Its been 8 weeks since hubby passed. My 3 year old has been saying strannge things like I talked to dad last night and he told me he misses me and a couple of times she has seen him around the house. She knows he is gone and I do understand that to her gone might seem a temporary thing. Yesterday my nine year old came up to me because she was worried that every time we passed a particular corner near our house she saw her dad there and as she put it..."i could not see past him or through him. It was like he still had a body". I told her it could be that dad is telling her he is ok or it could be a sign of how much she is missing him, either option being ok. It did however get me curious about how others who have lost partners, who have little kids, would deal with something like this.
