I said: “Yes Jr she did go to heaven and I believe she’d be 85 on Thursday because her birthday is the 4th of July! Let’s ask Daddy to be sure when he get’s home from work.”
He said: “okay mommy I need some juice and yes I want to eat some food” …..
What’s weird is that I was wondering = worrying about how he was feeling about her, since like his father, he internalizes everything and very seldom even in anger or frustration
“I may never know how he truly felt, if I don’t sense it, because he will not tell me”
This is a blessing because his father and I have said to him Jr it’s okay to talk to us about missing or thinking of Grandma. He finally did!
