Good morning, kitty!

Come in here, baby!






No, Pa.

Children, children!


Time to get up!

Johnny! Johnny!

Johnny, wake up!

Alright, Ma.

Thomas! Thomas!


- Yes, Ma.

- Come on, get up.

Isaac! Isaac!


Ma, just another minute.

No, I don't want you to

be late for school.

- Just one more wink.

- Now, no, get up!

Thomas! Johnny!

Wake up!

- Isaac!

- Ma, that hurt!

But not half as much as

if I have to call your father.

Now get up!

Susan, mama's little child.

I told you not to suck your thumb.

Come on, sweetheart.

Wake up!

Suzie, darling.

Susan, wake up.

There a sweetie.

Come on now, you must get up,

'cos breakfast's ready.

Come along.

- Yes, you will.

- Yes, I will.

Yes, you won't.

Now, boys, come on,

breakfast is all ready.

Where are my pants?

Johnny, where are my pants?

How should I know?

You had them last.

- Somebody's hidden my pants.

- There are your pants.


- Get my pants away from that mutt!

- Get them yourself!

I'll break his back!

Give me that! Give me that!

Give me the bat!

- You're hurting my hand!

- Give me that! Give me it!

Don't you hit my dog!

You'll get my pants away

from that mutt!

Here are your old pants!

Pa, it wasn't me!

It wasn't me!

It wasn't me, Pa!

It wasn't!

Pa, it wasn't me!

I don't care which of the which of you

it was, if you wake me up again...

Now, I don't want to hear

another sound out of you.

- "It wasn't me, Pa! It wasn't me!".

- Shut up!

Why don't you go and tell him

where the pants were for?

Leave me alone!

Tattletale, tattletale,

hanging on a bull's tail.

When the bull...

Come here! Come here!


Mommy, tell Johnny

to leave me alone.

Johnny, you wild Indian,

you let Thomas alone.

- Just wait til I get him alone.

- Go and get washed.

Thomas, breakfast is ready, go.

And tuck this shirt tail

in your pants.

Give me that, I was here first.

Turn loose or I'll tell Ma.


Tattletale, tattletale,

mother's little baby.

"Ma, Ma!".


But Ma, the Johnson's twins wear

the bow on this side.

But Susan, you're not a twin,

and mother like it

on this side.

- Good morning, Ma.

- Good morning, Isaac.

- Breakfast is ready.

- I won't be a minute, Ma.

Did you ever learn to throw

your water out after you're through?


See your teeth, that's it.

Tie the shoes.


Johnny, look at your neck and ears.

Ma, I'm clean!

I told you, Ma,

he never half washes himself.

- That hurts, Ma!

- Hold still.

- You're getting the soap in my eyes!

- Close them.

- There's soap in my nose

- Close it.

Now, Johnny,

you can rinse it off yourself.

- Thomas!

- Isaac, go ahead!

Go on, Isaac.

I'm hungry!

Children, here you are,

nice and hot.

Why haven't you eaten your meal?

Ma, Isaac won't say grace

and I'm hungry.

- I was just waiting on you, Ma.

- Don't wait on me, son.

I've got to fix your lunch baskets

and I don't want you to be late for school.

- Are you gonna give me that egg?

- I won it fair and square, didn't I?

- Are you gonna give me that egg?

- Give it to him, Johnny.

Give him his old egg, I'm hungry.

Here's your old egg!

Heavenly father,

bless and sanctify this food

to the nourishment of our body...

Careful, Ma.

Be careful!

Johnny, will you hold still?

Get up here.

- Ma?

- Yes, dear?

- Where are my books?

- Hanging in the kitchen.

Come on, Johnny.

Please, hold still.

- Ma, where is my cap?

- Where you last left it, Thomas.

If I knew where I'd left it, I'd get it.

That's just where are

you going to find it.
