i am a godmother!!!
sunday was a special day for me. not only did i skip my medication and thus avoided the ever occuring snot fest (oh, disgusting. a sinus infection is NO FUN and not intended to be presented at big family events) i also became a godmother. yay!
when i was asked about becoming max’s godmother about 8 weeks ago i was very humbled. it is a huge responsibility and chance. i was a little worried about the ceremony since it was a church event and i had no clue about how and if i would be included in the ceremony let alone what to say and when. but it worked out just fine.
max was a great sport and did not cry once during the 1.5 hour long church service. the party afterwards was with the other 2 godparents, family and friends. the only downside was that i was the only one there who did not have a child. i know i mentioned this a few times but geez, mothers (and fathers) why on earth is there no other topic you can talk about? i mean, i understand that some exchange about kids happens, that’s only normal. but oh my…that afternoon was kids/parents/pregnancy talk nonstop.
i know that many parents once they become parents change their circle of friends until it mostly consists of mothers and fathers just like them. so when you already have these friends why, upon meeting strangers and familiar faces alike, is it these same topics all over again? are diaper rash or breast feeding or nosebleeds really such insatiable topics of conversation?
i don’t mean to be rude to parents reading this post. i guess my mission is to show how exclusive a heard of parents can be sometimes.
anyways, back to the topic. i am a godmother, i need a godmother handbook that goes beyond giving presents! and even the giving present part i’m not doing well right now as i still did not finish the blanket that i planned for max. i my mind, as usual, it’s all ready. in real life…about a quarter done…lol.
