When you’re dead….

“When you’re dead” She said with a straight face, calmly eating her breakfast.

“When you’re dead..”

“when I’m dead? You want me dead?!”

“Noooo, when you’re an old granny and then you’re dead, and daddy is an old granny and he’s dead”


“Then I’m be bigger”, And here she began to smile, ” I can watch Barbie life in the dream house as much as I want”

Cue big grin.

Yeah, she knows those are the only conditions that will allow her watch that show in this house.

Kind of weird though, your child nearly longing excitedly for your death.
