Diapers, Drivers Licenses, and Diplomas, Oh My!

[ 0 ] November 24, 2010 |

As all of my coworkers know, I am a very proud aunt. So much so that I am often found showing off pictures of my adorable niece and talking about my brand new nephew. As I was driving home from the hospital at about 2:00 in the morning on the day he was born I started thinking about all of the things that a new birth brings.

There are so many hopes and dreams about what this new life will bring into the world. There are also many plans and preparations that parents make. I’m sure my brother and his family did a lot of planning waiting for my nephew to arrive. Now that he is here the planning doesn’t end!

Since I have never had any kids of my own I hadn’t thought about all of the things that need to be done. One of the most important things to do is add the new addition to your medical and life insurance plans. You’ll also need to apply for the social security number and store the card and birth certificate in a safe place. After you have their social security number you can open an account to start saving for college and the various other things that life with kids will bring.

From what I’ve learned it’s never too early to start that savings plan since there will always be something to save for at each stage of their life.
