Death is not something Princess wants to hear about or discuss. She finds it very upsetting. As far as she is concerned we are never going to die. She knows that there are people in our lives who have died, but to her there is always a reason.
More recently we have discussed people who died for no other reason than that they were old. This got her thinking and a couple days ago she asked me if we were going to die. I thought about for a second and told her that it was complicated.
You see, I believe in reincarnation. I told her this and I told her that not everybody believes it. I told her that I believe our bodies die, but what's inside us doesn't. It goes into another body and starts over as a baby.
Princess turned to me and said, "Will you buy me the Winnie the Pooh potty when I'm a baby again? I really liked it."
