    like theveed, i've only said yes to taking godchildren who i know i will see enough (or are close enough to their parents) to take an active interest in their growth and be a surrogate parent to. otherwise it's all BS in my opinion.

    so i have two inaanaks (both of them are my nieces). i try to keep in touch, even though we moved away to Florida....and yes, they are getting gifts this christmas

    Hmmm... Kaya pala lately dumadami ung inaanak ko kompared sa kapatid ko na matalino... mas malaki raw ako kumita... sorry po la po pira si ninong.... hahahaha

    Patawad po!

    parang oo yata...but they already know i'm an a--hole so hindi nasisira ang reputasyon ko :evillaugh

    j/k. serious answer - hindi ko naman binigyan ng flat no. sabi ko, i'm honored and will accept, but wouldn't it be better for someone else who will be around, and will nurture and take care of their child like she was his own, for the rest of her life?

    either na-convince ko sila...or they read between the lines and now they hate me for the rest of my life :hihihi:

    Yes, may naka-ready na regalo para sa kanila tuwing Pasko.

    Kung hindi nakapunta at alam ko ang bahay o may kakilala,- ipinapaabot ko na lang.

    Kung hindi nakapunta at hindi ko alam ang bahay at wala akong alam na kakilala,- recycled na lang para sa iba o sa ibang okasyon....

    yes, mostly in kind - i love wrapping presents :-) kaya maaga ako nagpupunta sa 168, market market at mga tiangge. last minute, sa malls :-)
    i have 35 Godchildren as of Sep 2006 ... mas madami pa compared sa age ko wahehehe (dami kasi relatives & dear friends)

    i stopped giving gifts dun sa 18yo+ ko. but since maaga sila nag-asawa, i give gifts to their kids na (2 pa lang naman sila)

    wala pa naman naliligaw sa bahay ko tuwing pasko. kung sakaling may magpunta man, baka abutan ko nalang ng pera. wala kasi akong tyaga bumili ng regalo at hindi din ako marunong mamili.

    oo naman! konti lang naman inaanak ko kasi... I just accept kung kaibigan ko talaga yun isa sa parents... buti na lang suplado ako kaya konti kumukuha sa kin ninong pero i make sure na makakarating sa inaanak ko yun aguinaldo nya sa kin, ako pa nag-aabot pag may time ako lalo na kung di nakapunta sa kin yun bata. yun fiancee ko sobrang dami inaanak. may 50 na yata or mahigit pa kaya pag namimili kami, sa divisoria saka bargain talaga... swerte ng mga inaanak ko since konti lang sila saka di ko tinitipid yun regalo lalo na kung naging good boy or girl sila...

    mali naman yan. at saka hindi naman lahat ganyan. friend ko nga, alan na broke na broke ako pero ako pa rin ang kinuhang main ninong ng cute baby nila. kasi alam nila na magiging isa akong mabuting role model ng anak nila balang araw.

    Sabi nga nila. Pero as for me, madami akong tinanggihan eh. Dami ko na kseng inaanak. Pero I tell them politely naman.
