We've now lost 3 chickens...sad times. We aren't used to this country life! I won't go into the details of how they died because its sad and there's no need.
But I did just want to say that we were totally open and honest with Felicity about them dying. She wanted to see one of them when it died and said goodbye to her. I really believe that children of a certain age don't understand the concept of heaven or in the stars and that it is fair to them to be honest and open. So I have decided that is how I want to be with Felicity.
When we talk about my Dad, I say he isn't here anymore and that he died because he was ill.
When she is older, I will change the way I tell her things, to explain things in more detail and to help her not to worry. For example, I will explain that my Dad was ill, people get ill but that not everyone is going to die at that age and people usually die when they are old.
Morbid conversation but I think it is important. It's important to me when I have been through so much grief.
