Japan's Quake and Tsunami. Life is not fair.

 

We are reminded yet again of the fragility of life. The record-breaking earthquake in Japan this past Friday triggered a destructive tsunami, swallowing the lives of thousands. After learning of the news, my 10-year old son innocently turned to me with fear in his eyes and asked, “Mom, will there ever be a tsunami where we live?” I simply hugged him with a reassuring embrace (the kind where we swear we will NEVER EVER let anything harm our children) and said, “No.” Read some helpful hints on what more to say to your kids here.  How do you explain nature’s unfair wrath to your sons and daughters?

I am reminded of the parental cliché, “Life is not fair.”  Instead of succumbing to these words, lets make an effort to donate to the Japanese Red Cross through Google's Crisis Response site, which also offers resources and information about the disaster. Our thoughts and prayers are with all of the victims and their families.

On the home front this week you can win a pack of Camp/School Labels from Mabel’s Labels - for all of your child’s items that tend to go straight to the lost and found! Simply “Like” Butterfly on Facebook or “Follow” @ButterflyMoms to be entered to win. Be sure to leave your method of entry here.

More resourceful and entertaining blog entries from moms alike:

Spring is nearly here- a season that denotes brightness and cheer. What perfect timing.
