Here at Metro Moms, we’re all about giving you information and resources to benefit you as a parent and a professional.  This corner of Metro Moms – “Metro Fiction” – is dedicated to giving you a little oasis.  Every other Sunday we will bring you a special selection of short fiction.  Fix a cup of tea, stop by and relax a spell.  Perhaps five minutes will lead to ten.  And ten could lead to a habit.  A good habit of scheduling some “me” time in every day.

As of August 31, we have a new story, “Anniversary Dinner” by Janelle Ward in which we eavesdrop on a couple as they celebrate their 25th wedding anniversary.

You can read this feature story and catch up on any stories you may have missed by scrolling down this page.

Thanks for reading!
