Tonight we had yet another great one and it made me realize something. He is starting to ask questions and think about things that I don't immediately have the answers to. I know that's ok, but it's new to be stumped by my child. My 4 year old child, no less. Tonight went like this:
William: How come you don't ever use my name? You only call me Honey or Babe?
Me: I can call you William if you'd like.
W: No, I like it when you call me Honey.
M: I'll call you honey for the rest of your life. Even when you're grown up like daddy and even if you have a wife who calls you Honey, I'll call you Honey, too.
W: And I'll still love you and think about you when I'm grown up like daddy.
M: Well, geez, I hope so!
W: Mommy, when you die, will still think about me?
M: *blink* *blink*
W: Like when you're dead, does your brain still think? Does your heart still love people?
M: I think when you're dead you can still watch over people you love but I don't think your brain thinks like it does when you're alive and yes, your heart will always love the people you loved when you were alive. I will love you forever and ever, even when I die. And I'll always be watching over you, too.
W: Oh, ok, that's nice you still love people, even after you die.
*HUGE SIGH* It's getting deep in here, yo. He's only 4. Time to brush up on my Nietzsche, I'm afraid.
