I realized once I was home last night that today was book character day for Owen. I looked through his books, Anderson's books and the downstairs books and came up empty. I went back up and looked through again...Big Dog Little Dog had been hiding!
He asked me this morning who was going to be his big dog. He also asked, jokingly, if he had to wear pants since the dog in the book doesn't wear pants.
Anderson also wanted his picture taken with a book.
Go ahead and mention my child, The one that died, you know. Don't worry about hurting me further The depth of my pain doesn't show. Don't worry about making me cry I'm already crying inside Help me heal by releasing The tears that I try to hide. I'm hurt when you just keep silent, Pretending it doesn't exist. I'd rather you mention my child Knowing that she has been missed. You ask me how I'm doing, I say "pretty good" or "fine" But healing is something on going I feel it will take a lifetime.
