Wah Wah

(You know ... the Debbie Downer sound .... wah wah).

It's a topic that no one wants to think about, but really should. Really. Really.

A will. A guardian. Life insurance. Disability insurance. Nothing makes you feel more like a grown up than talking about this stuff. Even more than having the kid in the first place!

We're still working on getting these details accomplished and I came across a good post on Parent Hacks the other day about this very thing.

Six Steps to Financially Prepare for the Unexpected

While you're at it, get yourself a living will. Your family will thank you for it.

Now, go have some ice cream. We're done with the serious stuff for today!

We got the Willmaker program at Costco and it definitely forces you to think about things you would never have thought of before. Thanks for the reminder to finish it!! We started it about a month ago...

Okay, how do I have a will and living will and you don't? What is this world coming to?
You two need to get on this. Oh and if anything happens, God forbid, I will throw them each a killer 21st birthday party!
