Did you know September is Baby Safety Month?
We all obviously know how important it is to keep our children safe. We baby proof our houses, research the best car seats, and analyze everything that could possibly be harmful. Are we doing everything though?
When my daughter was around 18 months, she was all over the place. The girl had no fear. One day, she was playing with my car keys. No big deal, right? She took off down the hall to her room. When she came back, keys in hand, she was running. She then tripped on the rug in the living room and fell. With keys in hand, she fell straight on them. I can still see it all in slow motion. I contemplated taking her in for stitches, but once the blood was cleaned up, it wasn’t so bad. She still has a scar on her forehead. I don’t know that the incident could have been prevented, besides me taking the keys away, but there are so many little things that happen to them everyday, so why don’t we keep them safe and prevent what we can?
That’s why Baby Safety Month is an important one. We need to learn all we can about keeping our kids safe because what’s more important than them?
