“Momma, What Happened?!” How To Talk To Your Kids About The News.
“Momma, What happened?!” (How could I possibly tell them the news?)
“What?”, I scurried to wipe my tears, stalling to steal a few minutes to compose myself.
“Momma! You’re crying! What’s wrong?!”, my 10-year-old is now wide-eyed and scared. In seconds, my twin 8-year-olds are by my side, just as scared.
I tried more stalling and mumbled something incoherent.
I couldn’t lie. I couldn’t evade.
