alright well basically this is gonna be about choosing god parents. I have 3 really great frieds that I grew up with and would like to chose one of them to be the godmother. But when me and ma bf picked ma friend Lisha, ma friend Steph got soo upset and she had an attutide with me, all like " umm why did u pick her? she cant do it as good as I can" and I jus found it ridiclous.. and den I told her mine and ma bf's reasons.. so everythin was kool for awhile. and then steph proceeded a few days later on asking why again. I again gave our reasons. And now she is sayin that no matta wat next time I get pregnant that she wants to be the godmom, doesnt matta wat me and ma bf say.

if u can help me or give me some advice on this I would def. apperciate it, or u have been or someone u kno has been in this simiular position feel free to let me kno.. thanks

its hard to choose between close friends. But ultimately its your choice and you want to pick a person that is going to raise your children the same way or close to the same way that you yourself would raise your own child in case something ever happened to you. I honestly dont know what you should say to her because no matter what she says your mind isnt going to change. You picked the person you want to be the godmother and she should respect your decision. Good luck!!

OK, this is dependent on what you actually want a godmother for, but what about having all 3 be godmothers?
Now if you want a godmother in the traditional sense, as in stading up in Church with you and pledging to o0versee the child's religious path, you may have to discuss this with your church leader first.
If you want a godmother in the guardian sense, to raise her if something happened to you, then obviously this would not work. But I'm betting you have family who would raise the baby if you couldn't, it rarely falls to the godparents to raise the child unless specified in a will.
If you want a godmother simply in the symbolic sense, to be like a special "auntie" to the baby, then there's really no reason he/she can't have more than 1. I have 2 godmothers and a godfather, it's great for me, sure got spoiled at holidays and birthdays
If it's going to cause too much of a rift, maybe your best bet would be to have neither, but choose a family member instead.
Good luck whatever you decide to do.

umm this isn't exactly the board to be asking this question,, they are probably other boards that could help you out more.. .

I agree with picklesmama of the idea of having 3 godmothers,,, because more often the child goes to family anyways,, so they could all be special to your child.

I also agree with the other ladies, you could have more than one godmother for your baby, I think that would be special and eliminate a lot of conflict, anyways, no matter what you decide, GL!
