shattered heart inception

This evening, Henry was loving on his baby sister. He said, “She’s my baby!” and then said “but when baby dies, we won’t have anymore babies left”. So I had to try to explain to my 4-year-old that it’s not typical for babies to die. And that even though Oliver died, most people die when they are old. Then he said, with a hopeful look on his face, “Will he come back??”

And then the pieces of my broken heart shattered into even more pieces.

  1. Oh. This knocked the air out of me to read. How terrible that he doesn’t feel that his sister is here to keep forever. It’s not fair. It’s not fair.
