Talking About: Child Identity Theft

Road trips are great times to talk. And with 10 days in the car, Jason and I had plenty of time to chat about everything from budgets and food to missing shoes, friends and, yes, Child Identity Theft

And because I didn't think you would believe me, I have video evidence of this conversation. Check us out as we are speeding across the highways of America discussing social security numbers and the little things we are doing to protect our kids. 

And yes, I look like crap and have a head cold. But don't watch it for me, but for Zoe in the background.
