Identification, Please.

Hop aboard my time machine! I'm takin' it back to 1989 or so. I'm guessing that's about the time I got this:



It's my ID bracelet from elementary school -- kindergarten, I think! My name, address, home phone number, and birthdate are stamped on the back. My sister and I still have our matching ID bracelets, and sometimes, we still wear them. What? You can't wear your childhood ID bracelets when you're 28 and 32? Says who? Now that handmade, handstamped jewelry is all the rage, it is clear that my parents are the epitome of fashion forward.

I used to wear mine in college, mixed with whatever my favorite bracelets were at the time. Most girls at my school had Tiffany's, but I think my bracelet is way cooler than their cookie cutter heart-shaped bracelets. Right? RIGHT?!

Also, my parents still live at the same address and have the same phone number, so in the case of an emergency, they can still be reached! My sister posted her bracelet on Facebook a few months ago, and it gave me the urge to wear mine again. I've been wearing it since December 29 and have only taken it off for these pictures and to go through airport security for our Leavenworth trip. I'm takin' this to the grave!

Did you have one of these ID bracelets when you were a kid?
