I still don't even agree with the decision that I made some days. It is what it is though.
The main reason that we decided to go with this school is because her older 2 cousins go there. I knew that they would watch out for her and if she ever needed anything they would both be right there.
The second reason was because I really do think that its a good thing to give her some sort of religious start.. A base.. When she gets older she can decide what she believes and what she doesn't.
Anyway, Gracie is in a Catholic school system, and I have to say, it's pretty darn cute.
She comes home saying little prayers, singing little songs, and it's super cute..
I've also learned that this can work to my benefit..
While in Walmart a few weeks ago (Don't Judge, they had good sales) we were
I was literally trapped between shoppers who were too busy "price matching" to notice that I needed through.. too busy to hear my polite "excuse me".
At that time, Gracie, like a gift from God, started singing "HALLELUJAH, PRAISE THE LORD", out loud!
That sure got their attention.. I was a little embarrassed, but couldn't help but laugh. As I looked around at the shoppers, i saw some smiles, a scowl, and one lady was looking at us like we had 3 heads..
Within seconds, a path was made for us to continue with our shopping and as we walked away, Gracie finished up with "In the name of the father, the son, and the holy spirit, AMEN!"
PRICELESS!! She couldn't have had any better timing..
It was that day that I decided I'm very happy with my decision. Not because she can save me in horrible shopping situations, but because it's really cool that at 3.5 years old, she can already pray to God. I don't care what anyone says, that is a great thing to have.
I have a feeling we'll have some more moments of religious comedy, and if they get really good, I'll start a separate page for it, but I'll end with my favourite one to date:
The other day, Gracie was telling me that she had new prayers. When I asked her to say one for me, this is what she said..
"THANK YOU GOD FOR GIVING US LOVE
THANK YOU GOD FOR GIVING US LOVE
HALLELUJAH, PRAISE THE LORD.
IN THE NAME OF THE FATHER, THE SON,
AND THAT HOLY MAN.....
I'M SEXY AND I KNOW IT" (breaks out dancing)
(Thank GOD she didn't sing "wiggle, wiggle, wiggle, wiggle, wiggle) (For those of you that know the song, and or video, you'll understand that comment)
Yep, we're going to fit in with the catholic system perfectly!!
Have a great day ladies!!
