What Moms Do by Ridley C. James (PG)

Posting on behalf of jenna_marianne:

Title: What Moms Do
Fandom: Supernatural
Pairing: gen
Categories: drama, holidays, family, kids, pre-canon, outsider POV
Length: Medium (3,917 words)
Warnings: n/a

Author on LJ: unknown
Author Website: Ridley C. James at ff.net

Summary:
Sam has a crisis in school, and Dean does what any big brother would, he comes to the rescue.

Review:
When Sam has to write a "What Moms Do" entry in his first grade journal for Mother's Day, he becomes inconsolable and asks for his brother. When Dean and his teacher find out the problem, the teacher describes what mothers do for their children, and Sam realizes while he doesn't have a mother, he has a Dean.

Both fluffy and heartbreaking, this sweet little fic shows what the young Winchesters may have been like, with Dean looking out for little Sammy, and filling in for their lost mother. While there's no mother in this fic, it focuses on the importance of mothers and alternative caregivers in children's lives and seemed an appropriate rec for the day.

Hi Sly, thanks for posting for me while I was away!

Looks like I goofed up when I submitted the rec to you, and the genre:holidays tag should be genre:holiday (sans extra "s").

Thanks again!
