Mamas, Check that Box
Every mom has a million tasks floating around in her brain. We are master multi-taskers. Typically we are the ones that make sure the kids have their library books packed for school, there is milk in the fridge, and the photography session is scheduled with enough time to order the Christmas cards and not have to pay for expedited shipping. Some work at home with the littles; others work at the office and tackle the to-do list after they get home.
But we all have two things in common: the desire to do all the things and the need to protect our babies (whether they are 3 or 23).
So many moms have told me that they've thought about making a Will many times, but they just haven't gotten around to it. Or they weren't sure what to do or where to begin. The common theme is feeling the weight of that big, unchecked box on the to-do list and also feeling responsible for ensuring the safety and well-being of their precious kiddos.
You never know what life has in store. We all hope and pray that we get to live long, happy lives, but that isn't always the case. The reality is if you die without a Will, the state will determine what happens to your assets/property and, worse, what happens to your children.
For me, this is a sobering thought. I am admittedly Type-A, so this lack of control really makes me anxious and uncomfortable. Contrarily, you might be a very laid-back, go-with-the-flow type, but I'm guess this is one issue you aren't ambivalent about. All of us moms would rather decide who raises our children instead of some judge.
I want to help you gain security from knowing you have a plan in place to take care of your family in case you and your spouse are gone. You can finally feel relief by checking the box that you have thought about so many times before.
