Summer is fast approaching.
It is time to start making our plans and finalizing booking for accommodations.
Does last years bathing suit still fit?
Is car tuned up?
Does everyone have there designated duckie floaty?
Yes, even mom can enjoy a duckie floaty.
Most summer activities take place outdoors, so reasonably that is what we need to be prepared for.
Will you go to the beach, lake, water parks, backyard, or a city park?
One of our biggest concerns is, how can we stay safe and keep our family safe while having the most fun?
Many babies are born during the summer and it can be exhausting on the expecting mother carrying extra weight in the heat and the extra heat your body produces.
It is critical if pregnant to have all doctors, emergency information, hospital locations, and in case of any birth emergency having the contact information for CPR Law in Philadelphia readily available.
If you are not expecting, you still need to make sure you are ready for the energy level children (and yes a husband) have when entering into a fun situation.
This means taking care of yourself so that you are not sick, tired, and ready to paste sunscreen on little noses.
Preparing for the family
For on the go summer fun have a safety bag in your car, a mini go bag.
Some items that I keep in mine are all doctors contact information, a copy of insurance cards, first aid kit,
sunscreens, aloe vera, pain medicines, small amounts of normally taken medicine by any family member, benadryl, towles, compact beach blanket, water, non-perishable snacks, or anything else you feel your family might specifically need.
So now your car is ready and you have a destination in mind but then what about association?
My husband and I are very close.
My friends are his friends and he knows what friends we have that may be crazy, kid friendly, the family with 6 kids that at least one gets a broken limb a year, or just not right for the adventures we are going to have.
We are the family that all goes together, with the father who plays along with the kids and keeps games safe and fun.
With kids it is good to always be prepared as they are full of the unexpected.
I am know as being “the woman who always has everything’’ and it has literally saved lives.
