I've been wondering how to tell my kids about tough subjects. You know, the ones that are really important, but hard for me to talk about. I've been wondering how to tell my kids that they have an older sister. How to tell them that the grandpa they know is not my father. I don't think that they are in a "need to know" place in their lives. But, then, where is that "need to know" place? When will they be old enough to get it? And when will meeting someone in photographs become meaningful? When will I be ready to tackle those subjects with them? Honestly, this scares me more than the birds and the bees!
