Rebirth

I think people aren’t reborn into the life cycle very often because they’re buried in coffins and their atoms get trapped. – Shayel (10)

Shayel’s thoughts on reincarnation. She believes reincarnation is the reintegration of our atoms into the life cycle and that while we’re not conscious of it, it’s an important part of the universe’s process. This is why she doesn’t want to be buried in a coffin or cremated.

Prostitute? errr…Protestant

Long back story but last night, I  clumsily attempted to explain to the girls what a prostitute is. Aliyah piped up “(best friend) is a prostitute!” Wait…um….err…what?! Fortunately, it dawned on me pretty quickly what she was trying to say because I know her friend pretty well and had already made some assumptions about her family so I quickly corrected, “Oh, protestant, you mean she’s a protestant. Like, a type of Christian.” “Oh yeah, a protestant. That’s what I meant.” I didn’t want to make her feel bad so I refrained from ROARING but man it was hard. Definitely a classic “kid’s say…” moment. David had to go around the corner to laugh.
