Driving in the car yesterday, my 5 yr old daughter wanted to talk about heaven. Of course I explained that it would be a great place with no bad feelings and no pain.
Ruth: "And I could play with my friends all the time??"
Me: "Probably, maybe you could fly!!"
Ruth: "Whoa! (Pause) So, that means in heaven you'll get a babysitter and get to do whatever you want?"
Me: (wistful) "Yup"
Let me also add that Ruth LOVES their babysitter. She's the neighborhood Mary Poppins!
