Noah: "Mom, I really miss Curly, I want to see him. When can I see him?"
Me: "Oh Noah, he is in heaven. We won't be able to see him for a long time. You have to die to go to heaven, and that won't happen for at least 80 more years, so it's gonna be a while."
Noah: "Mom, don't you know Jesus is coming to get all of us way before then! I'll just ask Him to take me to Curly!"
My child doesn't miss a beat!
