Here’s a fun and easy safety tip that I try to follow when taking the kids out and about. And by out and about, I mean the Zoo or a Museum, not the grocery store. Although this could work for grocery store trips, let’s use the Zoo as an example.
When we arrive at the Zoo, I take their picture with my digital camera (or camera phone). Now I have at least one good photo to use in future photo albums and (here’s the safety part) if – God forbid – they go missing, you have a very current photo to share with the authorities.
