Walmart

Mommy and Bean are sitting in the family room playing trucks. Again.

Bean: "Why did Oscar go to be with God Mommy?"

Mommy: "Oscar was sick honey, so he went to be with God in heaven. He was a good kitty and we loved him very much didn't we."

Bean: "But God isn't in heaven anymore Mommy"

Mommy: "He isn't? Then where is God?"

Bean: "Walmart"

Mommy: (can't believe he picked Walmart. At least he could have picked Target.) "Oh really? God is at Walmart?"

Bean: "Yes Mommy. God is at Walmart."

Mommy: "Well, that's very philosphical of you. I guess God is at Walmart. He is everywhere."

Bean: "Can we go see God at Walmart Mommy?"

Mommy: "No, we can't go and see Him. You don't really see God, you just kinda know He is there."

Bean: (thinks on this for a moment. Mommy is sure she is going to have to explain the whole "don't see God but somehow believe he is there"concept. She is trying to remember her philospophy 101 class. Not prepared for this heavy conversation with her three year old) "Well, let's just go to Walmart to buy a toy truck then Mommy."

Mommy: (breathes a sigh of relief, though not sure that it is a good thing that her son's spirituality can be overshadowed so easily by toy trucks) "No Walmart today honey."
