Not at all offensive! It seems like something that would be important, though. And I would really be sad if you felt like you couldn't talk about it. What's been going on? why are you more comfortable now?

Oh I dunno, its just a weird thing, especially with my family and some people i know, who think catholics are the"devil" or something.. and I get nervous talking about it.<br>
plus I dont like to discuss religion too much with people who dont share my belief.<br>
But I found a thread on MDC for catholics, and I just felt more able to like be "out" <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol"> about it.<br>
hahah.<br>
plus the more I learn and the further I go the more open I am to talk about it, cos I understand it more.<br><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile">

I think it's great that we can share what our spiritual thoughts are and we are soooo excepting of each other. It's awesome that we can share special moments of our life with this supportive community...

I can see that. religion is simply not an easy topic. I'm very interested in your thoughts, however. If you ever want to share them. I think this is a fairly "religion, whatever" type of community, but I still like to hear things outside of my beliefs. I'm very interested in what is going on to make you focus in on religion right now. So, if you want to talk about it, you will definitely have an audience.

My sister was born on 8-8-88. Pretty cool. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"><br><br>
Soooo...we just got back from the ER. E hurt her elbow/wrist. Yes, the dreaded nursemaid's elbow. Jimi was taking a shower with her and I hear the water shut off and she starts screaming. I thought it was because she wanted a bath too. So, I go in there and she is standing there crying just holding her arm. I can't touch it, she won't move it. More screaming. So, I get a diaper on her and some pants, and wrap a blanket around her.<br><br>
We take her to the ER, and the nurse tells us it's probably nursemaid's elbow, and they will just pop it back into place. I tell him I gave her some Rescue Remedy on the way. He has no idea what that is. Whatever guy. We sit in the waiting room, and she is putting a little pressue on her arm, and then it's fine. She's laughing and clapping.<br><br>
My girl fixed her own arm. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"> So, we tell them we don't need to be seen. Which they don't like because then they don't get $$$. We have to sign her out AMA. Nice.<br><br>
So, we're home and all is well.
