Preschool & Sleeping Pills Don’t Mix

An interesting and scary thing happened in our family recently and I thought it important to share.

As with any morning, I got up and went downstairs to make lunch for my preschooler, Sofia, and to feed the dogs. When I opened her lunch box, down at the bottom was a single pill with the word TEVA on one side and 74 on the other. I looked up the pill and it was an Ambien sleeping pill.

I asked her how she got the pill and where it came from. She told me that it came from one of her friends at school (whom I have never heard of). Continue reading

Time Change: Daylight Savings – Spring Ahead

This weekend (Sunday, March 14, 2010) remember to set your clocks ahead one hour. Of course the means you’ll get one less hour of sleep Saturday night, but the bright side is literally brighter. Beginning Sunday evening it will stay light longer. This means you’ll save a bit of electricity by not burning lights as long and, of course, more time for children to enjoy the great outdoors. 

The time change can also affect Daycare Software since some functions use the time on your computer, such as a check in computer that runs Time and Attendance Software or a Child Care Time Clock. Most computers will automatically adjust the time for you, but it’s a good idea to double check before families begin checking children in and out Monday morning.                    

Enjoy the extra late afternoon sunshine and until next time, cheers!
