I posted a while back about my ex-husband passing away. My kids hadn't seen him for a year and a half-two years (they are 3 and 5) so obviously I have not told them yet. His family is very understanding in my decision, which I am grateful for. Now to the point, my dad and I were discussing this last night and he made a suggestion for when I tell them. I was originally planning on giving them each a picture and telling them that he is in heaven and watching over them, my dad thanks I should also take them to his grave. I'm uneasy about this, I haven't been out there since the funeral and I don't want to cry when I tell them. Would it be good for them? Some advice and opinions are welcome.
Before asked I am telling them this summer after going to Disney World (unless one of them asks about him before then). My DD will be going to school with her cousins and I would rather her know from me before one of them let it slips in front of her.
Thank you for taking the time to read this.
UPDATE- I jut heard from his sister and told me that his ex girl friend (they were together r 2 weeks) is taking things off his grave and posting pictures of the stuff on FB!!!! I am beyond pissed right now!! I know nothing to do with my question just wanted/needed to get it out.
