Monster #2, upon calling his grandma and learning she still isn't home: "Man! Grandma's still at Uncle Buck's. Why?"
Me: "Because Uncle Buck is Grandma's brother and his wife passed away. If you were grown up and Monster #1's wife died, where would you be?"
Monster #2: "At Monster #1's house."
Monster #2 thinks a moment. I'm expecting to hear something like "because he's my brother and I love him."
Monster #2, throwing up his hands: "I don't know. I'm not a big person yet."
Question -- What are the funeral traditions and rules of etiquette where you live? I'm genuinely curious. The "what's expected" is pretty strong here -- there are ways of doing things and ways you just don't do.
