Why Didn't I Think of This?



For the longest time we've had a running joke here in sippycup land that we should have one of those pet finding chips implanted in each of the kids. The rate at which I lose things is ridiculous. Why not safeguard the kids against my total flakeouts? Well it seems the folks at Safety Tat beat me to the punch.


What a great idea!!! Say you're going to Disney and you want to make sure you have a way to help others locate you if you're child is lost...without writing on them with a sharpie! These are so cool. I've just ordered ten of the "boy" designs and ten of the "girl" designs. I think they'll be great for the beach, summer trips to the zoo, etc. They have lots of cute designs for boys and girls, and designs that alert to other health issues too. I have a friend whose child has a severe nut allergy, and these will be perfect for her. I just can’t get over what a fantastic idea this is - it’s odd that nobody ever thought of it before! I'll be keeping these in my purse from now on.

Oh my gosh, what a great idea!! I get some of the best ideas from your blog. Thanks!

I asked my pediatrician (only half kidding) if we could install a gps device in my youngest. She's my most likely to dissappear AND watch you as you search for her frantically. In fact, I just wrote about losing her on my blog.

I wish I had seen these last week. We went to Busch Gardens and I wrote with a sharpie our cell numbers on both kids arms. Great idea.
