Millie and Leo

Leo and I had a lovely day in the sun today whilst daddy was at home putting some wallpaper up πŸ˜€

After a great park visit and before a shopping trip to buy daddy’s birthday presents, we headed on down to visit Millie. 

This is as close as we will ever get to our children playing together (with their grandpa also – that’s the headstone at the other side of Leo). 



The reason I’m showing this? 

I’m showing you that it’s ok.

It’s okay to take children to cemeteries and let them grow up understanding that yes they are a place of sadness, but they should also understand that they are a place full of love and not somewhere to be scared of.

Leo spent most of the time today getting me to blow bubbles and putting everything else that Millie has at her sleeping place in and out of pots (he seems to like cleaning up – that’s a good sign πŸ˜‰) 

I know that some people won’t agree with us taking Leo there and treating Millie’s place as a normal place to go – and that’s fine, it’s my choice and that’s yours.

We want Leo to grow up understanding that he can talk to his big sister, she might not be able to speak back but I want it to be a place where he is comfortable and relaxed at; and we know it will be. 

That’s it really – just a short but little blog for you this evening xxx

I hope you’ve all enjoyed the sun today, we certainly have! X

    Of course it ok, my kids love going to say ‘hello’ to their nana in the garden of remembrance at our local church. It helps to keep the good memories alive. Xx

    Taking my boys to their sisters place in the cemetery is a normal part of their lives. Our older boy shares his birthday with Freya so at important anniversaries we always go. They talk to her, put flowers and balloons there and we also have a tree at home where they do something similar. We wanted them to always know that they had a sister. X
