Most parents can easily provide at least one anecdote of a time where their child lost something, whether it’s value be small or large. These things, regardless of size, cost money. We all know this going in, or we very quickly find it out when we encounter the costs of basic necessities, much less lost items that a child has either received as gifts or earned from household participation. We place labels on items, only for the labels to fall off, fade or deteriorate through contact with water.
A black permanent marker was a go-to solution back in the day. Nearly thirteen years ago, when my son was born, eBay was becoming increasingly popular. Sales of gently used children’s clothing soared. The black permanent marker, while still a solution, devalued the sale price of used children’s clothing, so I opted not to use them.
The alternatives to the black permanent marker were slim. The only thing that offered more superior performance was a sewn in label and my Home Economics skills seem to have escaped me. Not to mention the fact that exerting the effort to sew in a label for clothing that would be outgrown in a matter of months wasn’t high on my priority list.

I sure do wish these were around 13 years ago. I cannot count the number of items that remain M.I.A. because we did not label them. I remember leaving a light jacket in the shopping cart return at Walmart. Of course, we’d be hard pressed to try to even fit half of my son’s arm in it today, but if it were labeled it might have been returned to us in time to make good use of it.
It goes without saying, the apple doesn’t fall far from the tree. I could make good use of the chalkboard labels. One might call me the absent minded party attendee!
