Hello! And here I thought this blog was done! Well, it is, mostly, but it is a nice and safe place to post about this without bothering all the non religious members of the boards.
Anyways, I'm still on the middle of the crisis that started it all, although I think I can see a light at the end of the tunnel. We've found a nice church to attend on sundays, although we still struggle with actually going. The latest plan is to leave Fede with my parents and try to get Julia to fall asleep (she still refuses to stay with others other than DH and me) before the mass so we can actually concentrate on what is going on vs. chasing two toddlers. Not to mention to actually make room on the weekend schedule for mass... (sigh!)
I suppose I still have a long way to go, but I am taking baby steps.
During this time I realized that although I have been praying almost daily, I haven't been teaching my kids to pray, or even the existence of God. I bought Fede a kid's bible about a year ago, but he doesn't have the attention span for the stories, and instead looses concentration and starts commenting on the animals and people on the pictures. It's really frustrating!!!
And when on prayer, I get the feeling he doesn't understand what we are doing, and I can't find a way to explain to a 3 year old about Someone he can't see.
How are you handling this with your little ones?
