Me: My daddy's name is Jerry Lawson.
Maggie: Lawson? Like my GaGa! Where your daddy?
Me: You know--where is my daddy?
Maggie: In Heaben with Allie. What he have?
Me: He had cancer.
Maggie: Like my Allie! She have Kemia. Allie my baby. Allie your baby?
Me: Yes, Allie is my baby. Just like you're my baby too.
Maggie: Oh no, I not a baby. I a big girl!!
Variations to the normal conversation:
Maggie: Allie was a real person?
Maggie: Allie in Heaben a rweally long time. She coming back now?
Me: No, honey, Allie will stay in Heaven.
Maggie: I go to Heaben to see her and your daddy?
Me, Andrew, everyone else: Not until you're an old lady.
And a tough conversation back in September--
Maggie: Mama, all babies go to HEABEN!!
Me: Oh, no, baby. Not all babies go to Heaven. We know lots of babies and they aren't going to go to Heaven.
Maggie: Oh, just MY baby go to Heaben?
Me--complete silence as my heart breaks just a bit.
Maggie: Oh, I not an old lady. I a little girl.
