I am so honored to be guest posting over at Mommyhood NEXT RIGHT today. Jessica and I became fast friends as we began to navigate the mom blogosphere and parenting in general at about the same time. But we formed a closer connection when we discovered that each of us had lost a parent in 2009. Parenting in the midst of grieving for your own parent's passing is beyond surreal and to say that it is challenging is quite the understatement. Particularly if you're just getting started in the mom/dad game. But as time passes, the whirlwind of parenting a newborn dies down and the pain of loss is not so raw, we realize what's truly important is that our kids know where they come from . . .
Please check out Jessica's blog for my tips (and reminders to myself) on how to help your little ones get to know loved ones who are no longer with us.
