Baby RC's first tramp stamp

I saw this on the news and reminded me of a book I read, Jennifer Goverment, so I started playing with it. I suppose there is some invasion of privacy or some evil historical events that make this a bad idea, but what if we tagged our children.
point your barcode reader at that!
and you could put a lot more info in it, address, phone number, allergies...
see... I know we all love our children and would do anything to protect them, but have I gone overboard? I suppose when we have to fear the minority of evildoer and protect our information as much as our babies maybe not as good an idea as I would like. And what if you move a lot, do make a whole belt line of tats? Temporary tats!! Oh wait, the kidnappers can rub that off. Is there such a thing as a shallow tat that only lasts a year? Or the GPS chip embedded in the neck, yeah! 
So I sit here with my little angel strapped across my chest thinking of how I can keep her safe. Feed, change, and swaddle her in love will be the first steps, chips, tats and leashes can come later.

  1. We do understand.. the most important lessons you can teach your baby girl are how to recognize danger and what to do about it. You'll do fine, daddy-o.
    HA... moving a lot, I'd have been one totally tatted kid, but who's to say that military brats didn't have the first micro-chips without knowing it, eh?
