The weather is warming up and we are all getting to be outside! Finally! This winter took for.ev.er to wrap up and even now we’re still having cold days here in the mid Atlantic. Even so, my kids and I aren’t housebound any more and there’s a lot more time spent on the playground, in the yard, and soon we’ll be able to go to the pool.
Sidebar: I love the pool. Nothing makes kids sleep as well as an afternoon of swimmng.
The downside to being outdoors in the warm weather is all the injuries that come along with it. I don’t know about your kids, but mine have no regard for their own health and safety. My baby munches mulch. My son goes flying through the air as he leaps off playground equipment. There is never a day where they aren’t bruised, scraped and dirty. Knock wood, the injuries are never serious, but they’re constant.
In preparation for summer, I’m stocking up my medicine cabinet and first aid kit for the car. Here are my must have items for summer safety!
