The Torchwood Drabble Files by badly_knitted

Summary: A collection of drabbles, mostly based on the weekly prompts at tw100. Mostly Jack/Ianto as that's what I write, but no doubt other Torchwood characters will pop in from time to time. All genres are possible, but expect mainly humour and fluff, because that's usually what comes out when I write. All are 100 words exactly in Word, but apparently not here!

The Torchwood Drabble Files by badly_knitted
Chapter 962: Not Just For Mums
Author's Notes: Written for Challenge 395: Mother at tw100.

Summary: Meriel’s Mother’s Day card is a bit different from the other kids’.

Teacher said Mother’s Day was a special day to show your mum how much you loved her. Unlike the other kids, Meriel didn’t have a mum; she had two daddies instead.

While her classmates made cards for their mums, Meriel made one for her Daddy and her Tad, decorated with flowers, glitter, and a picture she’d drawn of the three of them. Across the top, she wrote in big, wobbly letters, ‘Happy Mother’s Day, Daddy and Tad.’

Meriel didn’t know why her teacher was sad for her. Although she didn’t have a mum, she wouldn’t swap her daddies for anything.
