Many, many years ago, I was a Brownie Girl Scout. Yes, I wore the beanie, sold the cookies, and earned the badges--and loved it! My daughter K. has joined a small troop made up of homeschooled girls, including some of her BFFs (Best Friends Forever, for anyone not familiar with the term).
Today, I braved the interstate highway and plunged into unknown territory to locate the Girl Scout store and procure a vest and its accouterments so that K. could be "official".
As I told Mimi, I feel that I deserve some sort of patch for that feat of dedicated motherhood. I really feel that there should also be some sort of recognition for the fact that I got most of her insignia and such attached on the same day (***shout out to Leanne***). And while I'm at it...maybe a patch for potty-training, too! Any more ideas for Mommy badges?
By the way, I think the Girl Scout Promise is a pretty good one for everyone:
On my honor, I will try:
To serve God and my country,
To help people at all times,
And to live by the Girl Scout Law.
