also i'm talking about naruto's whole life with jariaya he had all those years and he decided to train him after he became kakashi's student? he knew his father and mother alot more than kakashi. atleast he knew them enough to get him to be the godfather. i think you need to evaluate the situation more kakashi is more like a big brother to naruto as jariaya was a grandfather.
But Jiraiya wasn't goofing off that whole time. He had t keep an eye on Orochimaru. He was able to find out and let the Hokage know about the gang of ninja that will come after Naruto. And from a chapter in the manga, Jiraiya forget that he was appointed Naruto's godfather. And in the same chapter or maybe a chapter after it, Jiraiya was thinking that he was a failure, so maybe he though Naruto would have someone better to take care of him and that Naruto would do better without him. Then when he came to the village, during the Chunin exam, he saw that no one cared about or was helping Naruto so he stepped in to resume his duties.
