Flash Friday 55: 1st Day of School

“Hey Munch, time to get up!”
Mumble, mumble, yawn.
“Remember? It’s your 1st day of school!”
“Hey Mom, do you have to go into work?”
“Yes sweetie, I do. It’s all planned out: Daddy will take you to school and Brandon’s mom will pick you up. I bet there’ll even be treats involved!”
“Oh, Okay!”

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

That Munchie-Boy! Treats always make things better! Anyway, I am participating in Flash Friday 55, a meme hosted by our very own Mr. Know it All (aka G-Man). The purpose to to write a story or prose in exactly 55 words, no more, no less. Care to join the fun? Just link up in G-Man's comment section

I like his reasoning. I feel better with treats too. I can "see" the moment with your 55.

Kids are like pets. Everything goes better with treats. Great 55!

My daughters are always asking for treats. Didn't realize it was an epidemic; thought it was just them.

And Cheryl's right - they are just like pets. Tell them there's a treat involved and they'll do anything!

Of this is so sweet yet so sad... going back to school and work is not seeing them as much as one would like
Great 55!

treats make everything ok - or, at least, more bearable, I guess...

Nice 55!

Eric Alder said...

Munchie's right - treats DO make everything better!

Fun 55!

Cute 55. I had one of those munchie boys. Just wait until that after-school snack is a steak from the freezer. That's when I got a freezer that locked. ;-)

The bad news is when they get older and are worried about their weight.
The treat becomes a trip shopping - lol

Happy beginning of school

I hope he had a good first day! And a well-placed treat bribe is one of my best procedures for ensuring compliance...Nice 55.

My mom used to take us to Baskin Robbins every Friday after school. A tradition I'll probably carry on with my kids (although surely we eat enough ice cream as it is now....lol!)

Hope your son's first day of school is great!

Happy Sunday, Polly!

Big hugs
