Sweet Reflections

I love that these prompts provide a ‘no pressure’ opportunity to delve into the past, reflect on memories, look into the future, dream or just ramble. Thanks Charli, this week’s challenge had my mind wandering back to when my eldest son (now 31), was 10. 

My reflections are in response to this week’s Flash Fiction Challenge from Charli over at http://carrotranch.com/

……………………………………………………

My son snuggled in as we watched a little sneaky television, his siblings, already tucked up in bed. 

He turned his large brown doe eyes to me.

“Mum. I love you and I love the treats you make for our lunchboxes. You make nice sandwiches too, but sometimes….”

He looked down, unsure if he should continue.

“Sometimes…?” I prompted.

He continued. “Sometimes, I get jealous of the other kids’ lunchboxes. They have chips and lollies and stuff…..just sometimes”, he finished with uncertainty.

I smiled and kissed his forehead.

“That’s where the schoolyard trading tradition comes into play Mate.”
