"Can I go to the Funeral with Jack?"

I have been meaning to document this sweet conversation with Kade. He loves to talk and think about heaven. His Grandpa Hess passed away when he was just a few months old, this has given us several opportunities to talk about what happens when we die. I guess we still need to work on a few things?

Kade: Where's Jack going mommy?
MaRea: A funeral.
Kade: What's a funeral?
MaRea: When someone dies everyone gets together and share their love for that person.
Kade: You mean Jack gets to go to heaven?!!!! I want to go to heaven too, can I go?
MaRea: No he doesn't get to go to heaven, the person who dies gets to go to heaven, like grandpa Hess. Those who love that person gather to talk about him, then we bury the body in the ground.
Kade: Oh mommy I love digging can I go, I can bury him.
MaRea: No, I don't think they want a 4 year old digging the grave.
Kade: Mommy I have my very own shovel!
MaRea; Kade look at the ground it's frozen, it would be really hard to dig!
Kade: And cold mommy!

This smile kills me, she reminds me of the little girl from the Grinch Who Stole Christmas.

While you are skiing, I am watching your little Avery sitting in her chair, dribbling milk from her bottle into her belly button and ginning like a Cheshire Cat.
