two posts in one day! But I had to share this about my C. One of our concerns with C starting school has been when they talk about family and how he will respond. He has never been asked how many people are in our family or if he has any siblings. So school will be his first experience with this. he knows he has a brother He did get to meet him. He will tell us we have a baby like baby Amanda ( his friends baby sister). But being protective parents we do wonder how he will do with this. We are planning on meeting with his teacher before the start of school to fill her in so if Colin says I have a brother he is heaven or talks about a brother who is broken she'll know what he is talking about.
This week he is in bible school. On Tuesday they talked about how friends and family help you stand strong. How true that message is, we know first hand! So they had a paper doll chain they had to decorate for each member of their family. Well...when I picked him up the teacher brings over his family and tells me that it's the spiderman family. C had told her they were all Spiderman. I loved it! It put such a smile on my face and put me at ease because I realize that I don't need to worry he will do what is best for him. that day it was to make the Spiderman family.
When his dad got home that night he pointed to each one saying, " there is Aunt Spiderman, and Uncle Spiderman..."
It's amazing how kids can just roll with the punches and let you know that it's okay....they are doing just fine.
So yes we are all superhereos here in my house and can scale walls and shoot webs from our fingertips! ( although I would rather have the ability to snap my fingers and have everything pick it's self up like on Mary Poppins)
I tell Jadons teachers every year privately that He does have a sister that passed and if the topics of siblings come up he may say he has a sister in heaven and I dont want them to be caught off guard! I love that you all are spiderman! So cute!
Too cute!! I'm jealous of your web shooting abilities. I think I could use that to pick up things around here!! He sounds like he's got things covered when it comes to family. I did the same thing with school when my daughter started school. I just told her teachers that she's likely to mention it and it's okay. They were super understanding so we're about to start 5th grade where she explains things much better than pre-k.
That is too cute, the spiderman family!! Such a little boy thing to say! I love that he found his own way to answer the questions about his family. Hugs!
So sweet. Like Samantha we speak to each one of the girls teachers each year and let them know that yes they do have another sister who died. Even Keira who came after her sister talks of her often and tells stories of her. Children are truly amazing. Hugs to you Mrs. Spiderman!
I love this - kids are so amazing! I worry how I will get Lucia to understand about her brother Marco without confusing her - but I know that she will understand it in time.
