boy tucked in bed

AT RISE:  [Mamma finishes tucking Boy in bed and heads towards the door.]

Boy:  Oh mom I remembered what I wanted to say!  Just one more thing.

Mom:  [Goes back over to him, snuggles close.]  What is it honey?

Boy:   Well, I just want to say thank you for the great life you have given me; for the wonderful childhood you have provided me; and for the great dad.  I love the great Dad.

Mom:  [Gazing into the face of this wondrous boy who happens to be nine years old.]  Honey, wow.   What an extraordinary thing to say.   I think any mom would DREAM to hear such words from her child.

Boy:  Well it’s not a dream!

Mom:  If you say so.  And you’re welcome.  [Hug.]  I love you.  [Kiss.]  Now go to sleep!  [Heads to door and turns off light.]

SCENE.
