One more time

As the children are going to sleep, they talk about being born. Bo tries to remember something of when his little sister Peggy was born.

They both ask how big their cousin was when she was born prematurely. Bo asks whether the incubator had water in it, like a womb. Peggy can’t remember seeing her cousin in the incubator. She says her cousin believes that when you die, you’re born again. “If that’s true, then maybe I’ll see her as a baby again.”

“Maybe I’ll have this day again. Maybe I’ll have that moment when I scream again. Maybe I’ll have that moment when there was no candy floss at the fair again. Maybe I’ll have this moment cuddling up with you again.”
