Through the Eyes of a Child

Written by dad - 5 Comments

The other day our four year old asked “Daddy, we’ll all be dead in a million years, right?” I told him that he was right, and he then asked if we’d be dead in 100 years. I said that Mommy and Daddy would be, but that he and his brothers might still be around. His response? “Well… Then we can have all the junk food we want, because you won’t be around to stop us.” That kind of reminded me of the time that our oldest son asked if we could get a cat. He was probably five or six years old at the time. When I told him that we couldn’t because his mom is allergic to cats, he replied “Does that mean we can get a cat if she dies?” It’s good to know that we’ll be missed when we’re gone… 😉
