  • Just ignore it. Im sure the kid didnt mean anything by it. Kid's often have no clue of the concept of the passage of time, or how long life really is.

  • LOL. My 8yo daughter told my dad when he died she was getting his room. She was 6 or 7 at the time. It was hilarious. My dad was like, "man, you've already got me half in the grave." The kids then argued over who got his room if he died and who got his TV.

  • Tell her that you are leaving her with all your bills because you are spending your money before you die.
