Kid speak

Since the death of his grandfather earlier this year, Ben has been trying hard to really understand death. A while ago, in an effort to move on from the idea that death is being in a box where mobile phones don't work, I tried to discuss the various theories that exist on what happens after death.

At the time, Ben was singularly uninterested in the Heaven theory, but was keen to tell the kids at pre-school that when he dies he is going to come back as a baby in another family...

Yesterday the subject came up once again (as a natural progression from the circus!) and he informed me that "some children and adults believe that when you die you go to England". Hmmm....

    Where on earth did that come from?!

    You do realise you're now totally doomed if you ever want to go and visit Europe - no British Museum and Tower of London for you my dear, can't have the kid thinking you're going off to the afterlife. hehehehee
