“Dinner, Dinner, on the Wall” – My #50PreciousWords Story

After I announced on Saturday that I’ll be entering Vivian Kirkfield’s #50PreciousWords contest, it seemed only fair to share my entry with you all here, in yet another unscheduled blog post!

You can read more about the contest on Vivian’s website. Entries will be accepted until 11:59 pm on 6th March. And now, here it is – my 50-word mini story:

Dinner, Dinner on the Wall

Dinner, dinner on the wall,
ceiling, carpet, window, stool.

Smeared in baby’s wispy hair,
rice and veggies everywhere.

Dad and Mummy scrub and clean,
More tired than they’ve ever been.

Baby gurgles happily,
messy face alight with glee.

Mum and Daddy laugh and call,
“Who’s the cutest of them all?”
