Death of a grandparent
I just lost my mom 2 weeks ago and she was the main care giver for my son since he was born. The past few months I was off from work taking my mom to her radiation and chemo treatments. So he was used to me being home. He already had separation anxiety from me before. We unfortunately lost her to a different medical condition and it was sudden. I haven't gone back to work yet but will be shortly after I find a new daycare system for him. He is 21 months, my question is, does he sense something has happened? He doesn't really talk just yet but he will cry such sad tears every so often and I hug him and tell him it will be ok and he calms down. I have shown him pictures of her and he smiles which melts my heart because I don't want him to forget her. I just don't know if he's too young to know grief?
