Explaining the baby panda death – On Parenting – The Washington Post

Last week, my daughter came home from school talking about the baby panda.

We later called up videos of the pandas on the computer and I dug out the worn old copy of their storybook about a baby panda.

We, like the rest of Washington, couldn’t wait to get a look at the cub ourselves.

Yesterday, I happened to check my e-mail in my daughters’ presence and discovered the sad news that the baby panda had died..

I gasped aloud. My daughter’s asked me why and I instinctively lied.
