"Come on, Sarah, you've hardly touched your eggs, and it's almost time for the bus to come."
"They're yucky. I don't like them."
"Oh, come on! They're perfectly fine! Hurry up and eat or you're going to be late."
"I don't like this kind of eggs! It's not the kind Mom makes!"
"Sarah, please. I'm trying, but I can't do everything exactly like Mom."
"I hate this breakfast! You're stupid and you don't even know how to cook eggs right! I want Mom!"
"I miss Mom too, Sarah."
"Daddy? When is Mommy...coming home?"
"I don't know. I wish I did."
"I'm not hungry. I have a tummy ache."
"Hey, I know! How about we go to the Pancake House for breakfast and then I'll drive you to school?"
"Can I get blueberry?"
"With whipped cream?"
"Why not? Come on. Get your coat."
