Do you have a flashlight? Do you know where it is? Are the batteries dead? It's a good idea to have a flashlight on hand in case of an emergency/power outage. Store a flashlight next to your bed and make sure it's got batteries! You know your kids have been sneaking your flashlights and playing with them, so make sure you have some extra batteries on hand. If you're storing a flashlight for a longer period of time, remove the batteries so they don't leak acid and ruin your flashlight.
