In Little Creatures, Abby tries to get her mother to help her with her puppet creations, hoping that maybe it can bring them closer together.
(Abby talks to her puppet)
ABBY: She’s always clueless, you know? You see how she is with me. I think she’s more afraid of me than anything else. She goes on about being close and being friends but there’s something distant about her, she’s always taking a step forward and then two steps back. Notice that? Notice how she always seems to be hiding something? It’s odd and yet she talks about me being weird. I don’t think I’m all that strange. Am I? I like being the way I am and spending time with my creations. It’s like you are all becoming my family. Just once I wish for my mother to take an interest in what I’m doing. It would mean so much to me, but I don’t think that fantasy will ever come true.
