You find glue sticks in unusual places … like melted onto the front seat of your car.
You use empty cookie boxes as extra storage space at work.
Your co-workers use empty cookie boxes as extra storage space at work.
You have more markers than a pre-K teacher.
You make sure there’s a bottle of wine waiting for you after troop meetings. Especially because you have one girl who passes out at the sight of blood and a child who asks, “What is God?” at your first-ever meeting.
The number of photos of your scouts rivals the number of photos of your family members — even during the holidays.
Little girls run up and hug you during school field trips or parties.
Parents enthusiastically acknowledge you at the grocery store, even when you are decked out in your Zumba party attire.
Your husband groans, “Oh no … another meeting?” when September arrives.
