When Ally, our oldest daughter was very little we made an agreement with her..
If she smokes or gets a tattoo – we, her parents get to name her first born child.. 🙂
We joke about it often and come up with crazy, crazy names that her child will need to live with..
Of course – it applies to Eden also – even though she never agreed to it..
I think I will make an exception for Eden – in fact I may even encourage a Medical Alert Tattoo
For 4 years we have struggled to get Eden to wear a medical alert bracelet or necklace. We have probably spent hundreds of dollars on various varieties and styles – that in the moment she says she likes and then won’t wear – or wears for a couple of days and then loses.
I thought we hit the jackpot last year when we found a basketball medical alert medallion. It came with a sticker stating “Type 1 Diabetes” to put on the back which came off rather promptly. I should really get in engraved – but I haven’t. I think it fell off the face of the earth for about 6 months before she found it in her bedroom a few weeks ago.
I insisted that she wear it when we went to Discovery Kingdom on her birthday because we envisioned her being separated from us in long lines (thankfully that didn’t happen – see here) You guessed it – she took it off 2 days later..
Granted – she plays a LOT of basketball and can’t wear a necklace – and we haven’t found a bracelet that will keep her interest.. I’m sick and tired of wasting $$ – but it is also getting to the point that she is going to be getting more independent and will NEED to wear one..
I REEEAAALLLLYY want her to wear one
– its a safety issue and will give me a little extra piece of mind.
I’m thinking a tattoo is the perfect way to go – think 12 is too young? 😉
wonder what she is going to want in return?
My car ?
Pick my nursing home ?
Guess I’ll start searching for other alternatives….
