Two days ago, I shared this on Facebook:
Oh my. Just watched a National Geographic documentary - American Serengeti - with the kids. Luckily, no predator dining was shown (I was prepared).
However, they did show a bison that died while giving birth (both mom and calf died).
After the show was over, my daughter broke into tears. I held her and kept asking what was wrong. Eventually, she shared, "I'm said for the bison.", and buried her head back into my shoulder.
(It led to beneficial, if not difficult, conversation.)
I simultaneously LOVE and feel unbelievably challenged by having a daughter who is as sensitive as her mother.
I never expected a reaction like that. But what came next brought me to my knees.
