A drabble is a short story that must have exactly one hundred words--no more, no less. They can be used as inspiration starters when you need to get yourself in the writing mood or just for a little fun. It's not easy writing a complete story using exactly one hundred words (If you don't believe me, try it for yourself), but I think it's a great way to challenge myself. So, from time to time, I will be adding little short drabbles here for my benefit and your entertainment. For more examples on drabbling check out @daelinya 's page. Hers are the first drabbles I ever read.

Oh wow... you write some powerful stuff! It's bitter sweet in a way, great writing *sniff* but...such a sad theme... :(

Awww, this one really gets me.  I remember what it was like for me babysitting back before I had the twins.  Brings to mind all that emotion again.  Very well done.
