Congrats!!! Personally, I think the odd special day put with my Godson means a lot to him (and his parents!) as well as visiting/seeing him regularly so he and I have a good relationship as he grows up!!! Also, come the milestone birthdays I'm sure he'll e looking forward to a nice present off me!!!
Its lovely you are thinking about this. As its a religious role, perhaps taking him to church and spending time with him on religious holidays etc. Supporting his spiritual development and being there for key moments in his life.
Yesterday myself and my husband became Godparents to our wonderful Godson which was a great honor. He is only 10 months old and as I see it our role starts now. I was wondering what other Godparents do to mark/encourage this special relationship. Leaving aside the religious aspects for the this post we had ideas such as always making sure we take him out on the anniversary of his Christening, special trips, putting something away for his future...
I was just interested in what other people do or would do?
