Art Linkletter would have loved this one

My 4-year-old granddaughter, Talia, has suddenly taken an interest in discussing death.  (My daughter thinks this is prompted by the requisite scary parts of any Disney movie, especially "The Lion King.")  Our daughter is now explaining, at a 4-year-old's comprehension level, various beliefs about death and what happens, or does not happen, afterwards.

Simultaneously, our grandson started potty training.  Our DD's tried and trued method of potty training involves rewards, including M&Ms (for trying) and small prizes (for successes).  Talia announced that potty training was really fun and she wishes she could be potty trained again.

The next day, Talia told her mom that she has decided to believe in reincarnation.  Her reasoning?  She would come back as a baby, grow up to be 3, then get to be potty trained again - and have M&Ms!!!!

Yes, Art, kids really do say the darndest things!
