We recivied news that my grandmother is dieing, and wants to see all her grand kids and great grand kids one last time. My son absolutely adores my grandmother and even gave her a pet name (gam-gam). I want to at least explain to my son that when i take him, it will probably be the last time he'll see her, I just have no idea how.
How do you explain death to a two year old?

My daughters' babysitter lost her mother who lived with her and helped her with the kids. My daughters thought of her as another grandma. I told them that she had been having lots of pain and owies, and that she was going to go to sleep and leave the owies behind. When they asked when she would wake up I told them that she will not wake up again. Yes they where sad, but they got over it. No matter how you explain it your child will be sad. The best you can do is let them express their emotions. My children took to calling all their other grandmas on a daily bases for a few weeks to make sure the rest of them where still around. After a few weeks of that they start calling every few days.
