When The Love Is Gone part 6


Mom is in the kitchen making pancakes. The kids don’t like big, thick pancakes.Mom has to make sure they’re just right or they won’t eat them. Within the next half hour she has a pile of pancakes just waiting for the kids. It doesn’t take long for the kids to notice because they were in the next room watching television.They both wander into the kitchen and see two plates with pancakes on them. Their faces light up when they see them. They each go to a plate and sit down.The son gleefully said ” Wow,pancakes today!” The daughter asked “Mom, where’s the syrup?’ Mom then grabs the bottle off the counter and pours some onto both plates. She then steps back and said “You’re welcome!” The kids looked at each other and then at Mom and said “We’re sorry-thanks for breakfast!” They then went back to eating. While they were finishing up, Mom said she had an announcement to make. The kids looked at her and waited. Mom sighed and said “This weekend’s plans have been cancelled!” Both kids faces fell. Mom quickly added “Don’t worry, Dad will take you to the amusement park next weekend!”The son asked “Is he mad at us?” Mom went to his side and hugged him. “He isn’t mad at you-he’s just too busy this weekend.” she said. The daughter had tears running down her face. “I really wanted to go today!” she wailed. Mom said “These things happen-but he’ll make it up to you, I promise!” The kitchen was quiet for a minute ,then the kids went back to finish their breakfast. When they finished they got up and put their dishes in the sink and went to watch T.V. After Mom cleaned up the kitchen she joined them in the living room. They were watching cartoons on a D.V.D. The son looked up at Mom and asked “Do you ever think about getting back together with Dad?” Mom took a deep breath and said “Your father wanted this- he’s been unhappy about the way his life was going.”The daughter turned and asked “So you don’t hate him, then?” Mom shook her head no. “I’m hoping we can be nice until we work things out for you guys.”she said. “Great-I don’t want today to happen again!” the son exclaimed. “I can’t wait to see if  we can live together as a family again.” the daughter chimed in. Mom laughed and said” Dad and I aren’t going anywhere.”She turned and fluffed up her pillow and added “We’re here for the both of you, no matter what happens.” They all came to hug each other then turned back to the television and watched cartoons the rest of the morning.
