The scene: Mama is in the kitchen, getting ready to go to work. Zoe slides in from the living room, resplendent and grinning in red footie pajamas. “Peter and the Wolf” plays in the background.
Zoe: “I forgot something!”
Mama: “What did you forget?”
Zoe (stretching out her hand): “I forgot you! Come on!”
Needless to say: worked like a charm.
