If I croak, who would I want to take over my parenting duties?
Guest blogger Paul Starke: Last week, I fell down some stairs in a subway station, and
although I'm fine, for a brief instant my life flashed before my eyes.
Afterward, I started thinking to myself: "Who would raise my son if -- God
forbid -- something happened to us?"
I don't have a will (my family can haggle over my DVD collection and gently used furniture), and my wife I need to think about these difficult things. We can't leave Luke with anyone from my family or Melissa's (they're all way too insane), so who gets the baby in the event of the unthinkable? Here now, "12 People Who Can Raise Our Kid if We Croak."
Barack & Michelle Obama - They seem like great parents and are about to move into a pretty nice place.
Siegfried & Roy - Luke loves cats, and I'm sure he'll love the circus.
Pamela Anderson - I wonder if she can still nurse a child even if she has hepatitis? I think Luke wouldn't mind either way.
LeBron James - Courtside tickets for life.
Bill & Melinda Gates - For obvious reasons. Although they need to stop giving billions away to charity and build Luke his own playroom made of gold and silicon.
Michael Jackson - Because he really really really really loves kids.
Billy Ray Cyrus - That guy did something right with Miley.
Oprah Winfrey - The kids would get kick-ass gift bags at his birthday parties.
The Huxtables - Hell, I wanted them to adopt ME when I was a kid.
Momlogic.com readers - I figure if you've come to this website, then you're a thoughtful, caring parent. That's good enough for me!Who would you want to raise YOUR kid?
