#14: Write your will Womp womp. This one is a bummer. It’s sad and hard to think about parting ways with your loved ones. The sooner you do it though the less time you have to dread or linger on it. I’ve recommended this site here before and I will keep on recommending it. They have used their painful experience to make your experience of planning as painless as possible. So get started on it an get started talking with close friends and family about your plans. You might be surprised at who comes out of the woodwork as who would be the best caregivers to your child. And who would not. Know you need to do it but can’t get motivated? How about partnering up with another single parent and making it a date? You can do it!
