I Am Abdicating My Position As Mother

I am going to abdicate my position as mother and probably go on an extended vacation. I am handing over duties and responsibilities to Ivy. I think she is ready. I have written a short play, based on actual events, to demonstrate my reasons for thinking this.

La Petite Maman, By Andrea

The Scene:
Breakfast
The Players:
Ivy - a precocious 3 year old, and Violet - a fiesty 18 month old.

Ivy sits quietly at the kid's table, eating her toast. Violet's food has also been served, and is getting cold. Violet enters stage left.

Violet:
abalsanama caladmsla.
Ivy:
Eat your food, Violet. Sit down.
Violet (casually):
blajajamdmhsa.
Ivy:
Violet, you need to eat your food now.

Instead of sitting, Violet takes Ivy's napkin.

Ivy:
Violet!! I'm using that! Give it back.
Violet:
No.
Ivy:
Don't you sass me!

Violet defiantly throws the napkin in the trash.

Ivy (in her best "how dare you" tone):
Violet?! That is rude! And condescending. You get a time out!

Violet hangs her head (pouting), walks over to face the wall and complies with Ivy's time out.

 SCENE.
