The 3 year old version of reincarnation

Lying in bed before he goes to sleep seems to be where Alex does most of his thinking about the Big Ideas Of Life.

Alex: "Mum, who's your mum?"

Me: "Nanna's my mum."

Alex: "Who's Dad's mum?"

Me: "Ouma is Dad's mum."

Alex: "Who's your grandma?"

Me: "Well I used to have a nanna but she died."

Alex (thinks for a while): "Does that mean some one squashed her?" (thinks some more) "was she really old?"

Me: "No one squashed her but yes, she was really old."

Alex: "What happens to people when they die?"

Me: "They go to meet God and we can't see them any more."

Alex (pleased with himself for coming up with this thought): "Do they get really old, then go up in a rocketship past the clouds to see God? Then, maybe they can be borned again when they get really little like a baby!"
