My Godchild

I am not sure if I mentioned this on my blog yet but my best friend is pregnant with her first child. I am so excited for her as I know this is something she's wanted for a very long time. She is having a boy which is also something she wanted. Of course all mothers are happy with whatever they are gifted with but I was happy she got what she hoped for.

When she told me she was pregnant I had to keep it a secret for awhile because she was waiting until she was past the first trimester before telling anyone. Right away though she told me something very special. She told me that she talked to the father and said that they wanted me to be the Godmother. Even though I'm not a religious person she wants me to hold that special title. I think of it as more of a special person in their life that is there to be an extra mentor and support for the child.

I've been doing a little shopping here and there to pick out things for the baby. This week she got one of my gifts in the mail. I sent her some of my favorite classic children's books. I sent: "Little Critter Collection Book", "The Hungry Caterpillar" and "Where The Wild Things Are". I explained that I wanted to share my love of books with the baby. It's my hope that they will snuggle as a family and read together. She told me yesterday she's already reading the books to the unborn baby which melted my heart. I also sent her my all time favorite book "Love You Forever" by Robert Munsch. It should arrive on Wednesday. That book always brings tears to my eyes. I also now know it's her favorite as well.

All this baby talk makes me think about the future. When I am cruising through the baby aisles and see all the expectant mothers glowing while picking out pieces for their new babies I can't help but smile. I wish I could be closer to my friend to help her out more. I'm in QC and she's in AB. I try to msg her a lot and let her know that I'm thinking of them. I'm just so happy for her.


  1. Love all the books you chose for her... they're keepers! Love you forever is a tear jerker!! *sniff* I'm sure she'll cherish them for years to come!

  2. Oh, I'm so excited for both your friend and you! Great book choices!

  3. I love "Love You Forever." It makes me cry everytime.
