Even though this organization does not yet exist (to my knowledge), I am earning a new mommy merit badge as I draft this blog post on my iPhone: sit in parked car while baby finishes nap.
Some other mommy merit badges I have earned this past year include:
- ER visit (Pippa got dehydrated from a nasty stomach bug)
- plane trip
- road trip
- reading Go, Dog, Go to the baby for the hundredth time
- sleep training
- pulling the plug on sleep training
- sleep training, take two
- letting baby sleep in crib while sitting up because doctor says that's fine
Oh, how I long for a green vest decorated with mommy merit badges. Except let's substitute a diaper bag for the vest, ok? Even in the sixth grade, I knew how lame that damn vest was.
