Yesterday Redpepper and Polynerdist signed thier will and named me as the guardian of thier child should something happen to them. This is a huge honor and comitment to our family. I have a daughter and know the responsibilities of a parent well. I love thier son and have a vested interest in his well-being and development, so saying yes to this request was easy

And don't forget the fact that their son loves you to pieces. If anything were to happen to RP and PN I know that you would be such a big comfort to the little guy.

I like to think that kids are just a good judge of who's a good person. The fact that my kids warmed up right away to my husband's girlfriend really helped me be more accepting of her too. He's taken to you and accepted you as part of his family because you're a good guy and he can tell that you care about him and his mom and dad. Kids are smart that way

Kids and household pets. They have un-clouded intuition.

This is awesome guys, awe inspiring and uplifting.

One note, make sure the grandparents, and family know of these wishes as well. All though it is in the wills, it would suck if someone got it in their mind that they would be a better/more appropriate guardian than Mono, for whatever reason they might have.

Congrats on making such a huge decision and taking the steps to make it happen.

Yes they like you too. I didn't have to worry about their impression of you though because I already liked you (I only use them to gauge those I'm not sure about yet).
