Review Safety Rules 

So this happened… 

A nickel was mysteriously wedged between the plug of the wall lamp and the bottom outlet. We were tucking the girls in, and as I was plugging the nightlight in, the circuit was completed. Sparks flew. A few choice words did, too. 

How “someone” managed to get that nickel positioned the way it was without zapping themselves or setting the house on fire is a modern miracle.

Since then, I have been going over every safety rule I can think of since they seem to have forgotten at least one. 

  • Don’t run with scissors
  • Look both ways before crossing the street
  • Metal and electricity, BAD!
  • People with puppies, candy, and vans should be avoided
  • Never swim alone
  • Don’t touch a hot stove

The list is endless. I assumed they knew this stuff, and a refresher course was unnecessary.  I was wrong.

Every now and then, it’s a good idea to review these with your children. Learn from my mistakes, people!
