Recently, my huby was asked to be ninong to 2 kids. Yung isa, anak of his former officemate in the Phils. whom we met again when we migrated abroad, no problem with that. The other one, anak ng former katrabaho namin here abroad. Nagulat kami when the later called and said that huby will be ninong to their kid. Huby was also admant to be ninong kasi nga hindi naman kami close. Sandaling panahon lang namin siya nakatrabaho. When I invited this former workmate pa nga sa binyag ng anak namin, hindi sya pumunta, no explanation whatsoever, although she said yes to the invitation naman.
Biniro ko pa nga sya, kasi she somehow hinted na marami naman daw ninong/ninang , so sabi ko, bakit mo naman naisipan kunin si huby ko.
Although syempre, kahit paano, honored si huby dahil napili sya ninong, pero somehow, hindi sya comfortable kasi nga parang casual friends lang naman. Naawa naman sya sa bata kung tatangi sya.
Now, sabay ang binyag ng 2 kids mentioned above, weeks or atleast 2mos before the actual binyag, friend1 from the Phils informed already. Friend2 informed us 2wks before the event, so we chose instead to go with the former.
This time, bday naman of the 2 kids, 2wks apart, we might not attend the party of friend2. Not bec. of anything else, parang hindi lang namin feel.
Kasi, when we had our kid baptized, pinili namin mabuti ang godparents. We only got family, relatives and very close friends. 3pairs lang nga eh. Kahit na nga may na meet na kami ibang tao thru work or yung pinakilala sa amin, wala kaming ibang kinuha as godparents.
I feel too, that minsan, pera-pera lang. These two families I mentioned here, ang daming godparents na kinuha. 6-10pairs yata eh, even more. I know its out my business din naman, pero sana lang, maging sensitive naman tayong mga parents when it comes to this issue. Hindi ba tayo nahihiya?
