'Radarizing' Children's Clothing and Equipment

I have come to the conclusion that either I need to purchase a short-range radar or have microchips embedded in the children's toys, clothing and other gear. This morning, shortly before a child was to be on the soccer field, her full sock shin guards went missing. She claims to not have seen them. Mysteriously, they've disappeared from the house. They weren't under the bed, in the clean or dirty laundry, and they certainly weren't put away where they belonged. Time to invest in a radar. We really need one. After all, dad and I have a knack for losing keys and wallets, so we could benefit from such an investment as well.

And, isn't it always the case that it's my fault? Mommy, I don't know. What did you do with them? Seriously, I have enough trouble keeping track of my own stuff know I have to remember where the socks you took off of your feet went--the ones your father swore he packed in the bag so they were ready to go? Seriously?

I'm going to have to take some serious steps here. I can never get out the door on time when I have to go on a hunt through the house for missing items. You know, it's always at THE last minute too--that eleventh hour.

I just had a thought, maybe the shin guards have donned camouflage. Yep, that must be it.

I think it's just a shin guard thing. I think I'm still missing some from 19 aught 87. ;)

I don't even have kids yet and I already have this problem because of one curious puppy and one mischievous dog. Give them 10 minutes outside their crates and a few highly valuable items, and you WILL find your most expensive bra somewhere underneath the stove ;)

As soon as you know more about this conceptual radar/tracking system going live, you must let me know. I will buy it and know where my dogs are at every moment of the day!

UPC Codes. We need to scan all valuables with UPC codes. That way, we can keep an inventory.

Ugh. Your post just reminded me, again, that I lost my keys. I'm trying to forget and accept the fact that I'm going to have to spend a bajillion dollars replacing everything. A key radar would be great. Maybe you could get to work on that.
