Mommy’s Smile

written by: Jaycee Durand



Jenny’s my bestest friend in the whole wide world.
Same as me, she likes purple ribbons, drawing, bobble hats, and holding mommy’s hand when we cross the street.
Only I can see her.
I wish mommy could, too. Her smiles are gone, and she’d laugh if she knew Jenny stole blueberries off her pancakes at breakfast.
Mommy says she doesn’t mind Jenny, and it’s okay if I need extra love now that daddy’s gone.
“Jenny! Where’s my crayons?”
It’s a special day today and I want to draw a red heart for mommy. I’m gonna sign it, ‘love from daddy.’
