This isn’t going to be an amusing "cute Munchkin"post this morning.
When I’m at my part-time job, Munchkin normally spends time with his grandparents. But when they travel, sometimes for months at a time, then he spends time with another family. This family has six children ages 2-15 and Munchkin absolutely adores them, especially the 10-year-old boy. They’re kind of a rent-a-bunch-of-siblings for Munchkin and he’s spent so much time at their house that he now knows the whole family much better than we do, even though I’ve known the parents since college days.
At 2:00 AM Monday morning the dad, who is my age, had a heart attack and died. We can’t even begin to fathom what this family is going through right now, and Munchkin can’t get his little head around it, either. Last night he told us that they could go to the "daddy store" and buy a new daddy. When we tried to explain that that’s not possible, he insisted, "There’s daddy stores all over."
Please keep this family in your thoughts and prayers.
