for those that are a god parent or who have a god parents for their children. is this weird?
What i find strange is 1) in my culture it is rude to ask someone to baptize their child. The parents should select and ask you. 2) she actually gets upset if you already have god parents chosen for your baby. Im Puerto Rican and its very common for there to be two sets of god parents for a child. One is a home baptism where a priest comes to the home and does it when the child is between 1-3 mths of age and the other set are in the church itself and are documented as the god parents. Well i have three sisters, one is the god mother of my oldest and i chose another one to be the god mother in the church for my youngest. My sister is in her forties, is not married and has no children. She loves and adores my kids as if they were her own. She was a huge help during my pregnancy and even traveled to a diff state when i was in the icu on life support. So i chose her to be my youngest god mother in the church...but because my friend asked me i told her she could baptize my son in the home. She got pissed off and said that it didn't really count and didn't want to do it. The man i chose to be the god father for my son is deployed with my husband so we had to cancel the baptism until they return...and she suggested we do the baptism with my sister and her. Wtf? Am i the only one that finds this strange? Like she's only asking just to have the title? Oh..also one of my in laws is pregnant right now and she again asked this one if she could baptize her baby.
