After getting the girls to bed, I was trying to catch up with blogs.
Soleil came out. She told us she was upset about Alex… Alex is a boy in the special needs class. He died on Thanksgiving Day. I set aside the computer and held her and said all that I could to talk about death and life and not knowing how long we have, etc.
Eventually, we got her calm and in bed.
Damn, this parenting thing is hard… My heart goes out to Alex’s family. To lose a 6 year old must be hell.
