibling. Never ceases to amaze me.

*Maisy is a show that both Rachel and Sam like. Sam has a DVD of it and we borrowed it once. The chorus of the theme song is so repetative that it makes you wonder 3 things: who wrote it? did they get paid to write it? and could I get paid to write something like that?

The chorus is as follows: Maisy, Maisy, Maisy, Maisy, Maisy, Maisy, Maisy, Maisy, Maisy Mouse.

It's kind of like the songs from Dora the Explorer. Take the map song, for example:

I'm the map, I'm the map, I'm the map, I'm the map! I'm the map, I'm the map, I'm the map, I'm the map! I'm the map!

Or, if you prefer, the backpack song:

Backpack! Backpack! Backpack! Backpack!

Suffice it to say, Rachel knows the words Maisy, map, and backpack very, very well.

** Sam lisps, which is not only amazing because his name is Tham, but also amazing because Sister Heiss has so many esses in it that it is absolutely impossible for Sam to say. Thithter Heith. So cute.

  4. Josie liked this so much she printed out the script and took it to school. Can you see this as a short one-act play?
