mother, received various suggestions to get Mikayla into modeling for kids clothing and merchandise. Totten loved the idea and so in 2003, her mother got her a modeling agent and Totten modeled for various things such as for clothing, kids toys, and for cereal boxes. Aside from modeling, Totten took ballet and was even able to model for a kids ballet column.

Later in 2003, Mikayla was asked to star in a commercial for Cheerios after a modeling photoshoot and she gladly accepted. After this commercial, Totten loved being in front of a camera so she went on to audition for a TBS pilot titled Charlotte, Charlie, and Charmin. The audition process was very long. Millions of other little girls audition as well and were just as good. But to Totten's surprise she got the role! Totten had to take various acting lessons before the filming of the show as she had very little experience, but the show producers had faith in her.

In 2004, Charlotte, Charlie, and Charmin began filming and aired in late spring. The show followed the lives of the Charlie and Charlotte Cheridan, a married couple raising a family who's life is bombarded when Charlotte's single brother, Charmin, comes to live with them. Totten played the role of Amanda Cheridan, Charlie and Charlotte's adorable 4 year old daughter. The show became a huge hit and Totten's character,

Amanda, became a fan favorite. Everyone loved her adorable personality that came with a snappy attitude. Totten's life quickly changed. In a 2004 interview Totten said, "Being on a show is really fun! I know I'm on TV at an early age but it's awesome because I have so much fun on set and I'm doing a lot of things kids my age usually don't get the chance to do!"

Charlotte, Charlie, and Charmin went on for four seasons before the show finally said goodbye in 2008. The last episode was filmed in early 2008 and the show finale aired in summer 2008. Mikayla expressed in a 2008 interview, "I loved playing Amanda and she'll always be close to me! Whenever I feel like I have low confidence or need a boosting up I'll just watch Amanda and be like 'yeah act like her Mikayla!'"

2008-2013: This Is Our Game Plan, short breakEdit

Before the movie released, in the fall of 2008, Totten had started attending a regular school for the first time. She was in fifth grade.

In an interview, Totten said about getting the part, "I was called in not really knowing anything about the part or the show, I was just familiar with Wiki Channel. But after my first audition, I knew this was the role for me, I felt an immediate connection with Casey. So after that audition, I got super excited and started watching Wiki Channel over and over, imagining myself on the channel and when I got the role, I was bouncing off the walls! It was totally fate's dart!"
