Before having a child, I paid little thought to things like wills, life insurance, and in case of emergency plans. I took a pretty laissez-faire approach to planning for the future.
A few months ago some friends of mine asked if I would be their child’s guardian should something happen to them. I was honored that they would think me a good choice! Honored and a little delirious with thoughts of what that actually meant. What type of school did they want their child to attend, public, private, Montessori? What were their views on immunization? Did they have funds set aside to help me with the financial burden of bringing another child into my world?
And even more alarming than the many things I was considering for their child was the fact that I didn’t have a plan in place for my own child should anything happen to me. Um, can you say jump-start! I immediately scheduled an appointment with my lawyer to set up a living will, power of attorney, and will. I called my insurance company to discuss life insurance policies. And I began having conversations with all of the people who may be affected if something were to happen to me.
