Mommy, why?

The mind of a four year will make you laugh, make you shrug, leave you speechless and make you really creative when it comes to answering the utmost question~why?

I have often hesitated when my four year old asks, mommy...what do you do at work? When she was three I said, "your mommy is a professional hugger...." I was pretty darn proud of myself for coming up with such a sweet explaination until my husband said it kind of sounded like a hooker. Well ... that's just great.

So one of the many conversations have gone like this:

"mommy, why do you go to work?"
I go to work to help people sweetie

"Well, what do you do?"
I help people who have died

"what does died mean?"
Well, it means they leave their bodies and get to heaven

"I want to go to heaven!"
not yet baby, it's not your time

"Mommy, I don't like to take turns!!"

And the latest (and greatest in my opinion....)

Overheard by my daughter's teacher~
"What does your mommy do at her work Emma?"
"She helps people"
"Oh!! She's a SUPERHERO!!?" hahaa
