In talking about dreams at the dinner table.

A: I don’t like to have dreams.
M: Even if they’re good dreams?
A: Nope. Wait, I have a dream I can tell you about. Caela, you were in it.
M: Okay, tell us!
A: First, I had dinner. Then I went upstairs. Then I went into mommy and daddy’s room. And that’s all.
M: But I wasn’t in that dream. You didn’t even say my name.
A: Well, then, I need to say your name. Micaela and I went upstairs, and we walked like this: Doot-do-doot, do-doo [walking her fingers along the table].
E: Caela, I’ll try to have a dream about you tonight so I can tell you about it in the morning.
