Pearly Gates

It has been a long time since I have shared a story about my crazy kids. Tonight, as were driving home from the base, my 7 year old daughter asked me a question.

"Mom, when you go to heaven, do they give you a choice on if you want to live another life?"

"Well, some religions believe in reincarnation, but we don't so I would say no. Why are you asking?" I inquire.

"Just wondering. I was hoping I could come back to life as a boy," she states matter-of-factly.

"Why is that?" I ask, thinking perhaps she wants to help fight inequity in the gender gap, or do something her 7 year old mind thinks that only boys can do.

"Just because I want to see the inside of the boys' bathroom."

Looks like the Nobel Prize I hoping she would earn in her next life is out the window.

What a totally logical child. Have your hubby sneak her in to a "boys"bathroom when there is no one in it so she doesn't have to wait. LOL! too funny

Oh that is soooo funny. I took my friends daughter to the doctor the other day and while we were sitting there waiting, she shook her head and sighed as only a six year old can, and said "I feel sorry for my doctor" I asked her why and she said "I bet sometimes she has to look at boy's fannys". Where do they come up with such funny thoughts!

LOL! Too funny. She has never made the "oops" mistake of walking into the wrong bathroom yet! Good for her because it is very embarrasing!
