Heaven...But Not Yet

Little Middle has been asking lots of deep questions lately. It's tough to explain God, heaven, and the like to a 4-year-old! Here's a snippet from today's Q-and-A:
Little Middle: Mommy, when I go to heaven, will I be an angel?
Me: I don't think so, baby. God already has all the angels He needs. You know what you will get, though? The Bible says that when we get to heaven we get a brand new body that will always be strong and never get sick. Won't it be great to have a new body?
Little Middle: I don't want that body. I like the body I already have, because I can run fast like Dash Incredible.
Little Middle (a little later on): Mommy, can I walk on the clouds in heaven?
Me: I don't know, buddy. I do know that the Bible says there are streets made out of gold in heaven. I bet they're pretty, huh?
Little Middle (singing a la Kenny Chesney): Everybody wants to go to heaven...but nobody wants to go now.
