For FullMentalPanic and Fahiru, who described to me how questionable the mother is after we read The Three Little Wolves and the Big Bad Pig.
Mrs. Pig sighed as she gently rocked in her rocking chair, enjoying the quiet afternoon. Sunlight streamed through the freshly washed window, illuminating the unusually clean room. Taking a sip from her tea, she thought back to the events that had transpired the day before. Her three sons, under her strong advice, had moved out. As any responsible mother would, she had made sure to warn them of the Big Bad Wolf. Now that she was thinking about it, she probably should've added that their houses would need to be strong enough to withstand the wolf's huffing and puffing.
Oh, well, she thought. The youngest will be smart enough to come to that conclusion, and will tell his brothers.
It was so nice and relaxing in her chair with no piglets running around squealing. Not to mention that she didn't need to make as much for dinner, and there would be fewer dishes to wash afterwards. Laundry piles would be smaller as well. She finally had time to do the things she wanted to. Gardening, reading, painting, dancing, music - the possibilities were endless!
She wouldn't miss her sons one bit. They had had their chance with her and had blown it. Stifling a yawn, Mrs. Pig dozed off into a well earned rest.
A/N: There's this adaption to The Three Little Pigs called The Three Little Wolves and the Big Bad Pig, which is almost the same thing but with the roles reversed. In the illustrations, when Mrs. Wolf is telling her cubs to move out, she's in bed with curlers in her tail and is painting her nails/claws, all the while with a totally unconcerned face! My family has had many conversations regarding Mrs. Wolf after we read this.
This was for Twelve Shots of Summer: Quarter Queller, with the prompt being Fairy Tale With a Twist.
I hope this was an enjoyable read! Reviews are appreciated!
