I don't know what to do. The past couple days my daughter has been super crabby, especially last night. She's been crying really hard for her baby brother. She is 4. I have always told her that it is okay to cry over baby brother. At first on occasion when she was throwing a fit she would say she was crying about baby brother (even though Im pretty sure that was her excuse so she wouldn't get in trouble) Now I think that she is really crying hard for him. My friend and her son that is 18 months just moved in so we can both save on some money for a few months. We have been talking to Indi about sharing with Skiler and setting a good example for him. I think that being around him so much might be causing her pain because it is always after that she will go up to Silas' picture and starts crying 'i want my baby brother'. I also think that she understands a little more about death now than she did 7 months ago. A few times I have overheard her tell someone that her baby brother is in the hospital and he will be okay(even though she knows he died cause she tells people that too, she just doesn't get what that means). The first couple times she said this she didn't know I heard her and I just started crying and didn't know what to say. The last time I heard her say that he was in the hospital I was much calmer and once she was off the phone with my mom I tried to explained to her that when someone dies they can't ever come back home. I think that time she kinda got it. She had this confused look on her face like that was also so sad and started crying. This was like a week ago and it looked like she had just found out her baby brother was never coming home. Wow, I didn't realize I typed so much. Anyhow I don't know what I should do?? Do you think I need to take my daughter to a counselor?
