K10: Mom, I have a question that's been bugging me.
Me (only half paying attention): Mmm?
K: What happens to us after we die?
Me (with a swift intake of breath and suddenly fully alert): What do you think happens?
K: I don't know. Maybe we go to heaven, maybe we just die. Maybe we wait around for a while for a new life. I'm not sure.
Me: All those are good ideas. Really, no one knows. People may think they know. But really, no one knows for sure.
silence for a bit...
Me: Are you worried about what happens when you die?
K: No, just wondering.
Then he went off to play with Legos, pretending to blow things up.
What do you think? How did I do? Honestly, I don't have a good answer to this one.
