Holidays...almost over.

I'm on holidays and I feel guilty about not posting... silly!!

I look at my stat section and it's crazy how views drop when you're not posting regularly..

I'm over it!!

So, I found myself with a dilemma tonight.. that's why I'm on.
I always come to my readers for advice.

My 3 year old has started asking about GOD... Yep!!
What do I do with that?

I was raised Catholic, and still hold on to many of the Catholic beliefs. That being said, there is a lot that I am ignorant to, don't understand,don't agree with etc..

I was surprised tonight when i couldn't answer the question "WHO IS GOD?"

I just kind of sat there staring at her,,, kind of panicking, wondering what in the heck I should say next.

My reply???

"Ummmm... you're going to learn all about that in school honey" (she is enrolled in a catholic school)

Her reply??

"Mommy? Is GOD like the Tooth Fairy?" (C'Mon! You have to admit, that is pretty smart for a 3 year old. Where did she pull that from?")

My reply??

"Yes honey,, I guess in a way, GOD is just like the tooth fairy."

"So, is God kinda like a ghost or an angel?"

ME: "Kinda" (DUH!! I'm not great with answers.)

HER: "So you think someone sorta threw God up there? That's how he died?"


For tonight, that was good enough. She was satisfied with that.

But my dear readers,, what do I say the next time she asks? Obviously she's going to inquire more!

I am ,what you would call spiritual, but not overly religious.
Yet, at the same time, I want my girls to have some sort of foundation when it comes to religion..

OH GOD gosh, What do I do from here? What do I say? What belief do I instill??

I know that this topic could get really heated, and really serious fast, so I'm going to end it here.
I just want your opinions, your suggestions.
What do I do? What do I say??

Answers are greatly appreciated!!!

LOL!! Ok I know I shouldn't be laughing but that is pretty friggin cute! My kids started in on me about "GOD" after watching a Veggy Tales movie on Netflix! "Who is that guy" "is he super fast" "does he have super powers?" My response, Here watch THIS Veggy Tales on the power of LOVE and GOD's Love, LOL! So, my response is probly not the best, but now my kids think God is a super hero with amazing Love powers, who can run faster than anyone / thing and, and watches over us in the clouds (which also brought up the question of "Where does he go when it is sunny?") And I am pretty sure the God / toothfairy thing came from Austin, he thinks they live together, perhaps they are common law? LOL! Good Luck, if you figure this out please let us all know!!
