Mrs. Robin was out searching for food for her three hungry babies. It was a rainy spring day. Everything was wet and slippery. Mrs. Robin landed on a rock. She slipped and she felt pain in her wing. She could still move it but it was painful to do so.
“Oh dear,” cried Mrs. Robin. “I have to keep going. I can’t give up just because I am hurt. I have to find food for my three hungry babies.”
Mrs. Robin wasn’t too far from where her nest was. She hobbled along with her hurt wing. She was able to find her babies some food.
Through her pain, she took the food back to her nest. Her babies ate their food and they could see their mother was in pain. They tried to be quiet while their mother had a little rest.
“Oh my poor wing,” cried Mrs. Robin, when she woke up. “It is so sore.”
Mrs. Robin knew that no matter how much pain she was in, her babies needed her. She did a few stretches with her wing. She found the more she stretched, the better she felt.
Soon, Mrs. Robin was feeling better and was back to normal. Her babies were very happy. Mrs. Robin thought about the last few days. She knew she would have to be more careful because she had her babies and they need and rely on her.
