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.
"Ummmm... you're going to learn all about that in school honey" (she is enrolled in a catholic school)
"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?")
"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?"
ME: "MAYBE" (I KNOW!)
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..
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!!!
