angel Out of the mouth of babes.

Last night we, E, M, G and I, had a talk about how big our family is. (Dad's side included)

We were talking about their grandparents, and how it was cool that on Dad's side, they have 2 grandma's and 2 grandpa's. Then M asked why he doesn't have 2 grandma's and 2 grandpa's on Mommy's side and asked why they never got to their granny and pawpaw. I explained that Granny and PawPaw must've REALLY liked each other a WHOLE lot and got along so well that they decided to stay married forever. And that his grandparents on Dad's side DID LIKE each other, but like mommy and daddy, fought to much, so they decided to break up, and find a new husband and wife. And now everyone is happy! I then explained that PawPaw lives in Va, and when we move there, he will get to see him all the time. But that couldn't see granny, because remember, Granny is in heaven with with Nana (my grandma). He asked WHEN she went to Heaven. I told him when I was 23, BEFORE mommy had sissy. He asked WHY she went to Heaven and because I don't think it's ok for my children to know that my mom was murdered nor do I want to try to explain it to them so they understand, I told him that Jesus needed her help up there! He seemed satisfied with those answers.

This morning on the way to school, I guess curiosity/rotteness got the best of him.
Him: Mommy, can I ask you a question?
Me: (Thinking, Oh no, what now...) Of course you can.
Him: Are you gonna die when we're 23?
E: (Just had to ____ in) No M, mom can only die once. So she'd have to die when I'm 23, or you're 23, or G is 23.
Me: Ok, wait. E, shhh! M, I don't know when I'm going to die. I might live until your 90, or I might not. No one knows when they are gonna die. It's all in God's plan. And we won't know until it happens.
M: Well, am I going to die when I'm 23?
E: (again, Mr. Big Mouth) MOM JUST SAID WE WON'T KNOW WHEN WE'RE GONNA DIE, IT'S GOD'S DECISION. Stop talking about it.
Me: Alright E, stay outta this one, please. And stop being so mean. M, honey, I don't know when ANYONE is going to die. Only God does. And I don't think this is something we need to worry about right now. Instead of wondering WHEN we're gonna die, just be happy we haven't died, and we're all together.
M: Well I think we should call God and find out. Because I want to know WHEN you're going to die.
Me: (kinda chuckling) M, you can't call God and just ask him. You have to wait.
M: Well I want to know. And I want to know now!
Me: Well, you can't. Why do you want to know when I'm going to die anyways! (Now, mind you, I'm thinking it's because he's upset about his granny and the thought of not having a mommy is going to bother him. HA! boy was I wrong.)
M: Because. I'm tired of you being my boss. And when you die, you won't be my boss anymore. I'll be my own boss. I won't have to go to bed when you say. I won't have to take a bath when you say. I won't have to take my medicine when you say. And I can eat cereal all day long if I want to, and you won't be able to stop me cuz you'll be in Heaven with Granny.

All I could do was sigh... That kid is trying to put me in the ground so he doesn't have to have a boss!!! Little does he know, once he turns 18, he can do whatever he wants. But I like the idea that he thinks I'll be his boss until I die!!!
