(MOM enters, followed by LORI.)

MOM Well, maybe, I should be asking you –
. if you are doing anything special on Sunday?
L Huh? Why?
MOM Ah, well, ah, it’s – it’s Mother’s Day.
L Ohhh! Riiight. I forgot. Well, -
. why do we even have Mother’s Day?
(Before MOM can even answer, CARLIE and JERRY enter.
JERRY carries a book. CARLIE carries a backpack.)
C Mom! Jerry is bugging me again!
. Tell him to stay out of my room!
J But I need help with my math. Mom!
. I need help with my math!
MOM Carlie can’t help you?
C I have cheerleading practice! And I need a ride.
(TIM enters carrying a shirt.)
T Mom, my shirt button came off!
MOM Can it wait?
T But I want to wear this tonight.
J Didn’t that come off last week, when we
. were fight- wrestling around?... outside?
(JERRY keeps correcting himself upon seeing MOM’S
T I totally forgot about it. Pleeeease, Mom,
. can you put it back on?
C Mom?! Is supper ready, yet!? I have to go soon.
MOM I knew I’d run out of time, so I packed you a meal.
(MOM holds out a bag lunch for CARLIE to take.)
C It just better not be tuna sandwiches.
T Oh, I just remembered! Tomorrow is
. my class’s bake sale. I’m supposed to bring
. two dozen cupcakes.
MOM Now you tell me?
T I totally forgot.
(LORI has been watching the madness unfold with
great concern, and suddenly calls out.)
L Stop! I’m getting dizzy!
(MOM rushes over to touch LORI’s forehead.)
MOM Why? Are you okay, dear? You’re not
. getting sick, are you?
L No. I’m fine. But I never realized
. just how much you do for us.
. I’m thinking - EVERY day should be Mother’s Day.
J Is it Mother’s Day?
C Oh right, it’s this Sunday.
T I totally forgot.
J Thanks for everything you do, Mom.
MOM It’s - nice to be appreciated.
L But that’s really not enough, is it?
. We should be helping her out whenever we can.
T Are you mad?
L At the very least, we should appreciate
. all her efforts-
J Or try to not fight with each other so much...
. ah, or not at all.
L Or try NOT to complain-
C Thanks for making me a supper, Mom...
. no matter what it is.
L Okay, listen up! While Mom drives Carlie
. to practice, I’ll sew on Tim’s button,
. while Tim helps Jerry with his homework.
. Then we’ll all help get supper ready.
MOM I love you, kids. Come on. Let’s go.
