I know this is a quiet list, but I was hoping not to have to post to Parenting101 for feedback.

How do you deal with it when your kid says potentially creepy stuff? Does your kid say creepy stuff?

Max say stuff like: I don't want to grow any more. I don't want to be 5. I don't want to get big. I'm never going to grow up.

I know intellectually that this is natural pre-K transitional fear, and I know intellectually he's not trying to tell me that he knows he's going to die in his sleep, but whenever he says anything like this I just want to hug him and stay awake staring at him all night to keep him safe.

It makes me sad that he isn't looking forward to growing up but it also makes me worry in some spooky creepy "maybe he knows something" way and I'm not getting over it.

Anyone been through this?

I had to laugh. Our 7 year old says things that makes us pause a moment before we inwardly giggle at her "seriousness". Last week she told us that she hoped I died and went to heaven before her daddy. She wasn't being ugly in the least. She was just letting us know she wants to see us both in heaven one day and, besides, she's always been a daddy's girl. :)
Don't think anything of it when they come out with their little gems. Just be happy that you provide an enviroment where they can be totally honest with their feelings...both good and bad. :)
