BH1: May I join you?
BH1: Do you come here often?
SH2: Yes, with my sister. But not my mommy.
BH1: Why not your mom?
SH2: She's dead
BH1: That is so sad. What happened?
SH2: She went out to milk the cow, but it wasn't a cow. It was a bear and it ate her bones and her body
BH1: I am so sorry to hear that
SH2: It's okay I'm drawing her a picture. She's getting fixed up.Admittedly, I was shocked to learn that a bear ate my bones and I was dead. I think every mom's first reaction is one of self deprecation, "Oh great now my 3 year old is killing me in her kooky daydreams." Until I realized exactly where this crazy kid picked up these notions. I have been reading some Laura Ingalls Wilder books to the kids at night mixed in the Magic Tree House series when they grow weary of Ma and Pa Ingalls. Two weeks ago this is the page we read.
