Children's Stories
by Margo Fallis
A Lot of Children

Mama Eleanor had twenty children who always wanted her attention - Jacob, Jade, James, Jared, Janet, Jennifer, Jeremy, Jessica, Jesse, Jordan, Joy, Jodi, Justin, Jill, Jane, Julie, Joan, John, Julian and Jemima.

The oldest child, Jacob, help Mama Eleanor as much as he could, but the younger children didn't want Jacob. They want their mama.

One day Mama Eleanor woke up feeling very tired. She sent all the children over to their grandma's house for the day. She had the house all to herself. She smiled and sipped her tea. When she opened the window she heard the birds chirping in the tree tops. Mama Eleanor enjoyed having quiet time where she could read, or sew, or do a crossword puzzle.

By lunch, Mama Eleanor wasn't feeling so tired. She felt better and noticed how quiet the house really was. “Where's Jordan? Where's Julian who always wants me to hold him? Where's baby Jemima? I miss my children.” Mama Eleanor decided she didn't like being alone. She wanted all twenty of them to come back home.

When Grandma showed up at the door, all the children ran into the house. “Mama! We're home.” They jumped on her, pulled her dress, climbed on her back, and made a mess of the house, but Mama Eleanor didn't mind. She was glad to have her twenty children home with her once again.
