Motherhood Monday Fiction Meme – 14
It’s Monday again and time for this week’s Motherhood Monday Fiction Meme.
“Come in son. Are these your friends? Well there’s more than enough milk for all of you.”
Johnny nodded mutely as his mother poured the glasses of cold milk out.
“Would you all like a chocolate biscuit? They are delicious.”
Johnny nodded again and the children eagerly reached out for a biscuit.
“Now Johnny, I hope you’re going to be comfortable about talking about this in front of your friends, but it’s your parents’ evening at the school tonight. I hope your teacher is going to say good things about you? That you’ve been working hard?”
“Well it’s a never ending round of things to do isn’t it? It’s very tiring. You wait till you have children. Then you’ll understand. I think I better have a little rest before tonight.”
Johnny’s mother settled back into her chair and closed her eyes. Soon she was softly snoring.
Johnny got up and gently spread a blanket upon her lap.
“Right kids, it’s time to go. We’ll see Grandma next week.”
The theme for this week by the way is forgetful.
