Monsoon was a bit of an emotional mess most of today - lack of sleep, busy schedules and time away from home in the last 3 days. He kept bursting into tears at the smallest things. Trying to wind down a bit, we read some books, but then he broke down again while I held him tight, and we laid down on the couch together for a quick rest before dinner. I have no idea where this came from, but he had been acting all day like something was weighing on his mind, and this was the conversation he started:
Monsoon: "What if there were no people on Earf?" (Earth).
Me: "Where would all the people be?"
Him: "With God."
Me: (caught off guard) "Well, then that's what would happen."
Him: "But I don't want you to go with God."
Me: "Why not?"
Him: "I will miss you."
Me: "Yes, but we will all be with God together." (still haven't quite regained composure from the sudden topic of interest)
Him: "But I will be all alone if I go with God."
Me: "Honey Pot, you will never be lonely when you go with God."
Him: "But what if he forgets you and daddy?"
Me: "God never forgets, Honey Pot."
Him: "People forget?"
Me: "Yes, people forget."
He just seemed so... burdened. You may not find it as endearing as I did, but I felt compelled to post it. I have no idea where it came from or what he was thinking exactly.
Sanity or Patience: choose one.
Do you ever have one of those moments where you think, "HA! I am sane!" Then you step in dog poo with your bare feet and remember it was your idea to get the puppy...?
