Tonight, Amy Lee hit me with a question that I didn't know how to answer or honestly didn't want to have to think about... "Mom, how do our bodies get out of the grave after they bury you?"

A couple of things...where does he come up with these thoughts and more importantly, it kills me to think about how frightening that idea must be to him. . .buried in a hole & you can't get out of it... What would you have told him?

Wow, that's a tough one, Lindsey! I think I would have gone with something like after we're dead we don't need our bodies anymore because we'll be in heaven with God. I don't know, though. He's only 3, right?

For what it's worth, Maggie comes up with off the wall stuff like that, too. Sometimes I just tell her that I need to think about it to come up with a good answer for her.

WOW - I don't know what I would have said either. I think what Sinead said would be close.
