As I’ve said before, Maddie and I have the best conversations in the bathtub. This one happened last night:

Maddie (pointing to my tummy): Do you have a baby in your tummy?

Me: Nope. You were the last baby I had in my tummy.

Maddie: What about Matthew?

Me: Matthew was in my tummy before you were.

Maddie: Is he still a baby?

Me: No. He’s almost 6 years old.

Maddie: What’s he doing right now?

Me: Well, he’s probably hanging out with Grandpa. Maybe they’re feeding cows right now.

Maddie (looking doubtful): But they don’t have farms in heaven.

Me: How do you know? Have you been there?

Maddie: Yes.

Me: When have you been to heaven?

Maddie: Whenever I close my eyes.

Me: And what do you see when you close your eyes?

Maddie: (grinning at me) Flying pigs! (laughs) And flying cows! And flying sheep!

So… what does heaven look like when YOU close your eyes?
