Being an honest parent Take Two:
My stepmom’s youngest brother died last weekend. He is being buried tomorrow morning . . .
Me: Thomas, remember we have to go to uncle Poen’s funeral tomorrow, eh? Remember he died and now we have to say goodbye to him.
BT:Yes I remember. He died?
Me: Yes, remember how I said when people die we put their bodies in the ground and we give their souls back to God.
BT: Yes. So we going to give uncle Poen back to God tomorrow?
Me: Yes and say thank you for giving him to us for a bit. But people will be calling him Freddie because that was his name.
BT: Oh so his name is Freddie like my name is Thomas. And Poen is what people call him? Like you call me Beebee?
Me: Yes my boy. And remember to give Ma a big hug as she is very sad because her brother died.
BT: Ok Mama, I will give Ma the best hug and tell her uncle Poen is going back to God.
Shoeeee, that went way better than the chicken drama!
