33 of 365


The Pesky - er, I mean, The Clever And Hardworking The Boy came home with yet more Cub badges on February 1st, which I dutifully and lovingly sewed onto his uniform the next day. Because I am a Good Mother. But you knew that already, right?! ;-)

Afterwards I ate one of the fortune cookies so kindly sent to me by Deb (thanks, honey!):

Well done to your wee man, and yum to your little treat :)

How about submitting him for a sewing badge, and he could sew on his own subsequent badges?

aw cub badges, im hoping to start back as rainbow/brownie assistant soon so will be giving out the badges perhaps. i love all the badges he's got, it's such an achievement for him. if only they were self sticking or else teach the boy to sew, hahaha.

Brings back memories of sewing on Brownie badges! Well done to The Boy - looks like he's got quite a few on his unifrom already.

That's an admirable armful of badges he's got!

I'm not sorry that my badge sewing days are over....like the idea of him learning to do it himself.....or maybe explain he doesn't have to get absolutely every badge.

Deb said...

Good job to The Boy for all his badges (and to his mom for sewing them on)!

Is that the last of your fortune cookies? You may have to find an online source for them, eh? ;o)

Love the idea of self-sticking badges. Heck, I'd even iron them on if they had that kind of backing... (Yes, me! I would iron!!) But mostly I wish that every Cub and Brownie had to do a sewing badge as part of their initiation *sigh*.....

Awesome picture! You are a good mom. This is one of those pix which you can look back on in the future and think about what he did for each badge. Love it!

Grats to your boy!!

Lovely lot of badges your boy has collected! Well done to him!
I used to have to sew on my own Brownie and Guide badges... he's lucky to have a kind mom to do it for him! Tell him he should do the next one and you'll recommend him for his sewing or handicrafts badge!

oh that reminds me I have 2 badges to sew on! Yikes I always forget!!

Denise said...

God that takes me back, sewing the badges on, I think one of my boys had a blanket that we sewed them onto for when he was at camp- must see if I can find it! Your boy has done very well and you are really good to sew them on straight away :-)

Used to love those badges in Brownies! Still have my brownie uniform complete with badges LOL

Amy said...

Well, something has to make you feel fortunate after all of that sewing! He is accumulating a mass of badges there :-)
