Of course you must know that I absolutely adore Rosie Pope for a number of reasons, but I was particularly endeared to her on last night’s episode of Pregnant in Heels because we watched the painful experience of her going to a speech therapy. As I’ve shared with you in the past, I endured 3 and a half years of speech therapy and elocution lessons just so I could speak American English. Lest you should think it easy, it is not, and when I’m particularly tired or excited, I slip right into old patterns.
As I’ve also shared with you in the past, members of my family, including and especially my father, an earl, and my brother, the current earl, are often asked to be a child’s GodParent and they are always especially honoured to do so, for once you are the GodParent of a child, you get to have a special and life-long bond with that child. In case you missed it, here’s my post on my father.
On last night’s episode, soon-to-be parent, Janay asked for Rosie’s help in selecting the best GodParent for her coming baby girl. Janay was conflicted…should she choose her sister, a teacher and parent herself, or her best friend, a girl short of patience, but young and fun. Whilst I didn’t agree with the method of having the women compete against each other, it did seem to steer mom Janay to her final conclusion. The result, her best friend would be the GodParent, whilst her sister could share a unique bond with the child as her auntie.
Please see Rosie’s website, where she’s aligned with an Extate Planning attorney to contribute to her blog who will help guide expectant parents of the task of selecting a Guardian for their children. Guardianship and GodParentship are two different animals, but in the Janay case, she was wanting the GodParent to play both roles.
