    Why throwing it away? I think it's a shame to throw away personal stuff of a dead family member. In my Family everything is given to the younger generation since centuries.

    Or do you mean Furnitures etc.?

    We have the same opinion like you. Family things should stay over generations in the family.
    And we try to take as many things into our household as possible, but we simply can´t take everyting. For example her expensive clothes (Trachten, Hüte...not our size), or older furniture, some of the Geschirr and so on.

    (I´ve to switch to German, I can´t express myself in English right now)

    Es ist einfach ned möglich alles zu nehmen. Unser Haushalt ist selbst ziemlich voll, und wir haben keinen Ort zum Einlagern. Es sind so schöne Sachen da die man gerne haben möchte - selbstgestickte Decken, selbstgestrickte Wäsche, Schnitzereien, unzählige Andenken, Fotoalben, Bücher, Tagebücher..wir nehmen ja das Meiste (vor allem die persönlichen Andenken, alle Fotoalben als Erinnerung, selbstgemachte Dinge wie Decken), aber es ist nicht möglich die ganzen Wohngegenstände mitzunehmen. Sie hatte soviel Geschirr - schönes Geschirr, mit Enzian, Edelweiß usw. Aber wir hätten dann alles doppelt.

    Es ist wirklich traurig, am Schlimmsten war es als wir das erste Mal nach ihrem Tod in die Wohnung kamen: Alles sah so aus als ob sie jeden Augenblick wieder kommen würde: Die Kaffeetasse stand hergerichtet da, es waren noch Brotzeilkrümel auf dem Teller, ein Buch lag aufgeschlagen auf dem Wohnzimmertisch, daneben ihre Lesebrille... Als ob sie nur kurz aus dem Haus gegangen wäre.

    In Wirklichkeit ist es aber so dass sie nie wieder zurückkommt! Das ist das Schlimme. Die ganzen schönen Sachen wegräumen. Das bricht einem das Herz, weil man ja weiß wie sehr sie daran gehangen ist. Sie hat sich erst z.B. vor zwei Jahren neue feste Bergstiefel gekauft. Jetzt stehen sie da...und keiner weiß was man damit machen soll. Und dann die ganzen Dinge, die man ihr über Jahre hinweg geschenkt hat. Jetzt gehören sie alle wieder uns. Das ist irgendwie...blöd. Verstehst du was ich meine?

    Wir haben soviel gerettet wie geht. Trotzdem müssen wir soviel weggeben bzw. in die Altkleidersammlung werfen.

    Der Tod kam ja plötzlich. Ihr ging es nicht gut, also haben wir entschieden (mit ihr) sie ins Krankenhaus zu bringen um sie innerhalb einiger Tage wieder aufzupeppeln. Zwei Tage später stand eine Magenspiegelung an. Am Morgen war die Oma noch das blühende Leben (Zitat einer Zimmerkollegin und einer Krankenschwester), aber irgendwann nach der Magenspiegelung ist sie gestorben. Allein. Die andere Frau in ihrem Zimmer war halb im Koma und hat nix gemerkt, und die Krankenschwestern auch nicht da sie nicht auf der Intensivstation lag.

    Sie ist allein gestorben, und niemand weiß wie. Hatte sie Schmerzen? Wollte sie schreien? Wir wären so gerne dabei gewesen um Abschied zu nehmen und noch liebe Worte zu sagen - und die Hand halten. Aber nichts dergleichen. Der Tod kam unerwartet wie ein Blitz.

    Der größte Idiot, des muss ich wirklich so sagen, war übrigens der Stationsarzt: Eine halbe Stunde nach dem Tod rief er bei meinem Vater an, und er sagte: "Herr...., ich habe eine ungünstige Nachricht für Sie.." - Eine "ungünstige Nachricht"...

    Todesursache ist übrigens ned ganz klar da wir keine Autopsie angeordnet haben. Man geht davon aus dass sie nach der Magenspiegelung (bei der ihr ein Abstrich gemacht wurde) an inneren Blutungen mit anschließendem "Herz- Kreislaufversagen" starb. Totales Versagen des Krankenhauses. Aber was will man machen? Die Leute in der Station werden sich kaum gegenseitig belasten, und die Wahrheit kriegt man nur sehr schwer raus. War ja "nur" eine alte Frau...

    Selbst nach so vielen Wochen schwankt man zwischen Wut und Trauer. Naja, das musste ich jetzt mal loswerden auch wenns total am Thema vorbei ist...

    Nothing could beat Stuwwelpeter! But my daughter will be a bit older before I let her read it.

    I grew up on Pippi Longstocking and every other book I could get my hands on. I never minded other races and cultures having their heroes but I wished to learn about more than just Leif the Lucky and Beowulf. There are a lot of beautiful versions of classics out there too. Not classic but I think that The Wolves in the Walls and Coraline are both good for kids.

    In my grandmother's house I remember there was a series of books about German/Germanic fairy tales. It was my favorite. No one read it to me. Maybe once or twice my grandma read it to me, but I could read pretty early. Those stories, or atleast the themes, and the images have stuck with me to this day. What your children read will form apart of themselves. I still remember "Three Billy Goats Gruff". I still remember the trolls, elves, knights, dragons, dwarves, what have you. Those stories probably formed the very bedrock of my thoughts about who I was and what I wanted to achieve.


    PS. @ Valkyrie: I know it's been a long time since this thread was active but I wish to express my condolences about your grandmother's passing away. I too have somewhat recently experienced the death of my grandparents.

No multicultural political correctness.

    We can´t find this book anymore, but I´m sure its laying around somewhere. I really hope I can find it again some day, since I want to use it for my children later.

    and share it with us someday. xo

    Tomorrow I plan on going through my kids bookshelf and looking for any books like this. I don't know if it will help, my kids watch cable tv and some of the things I see on disney and nick jr are unbelievable! I've noticed that they are running a few shows that they repeat almost everything in spanish or show kids of all races dancing to the command of some retarded looking negro.

    I know exacly what you are talking about. They have shows like Dora the Explorer...even the rhyme scheme is Ebonics sounding.

    "Dora also speaks Spanish, teaching small words to her viewers." from Wikipedia. Great! Now my kids will be ready to marry Hispanics.

    There is also a cartoon about a Mexican boy...I think his name is Diego....

    I rarely have the TV on. And when I have children I will closely monitor the "TV time". Who knows what will be on in the future. History and Discovery channels might be the best bet.. if any TV at all. How about reading, outdoors, teaching your kids all of your family traditions as an alternative?
