An excerpt …
(Libby talks to all of her dolls)
MOM: (offstage) Libby! Who are you talking to?
LIBBY: (to the dolls) That’s Mom. She doesn’t always understand things.
LIBBY: Grownups don’t know much about magic and pretending.
MOM: (entering) Libby, who are you talking to? And why didn’t you answer me?
(the dolls require some tender care)
MOM: Libby, they can clean the whole room if they want. Just get it in gear. The sweeper’s downstairs. You know where to get it.
LIBBY: I can’t leave my dolls alone!
MOM: Okay, I’ll sit right here with your dolls while you go get the cleaning stuff.
LIBBY: Okay, let me explain. George has a cold this morning and you may have to wipe his nose. Molly didn’t sleep well last night and she’s a little grouchy…
MOM: You’re only going to be gone two minutes!
(mom gets a lesson in pretending)
LIBBY: No, but I think you have, Mommy. They all look so sad.
MOM: Sad? All I did was wipe their nose and wipe their tears!
LIBBY: But you have to be gentle, Mommy … like you were with me when I was little.
MOM: I am gentle!
LIBBY: Look, in the first place, George likes to be picked up by his arms. How would you like it if somebody picked you up by your head?
MOM: Oh. Sorry.
