I am SO excited to be heading to Chicago in less than 2 weeks to visit the home of Contours Baby at Kolcraft Headquarters. I think I am most excited to meet Michelle, the lovely lady I work with over at Kolcraft and Jennifer from Mom Spotted whom I have been friends with online and on the phone over the last few years. I can’t wait to finally get to meet these ladies (and their babies!) in real life.
Contours Baby is my official sponsor for BlogHer 12 in NYC this year! I am so excited to be representing one of my favorite baby brands there! Their tandem stroller is my all time favorite double stroller and the one that we take everywhere with us! If you are going to BlogHer ’12 in NYC this year please be sure to subscribe to my feed, follow me on Twitter and connect with me on Facebook so we can meetup while there! I’ll also have some fun announcements coming up so you’ll want to be sure to stay connected with me! All links are up on the top right sidebar!
Whenever I get ready to leave my kids it always gets me thinking. Things change so much after you have children. Before I had kids I was a lot more likely to take risks. Now that I have kids I always weigh the benefits vs the risk. We used to ride a Harely Davidson motorcycle before we had kids. I never thought twice about hopping on with my hubby and going for a ride. After having kids it weighed so heavily on my mind that if we got in an accident our kids wouldn’t have parents anymore. We sold the Harley and bought a Rhino which is a 4 wheeler type of utility vehicle that we can all ride in on trails or alongside dirt roads. The kids each have a 5 point harness, top of the line car seat in it and always wear helmets. I feel much better doing that than I did leaving them to go on a motorcycle!
With all of that in mind I always come back to one thing on my to do list; creating a will! It’s that one thing that I never have time to get around to doing. If I would just sit down and connect with a law firm like Weinberger Law Group, who specializes in children and families, I’m sure the process would not be nearly as complex and time consuming as I imagine it to be. Have any of you created a will? What was involved? How long did it take? I really need to do this! I just can’t imagine if something were to happen to my husband and I what are friends and family would be put through without any direction as to our wishes.
