yes, thanks for the Philosophy title, I'm dealing with grands!

Kerry Clare

You are the best, most thoughtful mom ever.


Merle, Luke REALLY REALLY loved that book. Thanks so much for suggesting it.

Kerrry, no you are. (You're too sweet.)

Wow. Really, really interesting blog entry - and it made me soooo grateful that I have a philosophy professor for a brother - I am now planning to put him in charge of these discussions as soon as MrD is old enough to start asking the hard questions! I really like your friend's response to them.


Steph, you're so lucky!

Another great book for children and adults is "The Fall of Freddie the Leaf" by Leo Buscaglia. It's gentle, beautiful, and very sweet, in addition to being an easy and genuinely enjoyable read that helps put the circle of life into an easy to understand perspective.
