Maybe I have just watched too many episodes of Max and Ruby over the last few years, but this afternoon during a particularly difficult task of motherhood, I couldn't help but think "I should get a Bunny Scout badge for this."
I desperately needed something to giggle about during a few tough moments today and found myself thinking about some of the Mommy Scout Badges I could claim.
Here are a few of my favorite accomplishments. Feel free to add your own in the comments:
Catching Throw Up Barehanded
Tossing French Fries into the Backseat
Getting a Stool Sample from a Child
Comforting Multiple Crying Children Simultaneously
Giving CPR to Your Own Child
Traveling Through the Airport
Speaking of accomplishments, tomorrow I get to attend multiple class parties. Due to the end of the year schedule, the only time we could work out to celebrate the children's birthdays at school is tomorrow. We are hosting three parties in three separate classes at the same time. The children are ecstatic about their solo celebrations.
The tradition at our school is for the birthday boy/girl to provide lunch for the class--so we will be serving chicken nuggets and fruit for 68. Each of the kiddos selected their own type of cupcake--and of course, their own themed plates.
I took this with my phone this afternoon as they selected their plates and napkins (in our immoral magazine cover-free Kroger!) Tomorrow should be a fun day.
