Conversations about death with an almost 4 year old

Riverview Cemetery (Portland, Oregon) is where Owen's grave is... It's fairly close to our house, so we pass by the entrance on our way to other places pretty often.

Today, as we passed by, BigBro asks, "Are all other people's babies at the funeral home?"

Me, "There are lots of other people's babies in the cemetery, but not all babies go there."

BigBro, "How come not all?"

Me, "Well, only babies that die go there. Most babies don't die, so they get to go home from the hospital."

BigBro, "So, it's all people's babies that died that go there?"

Me, "Yes."
