Wasn’t Expecting This

Just when you think you have it all figured out….BAM!

I was reminded that I may not get off so easy with Gracie in regards to the loss of Ryan.  This is the perfect example of how naive I am. I guess I just assumed because Gracie was only 15 months old, she wouldn’t really think to tell her little friends about her daddy. Naive I know especially since she has grown up with his memory very much alive and knows most of her friends have a daddy.  But not once but twice this week she has told 2 of her friends that her “daddy died” and is in heaven.

I have to say hearing she told them didn’t upset me like I thought it would.  Obviously this is all she has known and so I think it is very natural for her to just say it.  It kind of makes me proud of her.  I am proud that she doesn’t see anything wrong with telling her friends. I am proud of how mature she is about it.  I am proud that I didn’t turn into a blubbering mess when I heard she did tell her 2 friends.

So here’s to one more hurdle in this game called life.  The prize is knowing you are handling things in the best possible way and in the process raising some remarkable kids.
