“Mommy, do you think I can go out to play?”

“Not today, little one.  It looks like rain.”

“But rain is fun.”

“Not today.  You might catch a cold.”

“But colds are nice too.”

“They are?”


The sweet smell of rain filters in as small droplets begin to hit the planks of wood shielding the windows.


“Yes mamma.”

“Why are colds nice?”

“Because when I get a cold you tell me stories, give me warm milk, and sing songs.”


“Can I go out tomorrow?”

“We’ll see.”

“I hope tomorrow comes soon.”

“You do?”

“Yes, mommy, I do.”

    Dear Dandelion,

    I think welcome to Friday Fictioneers are in order. And a sweet story and believable dialogue.
    Note: the “Romero” thing is a joke with Rich. He comes up with different names for me all the time.

      Thank you.
      I should have known Rich was only being silly 😉

    love listening to a mother and child talk about life. well done. also, when calling someone “mamma” or “mommy” such as with “hi mommy” or “mamma said it’s time to get home.” it gets capitalized, unless preceded by an article or pronoun, such as, “that’s my mommy” or “where is your mamma?” then, no caps.

      Yes dear, thank you for correcting me.
