Reason to SMILE #289: MOM SUPER POWERS
Faster than a little boy’s ability to make up excuses to skip school.
More powerful than the myriad of sicknesses plaguing his body.
Able to spot a tall tale with a single glance.
Look! In the kitchen!
It’s a doctor.
No, it’s Mom – armed with the Pink Pills of Power ready to battle the crippling moves of the stomach’s arch-nemesis, Tum E. Ache. Pills so powerful that with the mere mention of their name, even the worst aches and pains flee in fear.
Our story begins at the Smith household where a little boy is just waking up to get ready for school….
We see our young victim crawling out of his chair, doubled over with his arm around his stomach. The little boy cries, “Ohhhh! My stomach hurts!”
Then from the kitchen, our hero appears and proclaims, “I’ll get the Pepto!”
WHAM! BOOM! POW! Those four powerful words knock Tum E. Ache to the floor and he quickly vanishes to escape his impending doom!
The little boy, now walking upright and wearing a smile on his face, happily ingests the bubble gum goodness of the powerful pink Pepto.
And our hero quietly retreats to the kitchen to enjoy her coffee but keeps a watchful eye on her surroundings. You never know when Tum E. Ache or his League of Phony Syndromes will rear their ugly heads again!
Being a mom means you have to face all kinds of evil foes every day, including that pesky “I don’t wanna go to school” monster. The key is being armed with the right weapons. A whole lotta love and patience and a little bit of children’s chewable Pepto 😉 will ensure the victory and the SMILES every time!
That is just so cute! So creative! So smart!
Thank you! Definitely fun to write. 🙂
Very creative! Great read!
