As a mom to a too fast, too curious tot, one of my many fears is that Aki might get lost. One day we will probably use a harness on him. It may sound inhumane but if that is what it will take to keep him safe, I won’t mind being stared at. Imagine if he gets lost inside an international airport. Airport officials might think he is Indonesian and send him to Jakarta.
Since he is too young to memorize his full name, our address and contact numbers, I thought of another way to make him identifiable. My solution? A dog tag! Am so proud of myself for coming up with this brilliant idea. I got so excited that I got one for Aki and for my 10+ other nieces, nephews and godchildren.
It fashionable, unique and useful. The kids and their parents liked my gift. One side shows their picture and full name. On the other are our contact numbers and address. I didn’t forget to include the country code in our contact numbers and Philippines in the address so people would know where the kids are from.
Special thanks to my artsy fartsy sister for doing the lay out!
