When Arne, my first godchild, was baptised, I decided a personal gift for the years to come suited the occasion, so I wrote a bedtime story. With that first story came the promise to continue this tradition at every “godfather moment” (i.e. birthdays and New Year’s Day — Belgian children recite a New Year’s letter to their godparents, in case you’re not familiar with Belgian customs).
Arne’s 6th birthday is only a few days away, so I’ve just finished adding the 12th story! Only two more left… After that: time for a new tradition!
