Its hard to remember the first time I faced death. I mean when I was just a child.... was it a bug... a pet.... a plant/flower. I know that if I touch a plant now.... instant death. I kind of have a black thumb.
Well anyways, our cat was nice enough to bring us a little mouse friend. Unfortunately this one was not very talkative.... he also did not eat much... or move...
...ok ... well, he was dead.
The kids did have a few questions.... and I can only imagine what was going on in their heads.
I guess we all go through the phases of "Death" differently..... from knowing..... to understanding.... to accepting. And I guess this little guy is part of that process.
