We had a funny little conversation today in the car.
Esme: Eloise believes in Jesus.
Me: ummm, ok....
Me: She just does, it's what her Mummy and Daddy believe too. It's their religion, they're Christians. Christians are a group of people like the Seikhs and the Buddhists, they just believe different things. (We've visited a Gurdwara and the local Buddhist Centre quite recently)
Esme: Are we Christians?
Me: Well, not really.
Esme: Oh. Well, can I believe in Jesus?
Me: If you want to, it's up to you to decide what you believe. But you might like to learn a bit more about other religions before you decide. There's no hurry really....
Esme: What is your religion Mama?
Me: Well, I don't really have one. I suppose I might be closest to a Buddhist.
Esme: I think......I think I'm an Artist.
Me: Y'know what Es, you definitely are an artist.....
