Saturday Centus Week #70 ~ The Birthday Gift

Hi all, it’s time for Saturday Centus again. This week Jenny has chosen a simple prompt: “What kind of a pizza is this” and we are allowed to use a picture in addition to the 100 words.

My contribution will be short and sweet this week. Please forgive me in advance if I am kind of slow getting around to reading your entries. I am having back issues and can’t spend a whole lot of time sitting at my computer. But, I will try in earnest to make the rounds and read your wonderful entries. Have fun!
And now on to my contribution.....
The Birthday Gift


“Yes lovey why are you whispering?”

“I don’t what mom to hear.” he whispered.

“Hear what?” I asked.

“I want to make something nice for mom’s birthday. Can you help me?” he asked.

“Sure, what did you have in mind?” I asked

“This pizza!” He handed me a page torn from a magazine.

“What kind of pizza is this?” I asked

“It’s a dessert pizza, gramaw! It’s got all the kinds of fruit I like on it and doesn’t it look good! And... and instead of a birthday cake I want to make one of these for mom .... ‘cause I love her so much!” he pleaded.

Kids, you gotta love 'em. This is a true story and sometimes children are as transparent as water. I think this was more for him than his momma, although she had tears in her eyes when he carried it to the table smiling from ear to ear. 
Thanks for dropping by! Please take a moment to check out more entries this week by heading on over to Jenny Matlock's blog (off on my tangent). You can get there by clicking on this link:

He's so cute, and he's obviously brilliant. How clever of him to make his mom something HE wanted to eat. Great story, and that looks like my kind of pizza. laurie
