Innocence




'You are the horriblest mum in the world,' she screamed. Sobbing, she ran to her refuge curling up behind a bookcase. Through the haze of tears something caught her eye. It was THE book, brand new, the one she'd been longing for. “Oh mum you’re the best,” she murmured happily as she hugged the book.

  1. Ha! How the young mind swings from 'hate' to love just at the sight of something it loves. Good take.

  2. How terribly cutting that word hate can be when it comes from our children and how the heart rejoices when we hear those endearing proclamations of love. Amazing take on the prompt! ♥
