50 Precious Words

Vivian Kirkfield is running a fabulous little contest. A children’s story using just 50 words.

#50PreciousWords Writing Challenge is OPEN

This uses two of my favorite genres, kidlit & flash fiction, so you know I’m in!  Here is my tiny entry, based on a true story!

In Charge

Mom’s out of town.keep-calm-youre-in-charge
Dad’s in charge of little brothers and me.
Macaroni for dinner, twice.
Oh no…
Dad has the flu!
I’m in charge?!
Feed brothers- PB&J.
Dad looks green.
Brothers tucked in bed.
Dad’s snoring on the couch.
What’s that sound…?
Mom’s home!
Hurrah! We survived!
