Mothers Pride - inspired by Saturday Centus

Week 53 of Saturday Centus the prompt is to use up to 100 words (not including the prompt) using the line "I'd like to teach the world to sing..."

Mothers Pride

We were all sitting down to dinner when he looked at me and with a thoughtful look on his little face, said. "I'd like to teach the world to sing."

It almost took my breath away and my heart just swelled with pride as I thought of his words, I was so pleased that I had raised such a sweet sensitive boy.

"Aw, how lovely darling! Why? So that everyone could be in perfect harmony and learn to participate and co exist?"

Without missing a beat he answered. . . "No, so I didn't have to listen to Amy Reynolds next door practising her blasted scales!"
