One of the things Robert and I have continually been putting off is making a legal will.
Bad us, bad.
We don’t really want to do it because it’s so morbid to think about. We’re positive, optimistic people. Clearly we’re going to live forever.
I guess the most important thing is who would become guardian of the kids. And we haven’t quite figured that out yet. We have several options but so far nobody really takes the lead for one reason or another. It’s frustrating to think about and yet we know it would be even more frustrating if something happened to us and our wishes were not laid out.
On a lighter note, Rob has recently informed me of the song he wants played at his funeral.
His logic is that hearing the delightful melody will keep people from being sad and remember his quirky sense of humor.
And I started to cry bittersweet tears. Because it made perfect sense. After all, our song is Rock Lobster by The B-52s.
So I guess whoever gets the kids has to be a weirdo like us. Not sure we’ll ever find that person, but we’ll keep trying.
What criteria did you/would you use to determine who gets guardianship of your children?
