Re: Say What ?
This delightful story earns its "flash fiction" sub-heading !
It is a wonderful story with a closing twist.
The story opens with Lisa, the mother, and
Jayden, the little son.
Jayden is in the kitchen, sitting in his high-chair
playing, while his mother watches with great joy.
Lisa is also thinking about her monther-in-law.
She dreads her mother-in-law's visit. The
mother-in-law isn't especially appreciative of her daughter-in-law's
mothering. Each and every visit, the mother-in-law asks
when Jade is going to speak--an annoying question
she thinks is worth considering.
Over time, Lisa spends more time than she thought she
should attempting to teach her Jayden how to speak,
without luck. Eventually, Lisa abandons this foolishness.
She decides her child is fine. Lisa is determined to wait until
this adorable little one speaks on his own without
prodding. I won't share the outcome here. Suffice it to
say, this is a delightful story with a great ending !
Nice going, Jacky !
All the best,
