Do you remember when I was complaining about scouting? That I wondered if the program was more for moms than the scouts themselves?
Well, first of all, I shouldn't be whining about that. That's dumb.
And second, the scouting program ABSOLUTELY knows how much the moms of the scouts do. That is why the moms get a pin when the scout advances. No one else gets a pin, only the long-suffering scouting-supporting mom.
I feel validated.
But, in my opinion, they shouldn't make the pins so camouflage-y. They should be yellow or red and jump out at you as you pass by and say, "Pat this mom on the back--her son has done something cool in scouts."
I would wear the prototype. I'm serious. I need all the pats on the back that I can get.
