What is Mum 2 Mum? I have made many good friends online and often wish that I could sit down with them for a cuppa and chat like I do with my real life friends; other Mums with good advice, interesting stories to share, laughs to be had and experiences to learn from. Mum 2 Mum is a place where as online friends we can share a little of our own experiences, so why not pop in for a cuppa and join the conversation.
Today I was reminded of a conversation which I had with two good friends not that long ago. We were talking about the difficult task of choosing who will have guardianship of your child/ren in the (hopefully) unlikely event that both parents pass away. One friend shared that her sister would have been her first choice, except that they have very different religious beliefs. This was something she felt strongly about and so she had instead named her brother as guardian of her child.
Personally, when Dad 101 and I were discussing this same issue not long after Immy was born, our primary considerations were who would be in the best position to put our child’s needs first and would they be able to support her both emotionally and financially.
Whatever your personal priorities are, I don’t think this is ever an easy decision to make. I would love to hear what your major consideration/s were when nominating who would be named as guardian of your child/ren.
How did you choose?
