Do you have to wake them up everyday? What about if you're on vacation? Do you just say, "ok guys, I'm gonna be gone for a few days, so you're on your own"?  Sorry, I know that's a really random question, but I was just too curious not to ask.  Roll Eyes

I wake Sekhmet each morning and if I'm going on vacation I take Her with me.

Tonight we went to Wednesday Night Supper with my parents at their church.  I'm staying with my parents for the week, so out of respect for them, I've gone to church with them, etc.  It's just sitting in a building to me with no real spiritual meaning, but to them it's important, so... no big deal.  Well, my mom went for a walk with my son and she told me my son said to her "Memere, my mommy doesn't take me to church because she says the god is everywhere, not just in a building.  She says the god is in my heart and all around me so I don't have to go to a building to be with him."  So my mom told him, "well, yes, God is everywhere and in your heart, but we get together at church to talk about Him and be with other people."  So then my son says, "Well that's okay, but there's the goddess, too."

My mom said to me "I'm not touching that one..."

Honestly, I was impressed with my son for remembering what we'd talked about (he's 4) and very impressed with my mom not telling him that he was wrong or that I was wrong for telling him that.

I figure one day my son will come up with his own beliefs anyways, but it made me smile all around.

A friend of mine recently killed her 5-year-old's betta fish (it was an accident!) so they had to have a little funeral for it.  They're Christian, but the kid said that the fish couldn't go to heaven with the Christian god, he had to go to the water god.  So for the prayer every "our father" was replaced with "Neptune" and "art in heaven" was replaced with "under water."
*snicker* He's already infected with polytheism. Wink

that is pretty awesome that your mom didnt try to sway your kid towards her "god"


i know when i tell my family that i am a wicca (which path i have not picked yet) they might flip a lid even tho most of them belive in nothing

my grandmother who is very true beliver of one god now and forever will most likely die but before that will say i thought i brought you up better then that

You have the option of not telling /all/ your relatives. Personally I'm never gonna tell my crazy uber-Baptist grandmother that I'm not a Christian. She already thinks my family is going to hell for converting to Presbyterianism, and she thinks my Unitarian Universalist church is an offshoot of Catholicism. There is no reason for me to even try to touch my Pagan identity with a ten-foot pole.

My mom has only just in the past year finally at least realized that trying to "sway" me and my family is only going to push us away.  She's doing better.  I don't tell my grandparents.  Their beliefs are so personal to them it would hurt them.  What they don't know, won't hurt them.

Rowan is a plethora for this thread in and of himself.

So, yesterday, I was in my room and he was bouncing around in front of my altar. I said, "Hey, Rowan. Why don't you talk to the gods like Mommy does?"

He looked at the statues and said, "The gods. The gods. The gods." Then he babbles at them for a while. Or really, he was muttering, but I don't know what he was saying. I knew he was saying gods at points, but the words he was speaking was unintelligible to me. Then he says to them, "Do you really drink the milk?" since my offerings were still there.

"Yes, honey. The goddesses really are drinking the milk."

"Okay. No Rowan milk now." And he hopped down and went to play.
