Dassy (4) asked me the other day
“Mommy, When are you going to die?”
I looked at her funny, like-where did this come from?
“Are you going to have another birthday?”
I told her my birthday was after Caleb’s.
And then she finishes up her train of thought with, “I want to go live with someone else now.”
So there you have it. My 4 year old is trying to kill me off already. She’s tired of living with me so she wants me to die so that she can go live with someone else. I’d be hurt, but I’m considering the source and I figure that if I can just get the rest of the kids to agree with her that there won’t be anything else keeping me here. (That’s “Longing” speaking, not “Depression”, just for the record.)
This is my Dad’s take on the idea of me dying. =)
You must file a permission form 3 years in advance of said action and the review process is anticipated to be equally long. Hence, you are looking at a minimum of 6 years before ‘right of death’ privileges can be processed. And then you can’t be sure you will receive approval of your intention to die.
