10 Things to Double Check Before Spring

By caseymullins |

Warmer weather! Sunny days! Rainstorms! With everything wonderful about spring there’s something I always forget about. Whether it’s making sure we have enough sunscreen or the right clothes at the right time, there’s always something that goes awry in my spring planning. This year I’m hoping to avoid any last minute trips to the store by being prepared before the sun comes out regularly and Addie is begging to play outside and in the puddles from sun up to sun down.

This year I was super prepared for winter, I had gloves, coats, hats and even a super fancy sled AT THE READY. Only winter never really came and the sled is still sitting out there, brand new. But! Had I not been prepared with everything the snow would have dumped and we would have been stuck inside mitten less and there wouldn’t have been a sled to be found for four counties. I also take credit for no real natural disasters as of late, I’m stocked on water, food rations and anything else that may be needed in the event of a weather related emergency. (You’re welcome and knock on wood.)

Here’s 10 things to double check around your own home before spring has really sprung.

Getting Ready for Spring

Do shoes fit?

With the changing of the seasons there is usually a changing of footwear as well. Does your child have a pair of sandals that fit? What about rules at their school about open toed shoes? If they're not allowed what shoes are?

    Love Addie’s angry birds band aid. Great article, of course, Casey! Thanks for the reminders. Although it looks like spring is near…they are still talking of one to two FEET of snow this weekend up in the mountains. :(

    At Home Depot or Lowes you can buy little metal clamps that can attach to the sides of your windows. This can let you leave the windows open at a safe height so that kids don’t fall out of upper story windows and intruders don’t break into bottom floor windows. They are cheap and easy to screw on or off.
