I have been, or can be if you click on a link and make a purchase, compensated via a cash payment, gift, or something else of value for writing this post. Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.
While hopping about earlier, I discovered this meme and thought it would be fun to join in this week. After all, J is now a toddler.
This Week’s Topic:
Emergency Kit for your babysitter. Do you have one? What is in yours?
Well, you’d think having been a Health and Safety Instructor for the American Red Cross for years I’d have an ‘official’ emergency kit.
But, we don’t….
It’s not that I haven’t pulled one together. It’s more a result of a certain child going in and using up the bandages and scattering contents.
So, we just kind of gave up and make sure whoever is watching the boys knows where different supplies are in the main bathroom. As our current sitter is eldest son, it’s an easy education process for us.
You can find resources all over with suggestions for an emergency kit, including on the American Red Cross site. Pulling one together is a requirement for the Boy Scout First Aid merit badge, too. So our older sons have experience in gather supplies.
And they aren’t afraid to apply a bandage when needed..
Next week’s topic is going to be: What is your toddlers favorite summertime toys?
Suggested topic by me for the future: What are the favorite books on your toddler’s ‘reading list’ and who reads to them?
