Miranda had been playing quietly and when she finally emerged from her playroom, I inquired about what she had been doing.
I was playing with my horses and Barbies!
The Mum was riding on a horse and jumped over a log when the horse had a heart attack and died. The Mum was badly injured in the fall and had to be put to sleep.
It's ok, I was reassured by the 8-year old. It was only for pretend.
