My daughter's cat just died in the middle of my living room and it was a bit of a shock. He was young and fiesty, started acting a LITTLE sick yesterday thought he was doing better today...then, well...he died.
I was shocked myself so when my daughter said "Kiki is still sick, he can't get up" I went with it and said "Maybe grandpa can come take him to the doctor, because he is too sick to live with us anymore".
It just came out. I know I should probably have tried to explain death a little better and she does kind of understand it because she has been to funerals before, but this is the first thing/person close to her to die. She is also 3 and I'm here myself, so I didn't want to try to explain death while I'm double bagging her cat.
I took her in the other room with me to change her sister's diaper while grandpa picked up Kiki and left it at that.
Please tell me I'm not the only one that has lied.
