We had a unexpected loss this week. Our cat, Clawdia, is no longer a member of our family. As parents, we were not only grieving the loss for ourselves, but had to inform our children of her passing as well. We were uncertain what they would understand, how to explain it to them, and how they would be affected. Thankfully, we were able to get a few books from the library to help have a difficult conversation. The books seemed to help. We are all still adjusting.
