Go ahead and call me a bad mom, but I typically do not have photos of my children on my person. That's right...not even in my purse. In fact, I only have my purse with me approximately 50% of the time. If you were to ask me for a photo of my child, I would probably have to go home, pull the memory card out of our camera, open it on the computer and either email it to you or print it out. I just don't carry them with me.
So when I saw this idea for how to have a photo of your children handy, I thought it was brilliant, so not we do it too.
Whenever you are in a public place and have a fear of losing sight of your children (you know, park on a busy day, festival, fair, theme park, busy street, tourist venue, whatever), use your cell phone to take a photo of your children BEFORE you get to the venue. This way, in the event your child gets lost, you have not only a recent photo of them, but even the exact outfit they were wearing when they disappeared.
Now I know this is not a pleasant thought to consider, but it is reality and as a parent, is something we must think about.
So use this tip to always have a handy current photo of your child on hand in case you ever need it.
And afterwards, you have a cute wallpaper for your phone on a day-to-day basis.
To provide peace of mind, this works for me. Visit We Are THAT Family to see what works for others!
