This Week’s Writing Prompt
As we move into Mother’s Day this weekend, many of us are thinking thoughts of our mothers or those special women who crossed our paths and have been like mothers to us. I was reminded of the endearing practice many of these women have in bestowing pet names on youngsters they love.
Did your mother or someone like a mother have a nickname for you?
- How did this special name come about?
- Did she call you by that name all the time or just now and then?
- How did hearing this nickname make you feel?
Write a brief memory of you and your mom or mother figure. Be sure to weave in some dialogue to illustrate how she used your pet name.
Share your responses in the comments section below.
Happy Mother’s Day to all you moms!
