One thing that is really important to me as a mom – especially as a single mom – is having a will in place. The possibility of leaving my baby behind should anything happen to me is a very hard thing to think about – which makes it hard to pick up the paperwork and get it done.
What helped me in a major way was getyourshittogther.org
It was started by a mother of two whose husband died suddenly and unexpectedly. She was unprepared and had to pick up the pieces one by one. She learned a lot from that awful experience and is kind enough to share. There is a lot of advice and materials on her website – INCLUDING FREE TEMPLATES!!! Her work is a huge help and I’m so grateful.
