Holy Mawy Mudda a God...
I think I will rot in hell because I do the same thing and laugh right along with her.
When my older one was that age she would start her prayers 'Lord Jesus, Heavenly Fun'. LOL!
I am a reluctant Catholic - born and raised. We didn't miss Mass unless we were certified dying. Every week - and even when we'd go camping up in the mountains we found a church to attend on Sunday. Most of it was terribly boring for me except that I loved to sing the hymns. I still do. Once a nun (back when the nuns wore penguin suits and sat at the back of the church and sang) gave me a teddy bear as she was walking up the aisle. I'm not sure why - perhaps I looked especially needy. I wanted to BE a nun for a little while but that didn't last long.
My oldest is in PREP class at the local Parish (we used to call it CCD). She had 1st Communion last year. We have interesting discussions about God and the Church and spirituality. I have some unconventional ideas about it all. Well - unconventional according to the Church. I have to specify that what I believe or question isn't necessarily the position of the Church. 'Now, don't go arguing with Sister about it at CCD', I tell her. They have a REAL Irish Sister there. I do love her but she doesn't take any crap off of anyone!
We don't attend Mass regularly but when we do go - I love it. The smells, the sights, the sounds, the tastes. It's the same no matter what Parish I find myself in.
So - when I'm feeling homesick or out of sorts it always helps to go to Mass. No matter how much I disagree with the Church (or agree - at times) I do realize that the basic belief is there because of my upbringing in the Church and it has sustained me in some mighty tough spots.
I want my girlies to have that strength to sustain them as they get older, too.
