Our children have some interesting ideas on life.

Thumbelina: How do you die? (Pause) Do you just get punched really hard and it makes a hole? And then all the air comes out and you go flat like a pancake? And then you die into a skeleton? Is that how you die?

ET: (talking about his Show and Tell at school. He told his class about his Karate class.) I told a teeny tiny lie. (We asked him what he lied about.) I told them that at Karate we got to jump through hoops that were on fire.

Parental to do list:

1. Have a talk about death.
2. Have a talk about lying, and possibly fire safety.
