Time flies when you are preggers. :D

Well ladies it's been too long since my last post and for that I apologize. We are reaching the end of our pregnancy journey and little baby Chloe May Soleil is now a mere 3 weeks away. So much has happened in such a short period of time.

One thing I would like to share is something that came up a few months ago between my partner and I. He has no particular faith or religious belief and he overheard me talking to my best friend and fellow priestess about a baby registry for my baby woo shower. I am having a Yule celebration/ baby wicca shower with my girls :). He overheard me creating my amazon reigstry with her. In case you are curious lol here is what my woo registry looks like: http://www.amazon.com/gp/registry/registry.html?ie=UTF8&type=baby&id=17VX1HKQQKMLC After she and I stopped giggling, had created the registry and hung up he asked me what I had been doing.

Back when we first began dating we had discussed our religious differences and had agreed that we would ultimately allow our children to decide what journey was right for them, and what path they wanted to follow. He, however, had thought that meant we would not teach them any religious belief system and let them find one later in life. In my mind I had thought that I would raise them Pagan, as he had no preference, and if later they themselves choose a different path then so be it.  We talked about this for quite some time and he did agree that he would be fine with her being given a base of understanding of Paganism as long as I would allow her to choose ultimately later on for herself. This I felt was more then fair.

We are lucky in that we communicate very effectively together and for the most part on big issues such as this always seem to find a mutual understanding and agreement. It made me realize however how difficult this conversation would have been if he were less open minded or had himself a very devout but different religious belief then myself. Creating and blending a family can be complicated. The discussion again reminded me of how blessed our family truly is. Our little witchlet has a lot of love and support coming her way.

Blessed Be,
Kanani )O(
