I feel so lucky that, in the last week, Lucy has been able to meet all four of her living great-grandparents! Mollie knows them fairly well.
But now my grandpa's health is really starting to decline. And, I don't know if this is related or not, Mollie has been very concerned about death and us (her parents) getting old. The concept of aging must be really hard for a child and I try to give her answers that she can understand, and explain that we don't need to worry a lot about it because most people live for a very long time. Sometimes Mollie will just start crying (while we're driving in the car, usually), and when I ask why, the answer is something like, "I'm just so sad because everybody is going to die." It breaks my heart! And it makes me sad, too.
