Mourning, Kindergarten-Style

Today the Pea confessed that she had cried in class today because her teacher had read a sad story out loud. I told her there was nothing to be embarrassed about since it shows that she is sensitive to other people's feelings. 3Po joined in the discussion with this helpful tale:

3Po: You know those frogs that we had in our classroom? They died over the weekend.

Me: Oh, that's sad! Did you cry?

3Po: No, I didn't.

Me: Did any of your classmates cry?

3Po: No, but we were all disappointed and sad.

Me: Yeah, I can see why -- you've been taking care of those frogs for so long and watching them grow up, of course you'd be sad.

3Po: No, because we didn't get to see them die.
