  • first time around, we really didn't know HOW to choose, so we chose hub's brother, a junior in h.s. and my sister, just graduated from h.s. - the second time around, we got smart - the first set of godparents didn't treat our son special or observe his birthdays, holidays, etc. - we chose my aunt and uncle who worshipped the ground that our first son walked on - they treated him as if he were their own - my aunt was only 15 years older than i - we were more like sisters - when 1st son saw how 2nd son was being treated, he asked if he could have 2nd son's godparents - they WERE already treating him special - but we made it official - we just never bothered to tell hub's bro or my sister about it - they probably didn't even remember being chosen as godparents - lol

  • Dh and I were just discussing this. We both agree that you want to pick people who can take care of your kids if both of you pass. Where I come from a married couple is typically chosen by the parents to be godparents. Where he comes from the mom picks the godmother and the dad picks the god father.

  • We stuck to family members, because although you think a friend will always bee in your life you never know what will happen, but family is always there. As for the rest BluDog answered what I would say.
