  • I just had a weird convo with my SIL. Has nothing to do with me TTC. She calls me up kinda crying-ish. They're getting on a plane Sunday and wanted to know if we'd be the guardians of their son (our nephew on DH's side) if something happened them. He's like just 1 yr. WHOA! God forbid, but I was pretty honored that they asked us. I'm always wondering why they don't ask us to babysit more often and this was a surprise. Like I said, God forbid anything happen, but if it did, I can see her fam getting in a huge huff/battle if DH and I were named guardians. Especially since there are a million sets of grandparents. Well I just wanted to share. Even though we can't quite be parents yet, at least someone out there sees us fit enought to be parents in the event....

  • I think you'll DEFINITELY make great parents and it's an honor to be asked.

    Because you can see the family getting all up in arms about guardianship, I'd encourage them to get it in writing YESTERDAY!! The last thing your family would need after a loss like that would be a big, drawn out custody battle.

    I don't think it matters how anybody becomes a mom as long as they do it with lots of love!! but, in this case, I hope it never comes to that!!
