6 Year-old Son
3 Year-old Daughter
Setting: The back seat of my car.
3YOD: (looking out the window) I like that park. It's pretty. I wish I could play there.
6YOS: (world-weary and wiser) That's not a park. It's a cemetery.
3YOD: What's a cemeberry?
6YOS: A graveyard.
3YOD: What's a graveyard?
6YOS: It's where they bury dead people.
6YOS: Because they died.
6YOS: When a person dies they put him in a grave in that yard.
3YOD: What's a grave?
6YOS: It's a hole in the ground. They put the dead person in a box and put it in the hole.
3YOD: (delighted comprehension) Oh! And that's where they turn into zombies!
