Hi Spirit and everyone else!
I've been on these Mothering boards for quite a while. I used to visit here in the spirituality boards, but haven't been here for quite some time. I really need to come here more often.
I've been pagan for several years, but it's a slow learning process for me. I have no teacher, just myself. My husband is pagan as well, but we do not work well together. Lately, I've not been doing much ritual. I've been concentrately on being a mommy for the first time (dd is 13,1/2mo now) and moving. But I'm being drawn back to the path recently. I did a simple wiccaning ritual (or naming ritual) for my dd for her 1st b-day.
I think dd is going to grow up with ritual. The first time I did a ritual after she was born was for Samhain. Verona (dd) went down to sleep and I readied the ritual. Then I checked on Verona one last time and she was bright-eyed and wondering what was going on. So she joined me for the ritual. Also, every time she has been present for a ritual, she also nurses during the cakes and wine part.
So anyway, just thought I'd say hi to everyone. Maybe I should go to the intro thread and do a formal intro.
