Conversations in the Odyssey

James:  Mommy?

Me:  Yes love?

James:  When I die, I'm going to turn into a girl.

How do I respond to that???

James is very concerned about mortality lately, both his and those around him.  We're getting lots of questions like "Mommy, when will I die?" or "Mommy, how will I die?"  I tell him I don't know - and it's not up to us to know. 

Of course that doesn't satisfy my son - the boy of a gazillion questions. 

One thing is for certain, we clearly need to arrange more play dates with boys - as he is influenced so much by his older sister that he thinks he wants to turn into a girl.
