decided my friendship with DS's godmother is at an all-time low, not sure how to maintain a friendship with her now

I've recently had a series of let-downs by DS's god mother who I've known for 15 years or so. She's not someone I now have anything in common with and backed up by how she has left me feeling of late (I shan't go into detail) I am ready to not keep up with her anymore.

I asked her to be god-mother 2.5 years ago as a sign of how long-standing our friendship was and also to rejuvinate her position on my life (and my families). However it's been one-sided and I'm nigh on done with her now.

My question is; where do I go given she is DS's godmother?

Does anyone have any experience of falling out with their chosen god-mothers over time?

What happened then?

I asked my supposed best friend to be my dd1's godmother when I was pg with her. Once I had dd, she just really didn't bother and only saw her twice in four months. I was the one doing all the running for our frienship and I just felt like it had been this way for a while so I stopped contacting her and have never spoken to her since.

Slightly different to you as she never actually got to be godmother and your friend is. I wouldn't lose any sleep over it - she obviously has other things happening that have proved to you where you stand with her. i presume you have other people you can rely on should anything happen to you, where your ds is concerned.
