So I have a few kids who take daily meds, and I've always kept them on the kitchen windowsill, right above the sink. (Cue scary music.) You know as well as I do that this is a Bad Idea, not only because the sunlight can't be good for the meds, but because the kids were getting a vocabulary lesson every time I knocked somebody's &%$*!# medicine into the &%$*!# sink.
But I didn't want to keep the meds in the medicine cabinet--how trite!--because then I wouldn't see them. And if I didn't see them, I would invariably forget to administer them. Which is also a Bad Idea. So finally---thanks, Pinterest!---after seeing everything from spices to puffy paint bottles to makeup magnetized and stuck to something of a metalic nature, it occurred to me: I have magnets, and I have a great big metal fridge.
No more soggy drugs, people! And I'm happy with the fact that they're high up enough to be inaccessible to all but the most motivated preschooler.
Now, I'm off to search for other bits and bobs to stick magnets to. Because everybody needs a hobby, right?
