A Little Pagan Parenting Humor

A letter from a 3rd grade teacher sent home to Pagan parents:
By: Ld Obyron Irondrake

Dear Mr. and Mrs. Thomas, I write this letter in concern of your daughter,
Aradia Moon. Please don't take this the wrong way, however, although she is
a straight A student and a very bright child, she has some strange habits
that I feel we should address.

Every morning before class, she insists on walking around the classroom with
her pencil held in the air. She says she is "drawing down the moon." I told
her Art Class is in an hour and to please refrain from then to do any
drawing. And speaking of Art Class, whenever she draws a night sky, she
insists on drawling little circles around all the stars and people dancing
on the ground. And that brings up dancing, I had to stop her twice for
taking off her clothes during a game of Ring Around the Rosey! By the way,
what does the term "skyclad" mean?

Aradia has no problem with making friends. I always find her sitting outside
during recess with her friends sitting around her in a circle. She likes to
share her juice and cookies. It is nice how she wants no one to ever thirst
or hunger. However, when I walked over to see what they were doing, she
jumped up and told me to stop, pulled
out a little plastic knife and started waving it in front of me. I thought
this was a bit dangerous, so I took her to the Principal's Office. She
explained to the Principal that she was opening the Circle" to let me in.
She also said that her Mommy and Daddy always told her not to play or run
with an "athame" in her hand, that she could put someone's eye out. I don't
know what an "athame" is, but I am glad that she keeps it at home.

As for stories, your daughter tends to make up some whoppers. Just yesterday
while I was talking sternly to Tommy Johnson and shaking my finger at him,
he started screaming and ran from the room. When I finally caught him, he
told me that Aradia told him and the rest of the class that the last time I
shook my finger at someone, they caught the chicken pox. I explained to him
that the Sally Jones incident was just a coincidence, and that things like
that don't really happen.

One of the strangest things that happened was when I asked the children to
bring in Halloween decorations for the classroom. Aradia brought in salt,
incense and her family album. I see she has quite a sense of humor. One of
Aradia's worst habits is that she is very argumentative. We were discussing
what the Golden Rule was (Do Unto
others as you would have them Do Unto You) she firmly disagreed with me and
stated it was "Do As You Will, but Harm None" and she will not stop saying
"So Mote It Be" after she reads aloud in class. I tried to correct her on
these matters and she got very angry. She pointed her finger at me and
mumbled something under her breath.

In closing, Mr. and Mrs. Thomas, I would like to set up a parent/teacher
conference with you sometime next week to discuss these matters. I would
like to see you sooner, but I have developed an irritating rash that I am
quite worried about.

With Deep Concerns,
Mrs. Livingston
P.S. Blessed Be. I understand that this is a greeting or closing from your
country that your daughter informs me is polite and correct
