I love this phrase. Mostly because I’m lazy. Ok. Completely because I am lazy. I want to write about Y but it is Saturday and I have a Baptism to attend in a few hours where I will play the role of Faux Godmother. Haven’t you always dreamed of being a Faux Godmother? Oh! You haven’t heard of a Faux Godmother. Well, in the Catholic world you have a Godmother and a Godfather. At least one of them has to be Catholic. In the event one of your Godparents can not attend the actual Baptism, it is best to pick a proxy. A proxy is another Catholic who stands in and acts as the missing Godparent. My friend’s sister-in-law cannot be present to perform her duties so I have been called upon to be a proxy. I don’t like the word proxy too much so I’ve dubbed myself the Faux Godmother. Besides I will see the child way more the actual Godmother since I live on the same side of the country. My friend is a bit concerned I’m already failing at my Faux Godmother duties since at the play date Thursday her child tried to crawl under the couch and I didn’t even notice. In my defense, I was already sitting on the couch so I could not see her and I was holding someone else’s child. Does this make me a terrible Faux Godmother? Anyway, there is a ton to do with the Baptism and yada yada yada.
