godparents?

Before my daughter was born I asked a good friend of mine to be my daughters godmother and she accepted. My daughter is now 2 1/2 but we are waiting until our other one is born in 2 months so we can get them baptised together. Yesterday I started thinking about how my friend and I arent that close anymore. If we do talk its me starting the conversation. We live 3 hours away from each other so its mainly talking on facebook or texting. I started thinking that maybe I should ask someone else to be her god mother or ask my friend if she still even wants to be her god mother. To me it just seems weird to have her as my daughters godmother when we hardly even speak. What do you ladies think?

but just be honest, and upfront tell her you know you asked her 3 years ago and you love her, but feel maybe there is a distance now physical and emotional and hope she understands.

Ask family. A friend asked me years ago and i accepted, needless to say their is a teenager out there that doesnt have an active godparent. With mt kids i chose a godparent from my side of the family and one from my husbands. Works out great and the kids gett to be close to their godparents.

Honestly, ask whoever you want. I've never found it to really matter who my kids god parents were. If it weren't for my husbands superior memory, I wouldn't even know whos is whos.

I don't talk to my god mother because it was my mothers mom's friend and my god father is my uncle and he lives in CO and I am in CA

Well we talked about it tonight and she even agreed that she doesnt have much of a relationship with my daughter. My daughter barely knows her. I'm happy it worked out.

Ask yourself would even show up to the baptism if she wasnt godmother?

Once baptised her godparent is for life; personally I would select another person.
