In only-vaguely-related-to-baby news, M and I are spending this evening reviewing the final drafts of the legal documents we had done to protect our increasingly complicated family structure. Throughout the various powers of attorney and wills and so forth, the phrase that is repeated over and over is: "I, M... bequeath to my friend, K..." It's funny (and not) to see our relationship referred to that way in legal documents. I get that we are legal strangers and that's why we're doing this whole thing, but it's still weird to see it in print. I wish we could just leave the relationship terminology out altogether. Oh well. When all of this is done, M will be the legal guardian of "my" child should anything happen to me, and since we're signing papers on Monday, this protection will be in place from the first minute of the child's life which gives both of us so much peace of mind.
