If you are a catholic, then you could understand me. On baby's christening, parents get their friends as a godmother or godfather. I have 35 godchildren to be exact, how about you?

I just have 2 godchildren. Most of my friends haven't married yet so probably later in life, I will be having more. I know that my mother has probably 50 or more. And I told her, no more...lol.

Well, I am not Catholic but I am familiar with the concept of godchildren. Thats wonderful that your friends have pick you to be a godparent to their children. Thirty-five is quite a few.

I have 41 godchildren and there are even some godchildren that I haven't seen ever. Some friends & cousins just call me and tell me that I would be a godmother and I could just send a proxy since they live in another country or region.

I only have one and it was so long ago I think she is 35 years old by now. Don't even know anything about her or where the heck she lives. I guess it was something that was not taken too seriously back then.

that means you owe her a lot of gifts. wait 'till she saw you, you need to pay her on those years without receiving anything from you. :) thanks!
