While we were walking home from school the other day, Hayden asked me "What do you think you will come back as someday after you die?".
Hmmm. Curious that we are already thinking about our existence after death at the age of 9. Must be about the age that mortality starts to register in their conscience. So our conversation went something like this:
Me: Well, I have always wanted to be an otter. I think that is what I would choose.
Hayden: Oh. I want to be a tiger or a panther. But I don't want to live where they hunt tigers.
Me: Yeah. That wouldn't be good. I suppose you could always live where there aren't any hunters. You might be safe that way. Or you could be a panther and live in the jungle.
Hayden: I could do that. I promise not to try to eat you Mom. Maybe you could try to remember that it's me as a tiger and remind me so I don't eat you!
Me. That would work. I'll just point at a different otter and tell you to eat them, since I don't know who they used to be.
Silly conversation. But it was fun to be goofy and talk about it while we walked home. He also thinks he will be a super cute tiger cub. I asked what would happen if he wasn't a cute cub and his mom kicked him out of the den. He said he would just go get squished or something so that he could come back as a cute one.
There's a thought process for you!
