UPDATE: Help please! My kids father just passed away!
The father to my two oldest children has died this evening in a horrible motorcycle accident. First I ask for your prayers and second I ask for advice. My kids don't know anything yet and I don't know how to tell them. My daughter is 6 and my son is 3. My daughter was extremely close to him. And this news is going to devastate her!
Thank you all! I told her on Tuesday night. After I picked her up from school I took her to my moms house where we had dinner and after we all had dinner I sat her down with my parents, my husband, and my sisters. I told her that daddy had gotten into an accident and once I started crying she already knew. I told her he was with god now and with my grandmother watching over her. I told her that he was just so special that god wanted him home early. (she goes to a Christian school so she is aware of after life etc) she started crying and she says she misses him and can't stop thinking of him (she was very close to her dad) I tell her it's ok and that he will always be with her and watching over her. We did a balloon release for him with 27 red balloons (27 is how old he was and red was his favorite color) I had her and my son write him a litter and we released the balloons with the letter attached. She now where's his chain and sleep with a shirt with his picture on it. She seems to be doing ok. She tells me she doesn't cry because she has a piece of him. This has been the hardest thing I have ever done in my life. My heart hurts for my babies and for him he was so young and so full of life and we had spoken a few hours before he accident. It's still so surreal :(
