One More Mommy

Thoughts of a mom and her husband, son, daughter, pets, friends, job (or lack thereof), house, family, trying to be more ecologically aware...

My Little Hindu

Luke has recently become rather obsessed with death - what happens when we die, does everyone die, when will we die, etc etc etc. I'm not a 'religious' person, but I do believe in God, and long ago before we had kids Esposo and I agreed that we would be providing some churchin' to our kids. Looks like it's time for Sunday School!

But back to the discussions about death. On the ride home from the Field Museum last week, Luke asked:

"When I'm died, will I be made again?"

Esposo: "If you believe in Hinduism, you will."

Luke: "I will believe."

I'm not sure where he came up with the concept of reincarnation, if he saw it somewhere (it wasn't from us) or if it was referenced in some Noggin show (Little Arun comes back as a cow! A horse! This is a great show idea, let's run with it!).

Impressive for a three year old. Oh, I'm sorry, three AND A HALF.

And don't you dare forget that 'half'!!! ;)

I made the mistake of talking about death b/c there was a picture of a mummy in a Curious George story we were reading. The Duckling, at four (yes, and a half), was all freaked out and didn't want to die, etc., etc. Keep in mind this is the same girl who freaked out last year when we talked about her going to college someday...she tends to be a bit neurotic like her mother.
