This little story began life once again on write-invite but it wasn’t shortlisted.

I loved every minute of being a mother but still craved more education and a career. I knew that it was possible to have both…although at times it was exhausting!

i think she should have killed and eaten her entire family! that would have freed up some time – and given her the basis for another short story!!!
