       (This is a younger boy, around four - but the actor can be older if necessary!)

Mommy, where are you going?  (Getting a little worried)  Mommy?  I don't want to stay here!  No!  Not if you leave! Can you stay?  Can you PLEASE stay?

Oh, Mommy, I know Jordan goes here, too, but I wanna go home!

         (Runs to the front of the stage and grabs at the 'fence')

Mommy!  Don't make me stay!  PLEASE!    (Starting to get really upset)  I promise to be good and NEVER disobey EVER again!  PLEASE!

          (Shakes the bars,  stronger, really rattling them)

MOMMY!  Help!

           (Looks around, sighs deeply, slumps, turns to walk away, stops, runs back to the fence)

Mommy!  You're fired!

            (Stands tall and the first day of what is going to be a very long first year at school)
