I Don't Suppose Zombies Recycle

I have the kind of six-year-old kid that can handle some deep kinds of adult discussions.

Or so I thought.

I don't know why, but last week during our date night, I mentioned seeing this cool urn idea where you can recycle your ashes and have a tree planted. I think we were discussing recycling. I told him that when people die, they don't need their bodies anymore, so why not grow into trees?

He paused and blinked for a bit and then I felt nervous thinking, crap, what have I just done to my six-year-old?!

He had this puzzled look on his face so I sheepishly said, "Well, what do you think about that."

He turned his head to the side looking completely perplexed and said, "So people just need their heads and their legs when they die?"

Meanwhile, Lucian continues to freeze off some major zombie butt in the app Plants vs Zombies. So much for a discussion on reincarnation.
(I tried to convince him to take his pink medicine for the ear infection by pretending it was a light saber that would defeat the germs.)
