Pass Me that Badge

Hospitals, birthing centers and at-home midwives should always equip a new mother with a sash after that first baby is born. That should just be a thing.

And there should be three color options for mothers to choose from – pink, glittery black and perhaps a pretty beige linen tone for all my earth mamas out there.

Now here is where it would get good. All of us moms would earn badges for those awesome moments where we are like – look at this, I am both adulting and parenting. Fist pump to the air.

I would have definitely earned the ‘get up, get out, get errands done’ badge today!

We were all fed, dressed and out the door before 9, arriving early to haircut appointments for the boys. I don’t think I have arrived early to anything in four years.


After that we ran to 3 clothing stores to make some exchanges and to pick up some new items. Which quickly escalated into me fantasizing about buying girl clothes and going #floraleverything.

I almost picked out the ‘going home from the hospital’ outfits for both a baby boy and baby girl, but held off, as I will wait until the spring attire is officially out.


And then we lunched at our favorite Indian food restaurant.

And we did it all in the middle of two snow showers.

Badge earned.
