The Mother's Pin
Thursday was Bobcat day in our family. My son earned his Bobcat badge in Cub Scouts, and we had the badge ceremony at Thursday's pack meeting. Following tradition, my husband flipped Jacob upside down so that I could pin his badge on upside-down (it's turned around after he does a good deed). And then Jacob pinned a mother's pin on me.
This is another set of milestones placed before me, as mothers receive a pin each time their son advances in rank throughout the scouting program. Surely glioblastoma is no match for a mom who is determined to keep receiving mother's pins until her son becomes an Eagle Scout.
