Talking to kids about death

While pulling into the Target parking lot last week: Me: We’re just getting diapers and a card for my grandma. No toys today. Not even the dollar toys. Got it? Kate (age 4): A card for your grandma? Me: Yes, she is old and sick and it sounds like she will probably die soon. Kate: Die? […]
