Claire: Oh, so you decided to tell mom after all.
Kim: Yeah, earlier this morning.
Noelle: Well that's on a good note.

Kim: *helping with cooking*
Noelle: *wakes up from her nap* What's this smell honey?
Kim: I'm cooking dinner for us mom. *smiles*
Noelle: It smells different.
Kim: Sorry, I'm learning.
Noelle: Yeah, if you want to be a mom, you have to learn to cook or that child will starve.
Kim: You know what! I'm trying to learn here ok! I don't need you or Claire to be bring stress to me and my baby!
Noelle: I'm sorry honey, I didn't realize I been a bitch to you since this early morning.
Kim: Mom, I know you're under a lot of stress right now, but I am pregnant and my baby needs to be healthy.
Noelle: I know it does, and when he or she arrives, I'll be there supporting you two. *smiles*
Kim: *smiles* Thanks mom.
Noelle: Here, let me cook, go get some rest.
Kim: Ok. *heads to the living room and lies down*
Claire: What are you doing?
Kim: I'm resting, what does it look like?
Claire: Ok, well there's a room called bedroom, where there's an actual bed.
Kim: *sits up* If you want to watch TV just say so Claire! *walks to her room*
Noelle: *setting the table* Claire, go get your sister.
Claire: Alright. *walks to the stairs* Kim!
Claire: *chuckles* Ok. *walks to kims room*
Kim: I heard you. *walks downstairs*
Claire: *makes a face*
Noelle: Honey, pretty soon you're gonna have to use one of the rooms downstairs.
Noelle: Why? Going back and forth up those stairs are gonna be tiring for you. Even though it'll be a good work out for the baby, you're gonna get tired quickly. Trust me honey, I had trouble using them with you when I was pregnant.
Claire: No wonder she thinks she's so athletic.
Kim: Excuse me!?
Noelle: Claire, that's enough for today. Knock it off!
Claire: Whatever, I'm not even hungry; I'll be in my room. *walks to her room*
Kim: *sits down*
Claire: *listens by the steps*
Kim: C'mon mom, let's eat together. Forget Claire, she'll learn when she gets older.
Noelle: I swear I don't remember you being like that when you were her age.
Claire: *gets butt hurt*
Kim: Like I said mom, she'll learn when she gets older.
Noelle: I hope she does, I don't want her to be like her father. Right now she's just like him. Behaves like him, and talks like him.
Claire: *cries and heads to her room*
