Mommy Merit Badges: Have You Earned Yours?

By Lauren Hartmann |

The other day I was texting a friend who was telling me about the all-nighter she’d just pulled taking care of her daughter who was up puking every couple of hours.  It sounded awful and I told her that she most definitely earned herself a mommy merit badge for making it through that, and it got me thinking…

What if we could earn actual merit badges for our mommy accomplishments?  So, I came up with a list of my own merit badges.

See which mommy merit badges you’ve already earned after the jump!

Yay! You survived 9 months of non-stop peeing, no-sushi-eating, crazy-hormone-having months and grew a real-life human and lived to tell the tale! Here's a badge!

    You might want to reconsider the “got dressed” icon. Clothes hanger + baby does not make me think of new-momny hygiene.
