Earlier today while out rummaging through a thrift store with JellyBean he caught me a little off guard with his words.
JellyBean: "Mommy, I hope you die soon."
Mommy: "What?" (thinking to myself ... he did not just say what I thought I heard)
JellyBean: "I hope you die soon."
Mommy: (he did say that... deep breath ...) "Why?"
JellyBean: "So you can go to Heaven and meet Jesus" (said with a very matter-of-fact tone like it was the most normal thing in the world to have said).
Mommy: "Oh". (internal sigh ...) "I will go to Heaven and meet Jesus one day, but right now I am busy raising you guys and Jesus wants me here".
JellyBean: "How long will it take? I'm sorry you have to wait."
Mommy: "I don't mind waiting. I like being your Mommy."
JellyBean: "I'm glad you are my Mom. I love you".
