mama merit badges


So many of you reading this right now have earned all ten of these, and I just wanted you to take a moment and remember that every thing we do as mothers in this fucking world MATTERS and is significant not only to our families' lives, but to the planet we so often do not gracefully inhabit. Browse the website, read some stories, know that if I were rich I would buy for you all these little token gems of appreciation. But here they are, in virtual form, as my gift, for all the diapers we've changed, years we've nursed, choices we've made, and tantrums we've endured (both our childrens' and our own!)
P.S. Sorry, guys, I couldn't find any papa merit badges.....
P.P.S. Nor any for mamas of school-agers or teenagers.....
