theological lesson squandered

“Here’s your cough medicine, son.”
“Mommy, does the cough medicine go into my heart?”
“Well, yes, it gets in your bloodstream and the blood goes to your heart.”
“But mom, Jesus is in my heart.  Does that mean He gets the cough medicine too?”

What would you say if your five-year-old said this?  I might have thought of something better to say had it not been very late already.  (After 8 pm!)
I said (sigh,) “Honey, that’s a good question, but it’s late, go to bed.”
And I walked down the hall laughing.
