Preview of Pan

Kyra: I have no idea what this is all about.  These people, I swear.

Mommy: Version 1 of Peter Pan's tunic ended up being WAY too small, but we did find a use for it... McKenna can be Peter Pan for Halloween, too...

Kyra: On the Importance of Royalty and Breathing Room

Kyra: Ah, finally!  That woman has finally let me stretch out in my 6-9 month clothes.  Do you know how stressful it is to try to hold your tummy in?  F that, man.  To celebrate, I'm wearing my new equestrian outfit.
Also, I'm pleased to report that my attendants have been busy trying to keep my entertained. 
It's important to have a royal court.

Linvilla Orchards


Chloe: I LOVE these things! Any outing is enhanced by the ability to stick my face in one of these.  I've been a monkey before, a character from The Lorax, all kinds of things.  These are great! 

Kyra: I feel stupid.
Amber: Kyra, stupid a bad word.
Kyra (sigh): Okay, I'll sit out this next one.
Chloe: It's just so fun!  I love it - how can you not like this?
Amber: You know what I like even more is flapping my arms and quacking like a duck to scare Mommy and make her think a bird is coming after her.
Chloe: OMG, I love that, too!
Kyra: You guys are mean!
Chloe: Oh, it's all in good fun!
Amber: Yeah, chill out.
(Kyra defiantly opts out by going to sleep.)

(Kyra wakes up in time to snicker.)

How Tall This Fall?


Holding the Bottle

Kyra: I can do it... it's just not my preference.  Ideally, I would like to be held by someone who also holds the bottle and occasionally kisses me on the head as I drink it.  But, if I'm home alone with Daddy and I'll starve otherwise, fine.  I'll hold the damn thing.
Amber (off-screen): Damn a bad word!
Kyra (sighing): Do you see what I have to put up with?
