This topic has caused many fights with my husband and myself.
I have a very, very, very close and involued large family.
My husband on the ohter hand a very very distance large family.
Our problem is that he always wants someone form his family. Which i strongly object to because they have nothing to do with our children, never see them or visit, bascially don't give a damn and my hubby parents are like this too.
But if they happen to on one of those rare ossassions come to visit I am expected to fall all over them and treat them like royalty, when i know for a fact through mutal friends they have bagged and belittled me.
I know that my children have my family and my parents as really they are the only grndparents they know and I really believe it's the only ones they'll ever know.
Getting back to the christening, the decisions lies with someone you trust, believe in to care for your child, the child will grow uo again and admire, basically someone you know will all ways be there for for your child and you.
