A Sibling's Grief part II
When I put our
daughter in the shopping cart at the grocery store today, she looked at the
empty seat beside her and said, “Hey, what’s this for?” When I was pregnant
with Toren, I used to tell her that’s where he would sit. At the time, I wasn’t
sure if she would still be riding in the cart by the time he was old enough to
sit up in the seat. Today I could see that, yep, they would have sat together.
[Me]: That’s where
Toren would have sat.
[Her]: If he had
not died. (She’s getting better with the verb tenses.)
