So J and I watched the above movie on Disney Chanel tonight. At the beginning of the movie, the kids ghosts are doing fun tricks. You will never believe what came out of his mouth!
"Wow Mama, I wanna be a ghost for Halloween."
Me: "Sure, we can do that."
"No, no costume, I jus' wanna be a REAL ghost. I don't want a mask or anything."
Me: "Well, that's going to be a hard sell without a costume."
"No, I wanna be a REAL ghost. I wanna go outside, stand in the street get hit by a car and be dead. Then I will be a real ghost and I can do those fun trick!"
Then I picked myself up off the floor. I calmly (as calm as I could be under the circumstances) explained that if he got dead there is no coming back. No more Mommy hugs, or ice cream, or school, or anything. Thankfully, in the movie the kids are really missing their parents, so I think he got the point.
Then at bedtime I explained that only God decides when, where, and how we die. And that if you decide it for yourself, and do something to make yourself die on purpose, you will not go to Heaven. You will not get to go and live with Jesus, and God.
Do you think I explained it right? I am pretty freaked out about it.
