More Questions I Can't Answer

Mitchie: Do people grow in Heaven?

Mommy: (picking him up, giving him a hug) I don't know, Honey. I wonder if Gabriel grows up or stays just like a baby. (long pause as I think about the other babies and search for the right words) What do you think?

Mitchell: No. Because I don't want people to make fun of me for wearing diapers in Heaven.

And he's off to play again, with a fresh diaper on his five year-old bottom.

These kind of conversations melt me and freak me out at the same time, and not because I am worried about Mitchell wearing diapers forever. That is the least of my worries.
