A Conversation with Hannah (6)
Hannah – When I die I’m going to come alive again after ten seconds, and it’ll be a happy life. This is my horrid life.
I’ll be a princess, and I’ll live in a mansion, and I’ll have twenty dogs and five horses.
Then I’ll come alive again after I die, and I’ll have a happy life, then a sad life, than a happy life, sad life, happy life, sad life.
Me – Do you know what that’s called?
Hannah – No.
Me – Re-incarnation, and the people who believe in it think that sometimes they come back to life as a beetle or a tiger.
Hannah – Well I won’t, I’ll be a girl every time.
A Conversation with Ben (8)
Ben – (at bedtime) I’ve got a funny feeling in my tummy and I don’t know what it means.
Me – Is it a feeling that says you need a Mummy cuddle?
Ben – I don’t know.
Me – Shall we try it?
Ben – Yes. (we do)
Sometimes when you leave me in bed to go to sleep I feel so sad I want to cry. One time I did cry.
Me – Why didn’t you tell me?
Ben – I did, but not until the morning and there wasn’t much you could do about it then.
Me – Shall I leave the door open so you can call down to me if you start to cry this time? Then I can come back and give you another cuddle.
Ben – Yes
(So I did, and he didn’t call)
