No one wants to die in the forest!! Kids have a way with words.

Explaining death can actually make you giggle.

Explaining death may not be a strong quality of mine but I did my best.  Lil O has never really had to experience death, except for the classroom fish.

This morning while in line to wait for Lil O's school to open I get a call from my daughter about Uncle Don, who is my Mamaw's baby brother, even though he is 78.  Long story short is that he had died during the night and my grandmother didn't know yet.  I was a mess.  There was no way I was telling my Mamaw over the phone about this.  Instead of waiting the ten minutes until I could let Lil O go into school I just left.

I didn't want to wait those extra minutes when I could be on the road heading to her house to tell her.

While trying to explain to Lil O why I left and she wasn't going to school I remembered the classroom fish dying.

Me ~ We need to get to Mamaw's house right away.  Her brother died and she needs us.  She will be very sad and we need to give her hugs and kisses.

Lil O ~ Well, why do we have to go to her house?

Me ~ Because he brother isn't here anymore and we need to go be with Mamaw right now.  Remember when your classroom fish died and you didn't see it anymore?

Lil O ~ They aren't going to flush him down the toilet are they??????????????

I need to work on explaining death a bit better...

Conversations with my best friend BG. #thebgs

This will be a random question that will be from a CrAzY conversation with my Beastie Grits.

The first ever question asked since the very small, more work to do, blog change over.

1)  Where do you keep your wine?

My response,

"Above the washing machine as no one else knows how to use such a complex machine."

She said, I picture with her hands on her hips, "Yeah, NO SHIT!  LOL"

Thank you thank you thank you,
