Okay, that one looks like a live wire...bet she keeps you and your mom on your toes! That sparkle in her eyes...I bet she is a handful.

See here they are, the bruises, some were self-inflicted and some showed up along the way. - JF

Oh ok. What would their mother have them do? If they are going to be going back with her, then I think doing whatever their mother would have them do is probably the least confusing.

I don't think Christy cares much, She really only goes to church when she starts to feel guilty. It's all really rather hard because my aunt is around my brothers age so I tend to look at them more nieces than cousin. Christy uses just about any excuse to wiggle out of being a parent. Sometimes I think subconsciously she wanted the fired happen. Or do you suppose I'm being cruel now?

I figured as much, a mom can spot that trait pretty accurately. Jazzy is a great name for a kid like that!

I can't really have an opinion on that since I don't know her at all. I guess if your mother is really set on punishing them for not praying and you're really not interested in arguing the point with her, then I don't think it would really hurt them to say grace. We have a little song my kids sing for "grace" when religious family insists on it. They think it is fun and I don't think it is hurting them any. I could be wrong. I'm sure some people would say I'm wrong for letting my kids say grace to a fake god just to appease my family, but I think it's best to keep the peace.

RE: Children and Prayer
Jazz-Marie I don't really worry much for not only is she too young understand truly but that little hellion is all fire and independence. She has punched me in the eye (and managed to leave a bruise) a fair few times at the words "nap" and "bath". It's sweet Lily I worry for, though she's picking up that 9 year old smart assery I'd expect Jazz can still make her cry. Shes just so darling and earger to please. She is a little too easily influenced for my liking. But maybe she'll grow out of it.

Actually I think it's a perfect setup. They're both going to learn a lot from each other. Thumbsup

RE: Children and Prayer
It's up to their parents really, your mother should butt out of the issue, and unfortunately you can't really enforce or prevent anything. If you feel the parents would disapprove of the prayers you should tell them, and your mom should respect their wishes.

That explains a lot.

Bury me with my guns on, so when I reach the other side - I can show him what it feels like to die.
