Will We Like Each Other?
I’ve been thinking a lot about my trip to NH next week for my niece’s baptism (although with my bad track record lately about actually publishing blogs, I might already be back home again lol) and taking my role as godmother seriously. I will definitely be blogging about that experience! I was pondering how this is a responsibility to watch over my sister’s child for the rest of her life. But then I was thinking as (I hope) most parents, aunts, uncles, godparents, etc might think about, what if I don’t like the baby? Obviously, as a few month old right now, there’s not much to like or dislike. But when she gets older. I would HOPE that as she gets a bit older, she grows into a child, and adult, a person that I like, just for her, not out of duty because I’m her godmother and aunt. I hope she is interesting and nice, but not in a goody goody too nice way. What do people do who don’t like the kids in their lives? That must happen… I doubt she’ll be the next Bad Seed or anything, but she could just be..annoying. Or even..what if SHE doesn’t like ME? A lot of people don’t… Obviously this is not something I NEED to worry about now. I swear, my mind just finds more and more things to worry about. I guess we’ll cross that bridge when we get to it, but it was just something to think about… It’s most likely she’ll be a great person anyway. Have any of you known someone who this has happened to?
