R: We’re going to have a new president soon.
Me: That’s right.
R: Is it President Lincoln?
Me: No, he was president a long time ago and he died a long time ago.
R: Is it President Obama?
Me: Yes, President Obama is our president right now, but his turn is almost over and then we will need a new president.
R: President Obama will die.
Me: No, no, it’s just that his turn as president is over and someone else will take a turn.
R: And then he will die.
Me: No, no! He will just get another job.
R: He will be a worker?
Me: Um, yes.
R: And then President Lincoln will be the president?
Me: No! He died a long time ago. But he was a great president.
R: And Jesus was a great president too.
Me: Hey, who wants a snack?!
