Bedtime Conversations With A 6 Year Old

Mr. K - my special little guy

Tonight was program night at the kids school. It's a night for the teachers to let the parents know what is going to happen in the classroom and a bit of a look ahead for the year.  The kids always stay home with hubby, and I go to program night - since I am the one that generally deals with school stuff and teacher meetings etc.

I got home after Mr. K's bedtime, but he was still awake so I went in to read him a story and have a bedtime chat.  As I was getting ready to leave, he wanted an extra cuddle.  I gave it to him and a kiss, and told him I always come back to say goodnight before I go to bed, even though he is asleep.

He looked at me very seriously and said "not when your dead". I said no, but I hoped that would not be for a long while and that even when I do die, I will be an angel watching over him, just like Papa Rick watches over all of us.

He told me it was going to happen soon. Sooner than I think, apparently.  I asked how he knew, if he had conversations with God.  He said yes, and that God told him I was going to die soon.....

I am not quite sure what to make of that. It reminded me of something my mom told me happened when I was little.  We were heading on a trip to Toronto, and as we were driving I told her she was going to meet God later that day.  I am happy to say, that did not happen and she is still alive and well 30+ years later.

Hopefully Mr. K is wrong and I still have many years left on this earth.


  1. You handled the situation well, it only takes a moment to comfort our children about this scary subject

  2. That would scare the bejeezus out of me, some of the things that kids say!!

  3. that's some conversation!

  4. That sounds like something that would really shake a person up. Hopefully he is wrong!
