[ A mother and her two children, Royce and Jack, in the kitchen. Royce is seated at the kitchen table. Jack is in a highchair. The mother is bending down and speaking to them at eye level. She has a spoon in her hand. ]

( Mother ) Royce, when you finish your snack, we’re going to play a little game. - I’m going to interview like on TV, okay? - Alright. - Alright.

[ She brings the spoon to Royce’s mouth as if it was a microphone. ]

( Mother ) What’s your name? -

( Royce ) Royce.

( Mother ) Hi Royce. How old are you?

( Royce ) Three.

( Mother ) Three! Are you a big boy?

( Royce ) Yes.

[ The spoon microphone goes back and forth between Royce and his mom as if she was interviewing him. ]
