Re: Has anyone else ever done this? (Written phone number on kids?)

I've written my cell number on their actual bodies and on paper before and put it in their shoe. One other thing I do when we're going somewhere crowded is as they are getting out of the van I tell them to stand together and I grab my cell phone camera and snap a couple pics so I can look at the pic if I forget what they wore that day or if I need to show it to someone else helping me find them.

Yep. Sharpie straight down the arm. I started doing it when I flew alone with both kids (ages 1 & 3 at the time). Now I do when we go anywhere crowded. I go the idea from DH who used to write on DSD's arm when he took her to Grateful Dead shows as a baby-toddler.

Re: Has anyone else ever done this? (Written phone number on kids?)

great thread! I never thought of the look for a mommy thing. We do write the cell # on DS arm, but haven't really talked about what to do if he gets lost. duh!
I like the idea of snapping a pic before the festivities too!

Re: Has anyone else ever done this? (Written phone number on kids?)

I do this every time we go some where busy. I write "my name is Kate - if lost please call my mommy Jen at xxx-xxx-xxxx)

And Kate has known since about 22 months to say "please call my mommy" and show her arm if she cant find me.

I think that's a great idea. I'll remember it when DD is older.

We did this at the Taste of Chicago this summer on my 6 year old. He's not a wanderer but there's like a million people at this thing and it's so easy to get separated.

When we were at Disney I wrote our phone number on a silicone bracelet and they wore them on their ankles. It worked great

Re: Has anyone else ever done this? (Written phone number on kids?)

When I was little (many, many years ago lol) Once I knew my number my mom would always give me a quarter in my pocket that way I would always call her

Now I put a little braclet on my DS with his first name, age and my cel #

not spam but this is it http://www.ubc.lovablelabels.ca/newproducts.aspx?id=5

I have drilled it into my DS I will NEVER leave without him no matter what ANYONE says to him he is to STAY PUT!
