I was shocked this morning to turn on the tv and see that Jack Layton had died at 61. RIP.
Josh was beside me as I watched the news...
J: Mommy, why did he die?
Y: He was very sick, Josh.
J: How many birthdays did he have?
Y: Oh, he had LOTS of birthdays.
J: Mommy, I'm not going to let Daddy have anymore birthdays.
J: Because I don't want him to die.
How do you reply to that?!
