Sam: "Mommy, I am almost six and I haven't been on TV yet."
Me: "Actually, honey, you have. You just don't remember."
Sam: "I don't just want to be on On-Demand. I want to be on the *good* shows."
Sam: "Ugh. You know. The kind of shows I like."
Sam: "So, what are you going to do about it?"
Me: "Honey, you don't want to be on TV. People on TV go crazy."
Sam: "But they're on TV."
Me: "Well, we don't live in LA anyway. And even if we did, you'd need an agent."
Sam: "So, what's stopping us? I know I'd like to move to Hollywood."
Lily: [interrupting] "Ooo. And I'll be a ROCKSTAR. Do you like my shirt? It's a rockstar shirt."
Sam: "I've wanted to be famous my WHOLE LIFE."
Me: "Well, you didn't tell me until you were three, so that's only like two years."
Sam: [ignores me] "You can't just give up on something you've wanted to do your WHOLE LIFE."
