From My Name is not Isabella

"Good morning, Isabella," the mother said. "It's time to getup and out of bed."

"My name is not Isabella!" said the little girl.

"Then who has been sleeping in my daughter's bed?" asked the mother.

"I am SALLY, the greatest, toughest astronaut who ever was!"

"Well, Sally, BLAST out of bed, put on your space suit and come downstairs for breakfast."
