Actual Conversation

The Scene:

In the car. Driving home from T-Ball. Just now.

Totally out of the blue.

The Conversation:

Five-year old Savannah: Mommy? Did Adam and Eve die?

Me: Oh ya. Long, long, long, long time ago!

Savannah: Why did they?

Me: Well, everyone dies. This life is just a short time we spend here on earth. Then we go live with Heavenly Father in heaven forever!

(In case you couldn't tell, I was thinking how I could turn this into a teaching moment. Because that's what we do.)

Savannah: Everyone dies?

Me: Yup. Even Mommy and Daddy will die someday. But don't worry, not for a long time.

Savannah: *pause* But who will make us dinner?  *pause* I can make toast.


It's good to know I'll be missed.

30 super cool people speak:

Polly Blevins said...

That is funny. At least she is happy to help out where she can. I hope you teach her how to make more than toast (just in case). ha ha ha

Lisa said...

Conversations with children are so delightful! I love what a problem solver she is. :)

Garden of Egan said...

Hmmmm, she is wise beyond her years.
Incredibly.

You should teach her some macaroni and cheese skills before you kick the bucket.

Brittney said...

yes i agree with the mac n cheese thing. I knew how to cook mac n cheese and top ramen and grilled cheese when i went to college. Vital skills. You really don't need more knowledge than that.

gigi said...

Smiles.

Kristine said...

The important things in life . . . food! :)

Ben, Heather and kids said...

we've had this conversation with our kids.
our oldest (6) says he'll take care of his brother (2-1/2) but he's not sure if he can manage his 2 sisters.. he says he'll to call gma/boppa (just minutes from our house) to come take them.. 3 kids is just TOO much for him :)

Kristina P. said...

So deep and thoughtful.

Cheeseboy said...

Ha ha! Pass the toast!

the fowlers said...

well, at least you know that there will be toast for dinner if you die. better stock up on jelly.

Marie said...

LOVE this! Cutest story ever :)

Scrappy Girl said...

Oh how sweet...those conversations put a grin on my face and warm my heart.

Saimi said...

How sweet! I love toast smothered in melted butter, maybe I can come over for dinner! :)

Kazzy said...

Sounds like your toast-making skills will definitely be missed! Very cute. ;)

Jennifer said...

My youngest (6) is determined to never move out because if she does, who will take care of her? She has plans to bring her husband here someday, too, so I can take care of both of them.

cannwin said...

haha! gotta love the way they process the important stuff.

Patty Ann said...

Oh, I love it!! It sounds just like my girls! They only miss the important things in life!

Amber said...

Mmmm Yummy..toast. She has learned everything she needs to about growing up. Hee hee!

Charlotte said...

I'm in a panic. All my kids can make toast now. I might as well lay down and die now.

ldsjaneite said...

Hee hee.

This also makes me think of A Charlie Brown Thanksgiving. As a child, I couldn't see what was wrong having toast for Thanksgiving dinner. Savannah can come cook for me when the holiday comes around.

One Cluttered Brain said...

Toast?
i bet she puts chocolate or nutella on it to forever remind her of you.

:)

Love this conversation Serene!
You ROCK!!

The Tanners said...

that's pretty cute! She is so beyond her years!

Sue said...

Resourceful girl you've got there!

=D

The Martos Fudge said...

Didn't you know... Dinner is the most important part of life? Too Cute.

M-Cat said...

As long as you've got toast,what more does one need?
Cute convo

Lili said...

Aw, cute!

Lara said...

At least she's prepared. And, at least she knows what you're really good for.

My kids wouldn't even care if I died, since I never make them dinner anyway!

Mr. Stupid said...

That's so funny and cute. Good thing she can make toast.
Have a good day...:)

Neisha said...

haha! ah, that's cute :)

Braden said...

Clearly, you are working to hard at making dinner--just do toast from now on.
