Important Calendar Reminders Every Parent Should Have…March 12th marks the beginning of Daylight Savings Time – the day we welcome a much needed extra hour of sunlight after a long, dark and dreary winter! For many, this extra hour of sun, along with the warming temperatures, means that more time is spent outdoors, making it sometimes challenging for parents to stay ahead of those not-so-top-of-mind household tasks.
Family calendar: a calendar in a high traffic area of your home – such as the kitchen or foyer – helps to keep everyone up to date on events.
Replace toothbrushes: The Canadian Dental Association recommends you change your toothbrush every three months. Just think: with every new season…a new toothbrush.
Check medicine expiry dates: Remember that all medicines expire, including vitamins and supplements. Check your medicine cabinet twice a year for expiry dates.
Change the baking soda in your fridge: Placing a box of Arm & Hammer™ Fridge-n-Freezer™ or Fridge Fresh™ Baking Soda in your fridge or freezer helps to eliminate odours and keeps your fridge smelling fresh. While many use this simple tip, it can be easy to forget when it’s time to replace the open box.
Keeping healthy: Simple healthy habits, such as getting all of the required amount of fruits and veggies or taking vitamins, can slip our minds during hectic days.
Fire alarm batteries: You should change the batteries in your fire alarm/carbon monoxide detectors yearly.
Doctor and dentist check-ups: it’s good to have a yearly check-up to ensure everyone is ship shape.
