So, what do you do when you have documents to have signed and notarized but you must bring your children along? You entrust in GreenvilleNotary.com to get the job done! Being familiar with different situations is the name of my game. The ultimate professional situation, in some people’s eyes, doesn’t involve little ones running around. However, if you know me and how I’ve had to deal in life with children on board, then you know some situations involving signing and bringing children along cannot be avoided.
Such the case with repeat signer, Krystel Emery and an endeared loved one, currently a patient at Greenville Memorial Hospital here in Greenville, South Carolina. Assisting Krystel with paperwork involving our beloved was difficult enough, as completing paperwork is NEVER fun (well, unless it’s for a scholarship or to win a prize from a sweepstakes or something).
Now, add three small children, 4, 5 and 9 years old. Yeah, you have to get very clever in order to have the entire process go as smoothly as possible. What was done to achieve our final result? We began a covert Special Operation, kid-friendly of course.
While paperwork was signed, all three children wanted to make sure that the imaginary ‘enemy’ would not find out about their secret operation, so they held their voices to a whisper and even ducked and played along as the signing went on.
The entire transaction involved several forms to be executed by the signer. I provided two uninterested and unrelated witnesses along to avoid the hassle of having to ask hospital staff for assistance.
When life gives you lemons, make lemonade, when life gives you children, you MUST adapt!
