  • It really depends on your assets and plans whether you can do one online. DH is an attorney and he set it up where money goes into a trust for the kids. That way...if I die and evil stepmom came into the picture, and they got divorced or if DH died, she c

  • We made one before she was born. It was rough to have to think about but we wanted everything planned out in case something happened to us. Picking her guardians was the hardest part. We went back and forth on that for months.

  • I don't even want to think about something happening to us, but I know it is something that we need to plan for just in case.  DH already has a will because he is a firefighter.  We definitely need to get something in writing, I know that I woul

  • Crap, am I the only one who hasn't thought of this?!

    I think DH and I will be having another convo tonight. It's tough to think about but I know it needs to be done. DH has 2 brothers, one is a druggie and the other one is in Mexico, I have a br
