Braeden's baptism



On Sunday, Braeden was baptised into the Catholic Church. Given that he is 4 years old, he was pretty excited and he was hoping to meet God.

I couldn't deliver on the God part, but it was a really special ceremony and Braeden loved every part of it.

Why did we leave it until now?
Well, mostly because we just haven't had the time.
But, to be honest, the timing was actually really good, because we felt as though he actually understood what was happening. 
Despite Braeden being quite nervous (oh gee where does he get that from?), he really enjoyed being the centre of attention for once.

We were extremely proud of him.

    1. I agree, ritual and tradition does still have a role to play in society, it is a shame more people don't see that.
