Deep thoughts with a pre-schooler...

A friend mentioned that every night she had a question and answer session with her daughter at bedtime that she could ask anything she wanted and she'd answer it honestly....I brought the idea up to my 4-year old and he was super excited so last night we started...maybe parts of these conversations will become a new staple here at Two Monkeys & a Washtub!

4-year old:  "Mommy,  when you die only God and Jesus can see you in Heaven, right?"
me:  "Yes, when you lead a good life, going to heaven is your reward."
4-year old:  "But Mommy, it's not fair that only God and Jesus get to see you forever, I'm gonna miss you and Daddy too much."
me:  "You will still get to think about us and all the memories we're making and you don't need to worry about these big issues right now."

With tears streaming down his face, and me wondering how many more deep questions I will get just before bedtime...and how many more questions I will get related to us not being there for him anymore...the conversation takes a turn...

4-year old:  "Mommy, if dinosaurs were still around would their poop be big enough to cover the entire house?  You know, because they were so big!"
me:  "Depends on the dinosaur, but there poop might have been big enough to at least leave a big pile in the front yard."
4-year old:  "Okay, so how do they know how big dinosaur poop was?"
me:  "I don't know, we'll have to look that one up or take a trip to the natural history museum and ask..."  I'm guessing that the museum will love that question!

Oh my! The workings of a 4 year old mind. That sounds like something my son would say! I'm going to bring this idea up with him and see what he thinks. Thanks!
