I was baptised into the Catholic Church as a baby, and while my husband isn't baptised at all, he is happy with my wishes to have our baby baptised Catholic as well (I've joked to him that maybe we can have a double baptism for him and our bub - he wasn't too impressed with the idea haha). However I have no idea who to choose as the godparents. I have 2 sisters, one of these sisters has 2 children, my other sister is godmother to our niece and hubby and I are godparents to our nephew. So I'd love my sister who is the mother of the kids to be the godmother as we're quite close and she hasn't had the honour of being a godparent yet. But then I don't know who to have as the godfather. My sisters husband could be godfather but that would just be a convenience thing, we're not actually all that close to him, we get along really well but he's so absent minded and I don't agree with some of his parenting styles so in terms of the traditional purpose of godparents which is to take care of the child should something happen to the parents, I wouldn't want him to be the father-figure in their lives.
I then have my SIL who I think would love to be asked to be a godparent, however she can probably wait til we have child #2 to be a godparent, otherwise it's just far too complicated!
So a thought I had was maybe having 2 godmothers, i.e. both of my sisters, and not having a godfather. I know it's not the traditional way of doing things but wondering whether the church would allow this, or whether it depends on the particular parish / priest? Otherwise the godfather will just be chosen for the sake of having a male godparent, whereas I know my 2 sisters would be the perfect godparents.
