What to do if something happens to you?
I had read a story a while back about a mom passing out and hit her head when she was alone with her 5 yr old.
The kid called 911 and had the ambulance show up.
I've taught and practiced with my kids to call my husband if something happens to me.
My main concern is that i don't want them just stuck alone freaking out.

Ds knows to call 911 and he also has a contact sheet in his backpack in case he forgets the phone numbers.

My 10 year old would know, but I'm alone with my 18mo old most of the time...

Mine was just born but I will be teaching her those types of things. I think it's really important and a lot of ppl don't think about it.
o.O....

Yes. We've practiced how to call and what to say.

that story prompted me to start a convo with odd about it.

When there was a chance she would have to go to a friend's bday party without us, I considered giving her one of our cells, and teaching her how to press the speed dial if she needed to talk to one of us. 

But it ended up being a nonissue. I also taught her how to speed dial 911 with the extra phone.
