Sunday found me in front of the TV watching walls of water wipe out a country.
I quickly turned the channel as my older kids walked into the room but…they got to see.
And it’s not that I don’t want them to know. I do. But I was worried about some graphically graphic image (think dead body) showing up on the screen and them (me) having to deal with that.
So, instead I showed them how tsunamis form using a tupperware container, a bar of soap and water.
And then I placed some blocks on a plate perched on top of an inverted cup and shook the cup to show them how the earthquake worked.
Well, then I answered a lot of questions.
But I was happy to do it.
I want my kids to know what’s going on in the world.
I just don’t want them seeing dead bodies.
Not yet anyway.
Not til they’re doctors.
