Baby Elephant March
They appear, carrying your fragile heart in their hands.
Shlurrpff, off the breast.
“I do myself”; an experiment in feeding.
Mismatched clothes, and shoes on the wrong feet.
Backpack on and away to school.
Friends and teams.
Is that my car?
Children marching on to adulthood. I loved your use of a ‘sound’ word!
Thank you so much. I love onomatopoeia… and making up words to suit!
They are a little like elephants marching over your heart. Very nice!
Thank you 🙂
Super sweet!! Mine still wear shoes on the wrong feet. Aww can’t imagine them getting bigger!
I miss those days of shoes on the wrong feet sometimes. But I do love this age too. Teens can be completely wonderful, interesting, and also infuriating.
This really struck a chord with me. It happens so quickly and we’re left wondering where they went. Wonderful analogy!
Thank you! You’re right, it’s a blink of the eye and they’re off on the next adventure.
“Shlurrpff” was my favorite word this week in all of the micro-stories.
Hahaha. Thank you. I’m quite fond of it, as onomatopoeia goes.
